Habitus Loves… Softly Styled Interiors

Habitus Loves… Softly Styled Interiors

Styling by Bree Leech | Photography by Lisa Cohan

In many ways, atmosphere is what makes a house a home. Come home to the soft, soothing atmosphere of sumptuous textiles, subtle palettes, and sensuous forms.

Distinct Coffee Table from Urban Bureau

Distinct Coffee Table from Urban Bureau

Originally inspired by Japanese minimalism, the Distinct Coffee Table explores the creation of complex structures based on a single element. The minimalist construction creates a contrast to the richness of the travertine’s earthy textures. With the natural and diverse qualities of the sand-coloured limestone, it provides rawness and tangibility that highlight the architectural character of the furniture piece.

Lennon sofa from Project 82

A timeless classic, the Lennon looks right at home anywhere. Equally admirable in leather or fabric, it’s complemented by our unique leg design. Available in two seat depths (with two scatter cushions included in the deeper version), the Lennon has the style and the stamina to make it everyone’s favourite seat in the house.

Ruché bed from Domo

Designed by Inga Sempé the Ruché bed is lifted from the ground by a simple, fine structure supporting a comfortable sleep platform. The headboard and frame are dressed with a distinctive quilting. Alternately flattened by the stitches then set free, the fabric ‘curls’ in places, giving rise both to its unique appearance and to its name, Ruché.

Portal rug from Floor Story

This striking new design from 2LG x FLOOR_STORY is drawn from the next phase of the design duo’s house restoration. Capturing the new aesthetic now found throughout Jordan and Russell’s Victorian South East London home, Portal brings waves of contrasting colour for a look that’s unapologetically modern. Defined by a bold approach to simple, freeform shape and hand-knotted in Nepal, Portal is everything that’s great about modern rug design.

Cover 2 sofa from Domo

The name Cover is just as evocative of the concept as it is of the function. Its comfort and sensuality mask brazen simplicity of use. The Cover of Cover 2 can be removed in a matter of seconds, making maintenance almost a pleasure. Its Cover offers a ‘lighter’ version with a very different geometric design. Lines intersect effortlessly to create squares, lozenges and stripes. A contrast effect is possible, using coloured thread, if the customer wishes.


Grounded palette of paints from Dulux

Do you dream of living a simple, uncomplicated life? Adopting a less-is-more approach, Dulux’s Grounded palette of neutrals inspires us to move towards an existence filled with conscious, smart living choices, without compromising on the beauty, warmth and texture that remains essential to creating our happy place. Hues of white through to caramel unite with muted lavender, while a muted blush tint and terracotta accent add warmth and variety.
