Habitat A/W 2016

Last week when it actually felt a bit summery every now and then, and I was full of the joys of spring, I popped along to the Habitat A/W16 press show, for a nosey at what's going to be on offer come September. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at how many pieces really caught my eye.

Loads of lovely ceramics, glassware and tableware at extremely reasonable prices, sat alongside some beautiful lighting, gorgeous textiles and furniture.

A heavy Jackson Pollock influence runs through some of the ceramic and textile designs which is good by me.

Here's my pick of the best in show...

The aforementioned Odela Collection. The more I look at it, the more I like it. I think the Trophy Objet on the left is my favourite piece. These are not normally my colours (I especially don't do red, and I'm just coming 'round to orange), but for these, I'm making an exception, and I love all three pieces. A lot.

The Misty chair and footstool is another standout, not only for the fabulous green hue, but the lovely retro shape. It will also be available in the houndstooth print pictured up top, and a lovely teal and grey.

There are so many great ceramics, it's hard to pick a favourite, so here's a selection to whet your appetite...

I'm a sucker for a nice serving board - be it marble or wood, so a combination of both is an absolute winner for me and I love these additions to the Agra collection. In fact if they weren't so heavy (as you'd expect!), I'd have purchased one of the existing shapes on the spot. But you know, that's what online shopping is for...

Last, but certainly not least, is the Isabel daybed, in sumptuous orange velvet (told you I was warming to orange), that I can picture in so many different spots in my house - my imagination has gone into overdrive. I just love her curves!

Currently available in store are so many fabulous large baskets, ceramics and planters that I thought it was worth a mention. Some really great kitchen accessories too, not to mention the Avia and Harpa rattan furniture that I adore. The Flagship Kings Road store is definitely worth a visit, especially if you, like I hadn't, been for a while - I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised.
