    If you take a browse through the new offerings from the Heart of House range at Argos, you might find yourself thinking… Argos, is that really you?! When the spring summer look book landed on our desks, we all agreed, they’ve definitely stepped it up a notch.

    The Heart of House range was launched last autumn and I was pretty impressed with how they’ve created a more considered range, with trend pieces alongside classic designs, but with the budget friendly price tags we know (and love!) from Argos.

    The range shows attention to quality finishes and design details. As Alexi Cowan, Head of Trends explains, ‘Look out for deeply buttoned upholstered chairs, delicate embroidery on cushions and natural textured furniture that will add character to rooms’.

    These pieces from the trends caught my eye…
