Designer Wayne Hemingway, who started hugely successful fashion brand Red or Dead and made Doc Martens cool again, has gotten into homes and interiors in a big way (sensible guy). But he’s not just doing it for those with pots of cash – he’s designed a wonderfully retro range of affordable homewares for John Lewis.
What I particularly like about the collection is that it’s so eclectic. It’s as if he came up with each print and then decided which item it would suit, no matter which room in the house it was for. The result is a really random mix of cool bathroom bits, storage tins, sewing supplies, notepads and wall canvases.
