Here at Habitat we give them same amount of consideration and design focus to a £30 desk lamp as we do to a £3,000 sofa. All our products are designed by us, in our London-based HQ, and made exclusively for us, by our manufacturers based all around the world. If it’s a Habitat product, it’s a Habitat design. So, finding ourselves at the start of a new year when we’re still feeling the pinch after Christmas whilst being in possession of a pretty epic 2017 ‘to do’ list, we’re here to help you navigate Champagne tastes on a lemonade budget. We’re calling them Style Steals and here is our pick of the pack.
KOTA SOFA BED: £395
Lordy, a sofa AND a bed for under 400 quid. Yes please. And, of course it looks just gorgeous – a grey pillow of a thing just dying to be the master stroke in the overhaul of your living room.
JESSIE BOOKCASE: £75
We’ve extolled the virtues of Jessie many times before but, honestly, it’s so clever. Acres of space to store books and ornaments aplenty, tiny footprint, statement-making. It’s not the cheapest bookcase you’ll find but this kind of design coupled with this kind of price? You’d be mad not to.
RAFI FLOOR LAMP: £30
Elegant and timeless. Tick both of these attributes when choosing something for your home and you’re in for years of enjoyment. Get both of these for £30 and you’re fully entitled to give a smug grin every time it’s admired.
ORRICO SIDE TABLE: £130
This is your hero piece. Put it beside your sofa. Use it as a bedside table. Hell, use it as an occasional table in your bathroom to rest your paperback on whilst you bathe. Wherever you use this piece it’s a jewel of a game changer. One piece that will seriously up the style ante in your home. All for £130.
Seriously, 4 bowls, 4 dinner plates, 4 side plates, for £30. Oh and did we mention that they’re hand painted?
