INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN …

Fresh out of launching his collection for Habitat, Luke explains the inspiration behind his design and highlights some of his favourite pieces:  “I wanted my collection with Habitat to feel playful, slightly surreal, and very romantic. Inspired partly by the circus, partly my love of mythology, I have reinterpreted several of my favourite motifs in new ways. Faces of imagined characters and long lost statues appear on lamps and fringed cushions, whilst emerald green and sky blue striped velvets adorn a classic Habitat armchair and sofa. I’ve been a fan of Habitat for many years and I treasure copies of the brand’s colourful catalogues from the 1960s and 1970s. It’s been a pleasure bringing my designs to life with such an iconic British company.”

AMYAS REVERSIBLE THROW

FAIRFAX BED LINEN SET

CIRCUS STRIPE YELLOW AND GREEN CUSHION

“I enjoyed playing around with the scale of my figurative drawings and mixing them with stripes. I liked the idea of making the face cut-out here quite abstract, almost like a window.”

VIPER TABLE LAMP WITH GREEN SHADE 

“Snakes are one of my favourite beasts to draw – they’re beautiful but mysterious and in countless myths and legends they take on magical, mythic forms. Naturally their shape lends itself nicely to that of a tall lamp, too.”
