Following in the footsteps of the likes of H&M, Monsoon and Zara, River Island is now launching its own homeware section and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
We haven’t got long to wait either, because the 160 piece-strong line will land in stores and online on September 25 and the store will no doubt hope to rival its high street competition who already boast successful home accessory ranges.
The store’s clothing can be hit and miss depending on the season. Sometimes we love it, sometimes we wonder what the buyers were thinking, but the River Island homeware collection falls most definitely into the former category.
It boasts the brand’s signature sassy and glamorous vibes rounded off with playful touches. And with cool and cosy Mongolian furry cushions, sleek candle holders and playful printed pieces on offer, it’s sure to win you over.
Think folklore, think funky and fashion-forward and some major animal magic woven in there too. It’s all rounded off with a few minimalist and Nordic pieces so you really can mix and match.
So let’s take a sneak peek at the key pieces in the River Island homeware collection…

Head of Homeware Buying at River Island, Dayna Sofair said of the range: “The launch of our brand-new RI Home division heralds the beginning of an exciting chapter for us. Style doesn’t end at our clothes. Where we eat, the fragrance we wear and way we decorate our homes says as much about us as our favourite pair of jeans. With this in mind, we wanted to give our customer the chance to bring some of that signature River Island style and personality out of the wardrobe and into their homes.”
You’ll need to wait until September 25 for the range to go live, but you can check out River Island’s current offerings here.
