We know and love the British high street for fashion finds and now they are catering to our interiors thirst too. We’ve rounded up the best homeware pieces that won’t break the bank to buy now. 

Fashion and interiors sit hand in hand, both a creative expression of your own sense of style. A decorative vase says just as much about you as your new embroidered dress. With an increased amount of time spent at home we have been considering interiors so much more than before, often in place of our usual fashion buys.

You could be forgiven for thinking the most stylish interiors come with a hefty price tag – some of them certainly do – but there are some brilliant homeware pieces to be found at our favourite high street stores. 

We have had a serious love in with the great British high street for a considerable amount of time. It has served us through our formative years and continues to be our destination of choice for every aspect of our wardrobe from workwear through to weddings. And now the high street is quenching our interiors thirst too.

Fashion influencer Monikh Dale’s now sell-out large glass Zara vase with a wooden holder is often the centrepiece to her Instagram posts; industry insiders are snapping up H&M Home’s rattan offerings like it’s new season Prada; and French Connection’s iconic Poppy Field rug garners for industry insider homes than Diptyque candles. 

Scandi-cool Arket is the go-to retailer for cult Portuguese homeware brand Bordallo Pinheiro and its fruit and vegetable-inspired porcelains; Anthropologie continues to deliver bohemian-inspired pieces that will make your home feel like you’re actually in Ibiza; and La Redoute brings a French je ne sais quoi to interiors.

From vases to mirrors and everything in between, these are the best interiors pieces from our favourite fashion high street stores to add to your basket now.
