John Lewis: Spheres

I was looking over the latest fabric offerings at John Lewis, which I gather is a slightly more upscale Target in the U.K. (If Target sold fabric, that could be dangerous.) a department store on par with Macy’s or Nordstrom in the U.S., only with fabric (dreamy!). Spheres, from John Lewis’ exclusive in-house collection, is a 52% linen, 48% cotton blend, 62.5cm wide (24 inches — narrow!).

    I just laughed out loud at your impression of John Lewis. I can tell you that it’s a bit more akin to Nordstrom’s or Macy’s rather than Target but with a haberdashery section. However, in any case it is extremely dangerous to have such a haberdashery so accessible!

    I’m afraid I snorted with yourcomparisonof John Lewis who would be most annoyed to be compared to Target. Definitely middle/upperclass England!!

    Oh dear! Mea culpa! I fixed it. Maybe I’m confusing John Lewis with another chain …

    LOL over here too. They sell (gorgeous) baby dresses for £30-50, so definitely NOT a Target! It’s lovely to wander through the store, ogle the pretty fabrics, but I rarely plonk down my money to buy anything at the store.

    Yes, the John Lewis Partnership wouldn’t be flattered by such a comparison! Still, thanks for pointing out their beautiful fabric.

  6. That’s gorgeous fabric. I wish it was from Target! and that Target in Australia had a fabric department. All our department store fabric departments have closed and we only have Spotlight .
