Will Neisha Crosland, James Irvine and Sebastian Conran be household names when the summer’s over?

Silly season it may be with stupid stories making the headlines but this August is brimming with hot news in the design world.
Like the imminent sartorial marriage of H&M and Jimmy Choo, home ware shops John Lewis, Debenhams and Muji are looking to serious designers to pull in sales this September.

Who would have thought it? John Lewis has partnered with super cool designers including Neisha Crosland, Sebastian Conran, Nick Munro and Matthew Hilton – some are in store now, others will be from September.
Below is Sebastian Conran’s kitchen collection for John Lewis.

It is quite a PR coup to have bagged Crosland; her hotly anticipated collection of wallpaper, fabrics and bedlinen (inspired by Elizabethan and Jacobean England and oriental Shanghai deco) is her first entry onto the high street.

Down the road, MUJI, the Japanese lifestyle chain has teamed up with iconic German company Thonet led by British designer James Irvine and German furniture manufacturer Konstantin Grcic. The result? MUJI manufactured by Thonet is an affordable collection of simplified, stylised Thonet designs made of bentwood and tubular steel including Irvine’s Bentwood chair (£215) and a beech table/ desk (from £325) designed exclusively for MUJI.

This Autumn/ Winter, Designers at Debenhams have partnered up with (another) fashion legend; Ben de Lisi – look out for his cheeky bulldog cushions – and watch this space for an interview with the dress designer.
