AUTUMN’S MOST COVETED EXCLUSIVES
This season we bring you a selection of exclusive collections and unique collaborations. These are five of our favourites.
We strive to offer a special mix of products that can’t be found elsewhere, whether it’s exclusive editions of the finest brands or our own-brand product ranges created by our in-house design teams, such as Design Project by John Lewis and Kin by John Lewis. Here are five of our favourite exclusive pieces from this season’s collections.
JOHN LEWIS DRAPER CHAIR
You can explore Collector’s House online or in your nearest shop.
With its glossy velvet finish and graphic mid-century shape, the John Lewis Draper Chair is one of the star pieces of our Collector’s House trend for this season. Highlighting the current love of ‘maximalism’ in interior design, this carefully considered look features tactile, decorative products in rich, jewel-like colours and dramatic shapes.
The 250-piece trend collection is bold, eclectic and expressive, mixing eras and materials in unexpected ways, whether it’s an exclusive-to-John Lewis Cole & Son wallpaper, an opulent gold-leaf chandelier or the luxuriant upholstery of the Draper chair.
SAMSUNG THE FRAME
The Frame in copper is available exclusively at John Lewis in shops and online.
The beautiful new television from Samsung, The Frame was conceived by product designer Yves Béhar to look like a piece of wall art when it’s not in use. It’s stylish enough to fit into any decorating scheme, with an almost undetectable connection and a wall mount that leaves no gap between The Frame and the wall. This is a TV like no other.
When you’re not watching it, you can either display a piece of art from our specially curated selection of 100 artists’ work or you can upload your own favourite images, allowing you to change your art to suit your mood. With bezels available in different colours, you can even change the frame itself to match your style. And John Lewis is offering an exclusive copper-coloured bezel Frame, only available here
COACH THE EDIE 28
The Edie 28 in Stone leather is available exclusively in selected John Lewis shops and online. (coming soon)
One of America’s leading luxury houses of leather since the 1940s, Coach’s effortless, accessible style was really developed by its 1960s Creative Director Bonnie Cashin. Her approach has influenced the brand ever since. Even today, creative director Stuart Vevers, the British fashion designer who made his mark at Mulberry and Loewe, continues to play on Cashin’s low-key chic, creating new iterations of classic bags such as The Edie.
This shoulder bag’s slouchy shape and butter-soft leather make it a favourite year after year. And this season, we bring you the Edie 28, a scaled-down version of the original in polished pebble leather that is available only at John Lewis, making this beautiful bag even more special.
DESIGN PROJECT BY JOHN LEWIS NO.036 DINING RANGE
Visit John Lewis online and in store to discover No.036 Dining Range.
When our design team launched Design Project by John Lewis last year, the intention was to create beautifully crafted pieces inspired by the best of progressive design principles. And the No.036 Dining Range, designed by Charlie Fowler, lived up to its billing when the Furniture Makers’ Company awarded it with a Design Guild Mark, which recognises excellence in furniture design.
Deceptively simple, this engineered oak dining table, bench and chair combine an elegant, contemporary look with clever details such as a long, shallow curve on the underside of the table, which makes sitting more inviting, and an immensely strong A-frame structure.
VALENTINO VALENTINA BLUSH
Valentino Valentina Blush is exclusive to John Lewis in shops and online.
For the fourth iteration of Valentino’s exquisitely feminine scent Valentina, perfumer Alexis Dadier has created a new fragrance, which the brand has described as “the symbol of a luminous, sparkling and radiant state of mind”.
An unexpected blend of Italian floral and oriental notes, Valentina Blush is centred around top notes of Morello Cherry and Pink Pepper, and it’s all grounded by Orange Blossom absolute and Praline accord.
