The new-season collections are in-store and online – we love it all, but everyone has their favourite. Team Habitat reveal their pick of the bunch.
Eleanor Davies, senior buyer for furniture
‘One of my favourite pieces this season is the Cora occasional table collection, designed by Matthew Long from our in-house design team. I love its interlocking design and delicate, lightweight look. They fit together perfectly as a trio or a pair, but the tables are available to buy individually, so you can create any mix of colour and size. I also love the elegant Fane bed, with its gentle, feminine shape that works perfectly alongside the bold lines of the Sura chairs.’
Cora large grey table; Cora small yellow table; Cora medium blue table; Cora small black table; Cora medium black table; Cora large black table. The Fane bed will be available in-store and online soon.
Rosalind Humphries, buyer for lighting
‘I love the random, tangled look of of the Flex pendant light. It’s a bold statement piece, but it has a relaxed, informal look that allows you to mix and match the bulbs you use – from retro filament bulbs to dramatic feature LEDs. It’s ideal above a dining table or as a dramatic feature in a hallway or stairwell. We had been inspired by our visits to tradeshows and exhibitions, where we kept seeing these fantastic displays with different bulbs suspended from industrial racking. We thought it would be fun to design a pendant light where the bulb was really celebrated. The Flex was born!’
The Flex pendant light features five height-adjustable coloured cables hung over a wooden grid structure. The bulbs are sold separately. Flex pendant light; Calex mirror cap halogen bulb; Calex decorative LED rustic bulb; Calex decorative halogen pyramid bulb; Calex decorative LED GLS bulb
