home: trend [ natural lampshades ]
With the Winter nights upon us, it’s now the time of year to focus on lights in the home. Create cosy spaces for the evening and bright work spaces throughout the day. A big trend this year has has been rattan and woven lampshades and this is not going away through into 2019.
This style gives a relaxed feel to a room and will work with most decor. The natural fibres and woven form soften a space and allow for any colour backdrop.
Wood accents are also big for next year, so this is a great way of introducing this through lighting.

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.
