We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.

Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.

Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.

Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.

This woven style extends to pendants lights giving a very relaxed Boho feel. Lots of layered soft furnishings and natural colours. Go as bold or as subtle as you want.
