I always come back to Habitat. To the layman the brand appears seemingly dimmed from its halcyon days but in reality is shining steadfastly and in my opinion better than ever. The in-house design team is enviously talented, the collections just as striking as always and most importantly the prices better than ever.
The brand’s Autumn Winter collection is studded with beauties that are inspired by 1980’s pop-culture, modern day Africa and American mid-century. Here are a few of my favourite lighting, textiles and ceramics pieces from the new collection available in store from September.
Astrid Molecular bulb lights come in six bulbs £70 and nine bulbs £95 and they look even more stunning lit up.
Black and white stoneware in beautifully imperfect geometric patterns
Hallie Copper Lamp £80
Some seriously covetable patterned flat weave rugs from £65
The Banshee reeded glass low cabinet £895 works together a retro industrial aesthetic
