home: featured [ rattan at Habitat ]

Rattan, popular on and off throughout the last century, especially from the 1950s to 1980s in various styles and forms, is back in fashion and across the high street.

Habitat, known for its midcentury styling and strong designs from the key rattan era, is definitely the go to place for rattan and other materials that have a similar look – wicker, cane, bamboo, and other woods. Beds, shelving, chairs and more all embracing the current new trend.

So why is rattan different to other materials that look so similar? Rattan is a specific material, hence rattan furniture is crafted out of rattan only, but wicker furniture may be crafted out of different materials such as bamboo, straw and even rattan. Recently, synthetic materials are also being used for manufacturing wicker furniture.

It sits perfectly within either a clean minimal interior or equally amongst an eclectic bohemian styled room. It worked in the 1970s and still works now. Avoid mixing with chintzy florals – not to end up looking to 1980s.

home: trend [ neon lights ]

Lighting is a very important part of your home as we all know. Choosing various designs and styles creates individually in each room. This year sees more and more neon in stores.

The new type of neon we are seeing is not as it used to be with glass tubing and gas, nowadays it’s much more safe and durable with acrylic.

Of course the original neon lights are still available, and if you are looking for a vintage piece, or just want an experience then we recommend a trip to God’s Own Junkyard in London.
