Habitus Loves… Comebacks

There are some designs that were just too good to let go. That’s why we’ve compiled 8 of our favourite design comebacks. 


Florence Broadhurst Rugs

Broadhurst prints have had a revival thanks to Signature Prints in
fabric and wallpapers, but this collaboration with Cadrys represents a
new and exciting adaptation.Where you can get it:Cadrys

The Fiat 500

title Designed by: FiatWhy we love it:An iconic design that deserved a modern interpretation, the Fiat Nuova 500 (brought back in 2007) is as much a cult item as the original.Where you can get it:Fiat

Navy 111 Chair

title Designed by:EmecoWhy we love it:The Navy chair had its greatest comeback when it fell from favour with the US Navy. Emeco decided to take the iconic design to the consumer.
