The first details have emerged of Tesco's plans to extend its F&F fashion brand into homeware.

The retailer has drawn up new logos for the range, which will have a good, better, best hierarchy under F&F Home Basics, F&F Home and F&F Home Collection.

The Grocer has now learned that the labels, which cover a raft of homeware including kitchen lines and home furnishings, were registered at the Patent Office last month.

A spokesman for Tesco confirmed this week it was still "looking at opportunities" and that the range had yet to be finalised.

Tesco head of non-food Richard Jones outlined plans to move F&F which is 10 years old next year into the home aisle in March. It was initially thought the new range would launch this year.

Currently, its own-label homeware is sold under its Tesco standard brand and a premium Finest offer.

The expansion of F&F comes four years after Asda launched George into homeware and two years after Sainsbury's created Tu Home. Tesco's own-label expansion has until now focused on Finest, which was extended from food into homeware in 2002, followed shortly by clothing.

Although Tesco does not publicly break out sales ­figures for F&F, the brand is becoming a crucial part of its £1bn clothing business and a focus for investment.

F&F is also set to become a standalone clothing chain, with its first store due to open in Prague next month. If successful, F&F international chief executive Jason Tarry said it could roll out across the Czech Republic, then, ­potentially, worldwide.
