In 1929 John Lewis’s founder, Spedan Lewis, had a vision of a ‘better way of doing business’ which rewarded employees for their contribution. He created the John Lewis Partnership, a company owned by its employees. Today all John Lewis employees, are called ‘Partners’ and receive a share of the profit made each year.
John Lewis has 44 stores in the UK including; 31 traditional department stores, 10 ‘John Lewis at Home’ stores and most recently, 2 small format stores in London Heathrow airport – Terminal 2 and London’s St Pancras train station.
I attended the launch of John Lewis in SM Makati last May and guess what caught my eye:
John Lewis Restoration & Croft (Arundel Marble) Collections
This John Lewis Restoration Collection of tableware is presented in a muted color palette inspired by natural pigments. The Restoration collection is about rediscovering traditional heritage styling and adding a fresh twist for contemporary living.
Full of refined heritage charm, it is crafted from classic porcelain in white with contrasting navy trim detail for a striking finish.
John Lewis also offers beautiful marble platters. The Croft Collection Arundel Marble is elegant and low maintenance.
