We’ve got a big birthday in 2014 – yes, we’re going to be half a century old! To help us celebrate our 50th birthday, we’re making a special film all about you and your memories of Habitat. We’d like to hear your weird, wonderful or wacky tales.
Did you shop at the first Habitat store in 1964? Did you buy a chicken brick or a ‘continental quilt’ from store manager Pagan Taylor? Speaking of the duvet, did you have a ‘first’ with Habitat? Had you ever used a chicken brick before? Did you furnish your first flat? We’d love to hear from someone who bought one of our Graffiti sofas, for instance. Or, are you lucky enough to own a Daft Punk coffee table?
For a chance to appear on the film, we’re asking fans to come along to our Tottenham Court Road store in London on Thursday 14 November 2013, 2-8pm. Bring your favourite product – if it’s too big to bring in, a photo will be fine – and tell us all about what it means to you.
Don’t worry, no Oscar-winning performances needed (unless you want to!) we just want to hear why you love our products and what they mean to you. We will have a small camera team who will direct you through the process. You can also submit video entries online via YouTube and email. We want to hear from you!
