BHS Is Getting Its Freak On!
When did this happen?
WHEN did BHS join the great and the good of the Design world? I’m thinking that maybe there’s been a huge shake-up in the management structure or something because there’s been some pretty drastic restyling within BHS…and it’s all good!
I would have perceived the interior offerings from BHS as the ‘safe’ and ‘conservative’ choice for the discerning shopper but it would appear that BHS has cottoned onto the whole distressed, vintage and retro design trends of present.
Even their display windows have had a major overhaul! They are all much more casually dressed and industrial inspired, with ladders as props and funky lighting arrangements. Bravo BHS, bravo!

It would also appear that one of those cushions followed me home today…sneaky. This cushion had my undivided attention when I first clapped eyes on it. Whilst it’s been described as taking inspiration from the 1950s, it definitely has a Pop Art feel to it. Either way, it looks blinkin fantastic with my Tolix chair. Hurrah!
I’ve just realised how eclectic my little arrangement is, check this out: modern and vintage inspired cushions from B&Q, M&S and BHS; bookcase from IKEA (distressed using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint), original 1970s Anglepoise lamp from Ebay, authentic Tolix chair from Made In Design and modern metal wall art from a local independent retailer (the piece of art resting against the wall was undertaken by my Mum) . This is a great illustration of how it pays to mix ‘n’ match furnishings and accessories of different styles to prevent a design from looking too polished and one dimensional. I’m biased but I think it’s looking pretty darned impressive!
