Steph from Housetohome heads to the John Lewis trend event to find out what the big looks for Autumn/Winter 2015 are.
Chrisine Kazoulis, Buying Director Home, John Lewis explains that she is going to talk about one of the first big trends of the season – Indulgence. It is a trend that celebrates luxurious materials. It is a move on from austerity, where people have been frightened to enjoy the luxuries of life. This trend features a host of beautiful materials, from marble to wood and metal to velvet – beautiful materials that we’ve probably not had in our homes for a while.
Top trend-defining buy for AW15
Christine’s favourite trend-led item is a sofa in the Indulgence range called Odyssey. “ It is the most gorgeous sofa you can imagine and the navy blue colour makes it such a statement piece you’d want to treasure it for years”

Investment piece of the season
Christine would pick the cocktail cabinet. She says that it is a beautiful cabinet that would be handed down through the generations. “I love the fact that it is about celebrating, and about entertaining at home”. The cabinet has a great story too; this particular piece was made in a family-owned factory in Italy. They have generations of experience. As Christine explains “they are complete artisans making this truly gorgeous product”
