Ooh la la – the new La Redoute catalogue est ici! Better known for a fashion range which represents reasonable value with a soupcon of French flair, La Redoute is actually more useful as a homewares source. They do good, simple curtains and tablecloths in cottons and linens in highly usable colours like grey, aubergine and taupe. Their towels and bedlinen are excellent quality and reasonably priced. They usually do a fantastic selection of duvet covers but I didn’t spot anything too exciting this time round. However, these pretty embroidered white napkins, tasselled towels, fresh blue and white tea towels and the big bale of brightly coloured tea towels are all examples of some of the nuggets you can find amongst the current collection.
