Our pick of gingham homeware for a laid-back, summery look

From bed linen to tablecloths, gingham textiles are the perfect summer update.

It’s amazing how a relatively simple fabric can have such powerful connotations. Gingham instantly conjures up connotations of happy summer days: picnic blankets, wide-skirted dresses, pretty cushions. 

Because of this, it’s a really easy way to add a touch of freshness into any room. Bright shades will create a joyful mood, while more muted tones add more of a laid-back vibe. Whatever your preference, here is our edit of gingham homeware available now.

Kitchen

From hardworking kitchen items like tea towels to tablecloths to set the tone for a celebration, gingham is a cheerful addition to a kitchen and dining space.

Cushions and throws

Frilled gingham cushions will add a pretty, cottagecore vibe to your space, while simpler styles in more muted colours will work with everything from rustic to minimalist interiors.

Bedding
