Pair the earthy grain of walnut with just about any of Habitat’s sofas
and lighting, and you’ve got yourself a very grown-up, contemporary look. Its unique quality and warm tone makes it unbelievably easy to place – it’s at home in a dining room as well as a hallway or lounge – and there’s something about the low-key glamour it provides that keeps us coming back. It looks beautiful as a dining table
or a retro-inspired coffee table like Vince, but even when picked out in the detail of a dressing table, wardrobe, or dressing trunk, as with the Tatsuma range’s glossy white finish, it really comes into its own. Walnut is a slightly less common timber and it’s perfectly suited to the tapered legs and slim profile of modern furniture and accessories. We love it and that’s why our in-house design team continue to use it for new pieces that will never go out of style.
Copper goes surprisingly well with its cousins brass and bronze, if you’re into mixing and matching your metals, which we definitely are. The belle of ball is Orrico - our hammered copper side table in two sizes – where instant, low-key glamour is what it’s all about. We’ve also got textured copper vases that look smashing as a group or on their own, and don’t miss our copper range of bathroom accessories
including soap dispenser, beaker, over the door hooks and bin - what a gorgeous and simple way to add pizzazz to a functional space. If you’re on a copper high, go for one of our ceiling lights or shades with copper detail like Marlowe or Garland – or set two copper baskets by the fireplace to hold firewood and gear. It’s a beautiful material that packs a style punch in every room it inhabits.
