Habitat Spring Summer Collection 2016 trends colour texture and pattern


On this dreary winter’s day the Habitat SS16 collection has me dreaming of travelling and exploring exciting sunny places – and you will too when you see these beauties. The pieces are a colourful clash between natural textures, global craftsmanship and industrial lines.

They have picked up on the trend of neon accents and contrasted it against sophisticated dusky pinks. Woven patterns and natural materials sit alongside concrete and powder coated steel.

The eclectic variety of the new range has a global, well travelled vibe with a twist of city cool. Individually, there are lots of different styles to suit your taste and home, and plenty of opportunity for some serious injections of colour!

Daborn Mattie Print Armchair


The watercolour colour blocks on this chair would brighten up any corner and is right on trend. I think it would make an especially good office lounge chair.

Galet Cement Stool


This stool is a simple way to bring industrial style into your home. Better still, it’s totally multifunctional and would work as a side table.

Sabenta Jug


The thin neon yellow line on the rim of this Scandi patterned jug gives it some pep.

Malo Walnut Shelving


Proving that geometrics aren’t going anywhere, this shelving is the perfect thing for showing off your prized possessions in style.

Riad Cushion


The neutral rust colour is lifted by pretty Spring pastels and little pops of bright colour, making this a perfect modern take on ethnic style.

Faceted Planter


Fun, super bright and edgy, what’s not to love about this oversized planter?

Avia Rattan Tall Chair


This modern update on the classic rattan garden chair is fit for royalty. I love the lines and curves which make it a beautiful statement piece. Made for curling up with a book and cup of tea!

Leri Pink and White Vase


This large vase is simple and striking, the colours are vibrant and perfect for freshening up a dark area.

Regency Pink Velvet Cushion


The pale dusty pink colour of this cushion works so well with brights and patterns- think of it as the new neutral. Velvet gives it a shimmering, luxe look.

Bulle Triple Cluster Pendant


These lights give off a gorgeous warm glow and the long drop makes a real statement. The edison bulb filaments totally tap into the industrial retro trend.

Pedley 3-Tier Modular Shelving


If you want to be bold with colour, this super practical modular shelving unit is for you.

Elzora Bowl with Handles


The natural glaze and clay of this bowl make it a really tactile piece ideal for serving lush fresh salads. It has a hand crafted feel to it, you’d never think it was from a large store like Habitat.

It’s nice to see an evolution of the Habitat style. These new items feel right on trend, balancing heritage and craftsmanship with bold design.

For an instant home facelift, I recommend grabbing some of the new cushions and vases. They are really affordable and will bring Spring into your home early!
