Habitus Loves: 5 design products for sunny days

Radiating a sunny way of living with a decidedly Mediterranean flavour, these pieces are all about life lived at a slower pace.

A poolside lounge to while away the days

Outdoor living

Ibiza’s stunning landscapes inspired Talenti’s new SALINAS COLLECTION. Designed by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, this seamless Italian masterpiece is defined by a lean form. The collection mirrors Ibiza’s beauty and allure through sofas, armchairs, and precious metal details, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor.


Mediterranean dreaming

Set sail on a formaggio journey with ALEX AND TRAHANAS, and the newly introduced VELA CHEESE KNIVES, designed by David Caon. Inspired by sailing, these sculptural olive wood and steel knives will elevate your table. Accompanied by the Corda cheese board, crafted in rich oak with a nautical rope detail, they’re both perfect for hosting.


A plush place to rest

Meet the LUVA MODULAR SOFA – equally cosy and functional. Designed in Porto, Portugal, by Gabriel Tan Studio, it draws inspiration from boxing gloves and traditional Japanese futons. This versatile piece, resembling a glove, features natural textiles and organic lines, and can transition into an open lounge posture.


Soft underfoot

Tongue & Groove’s special three-layer solid European oak floorboards make them super strong and stable. Now, with its innovative process the GRANDE and PICCOLO come in a new 2.9 metre length. This longer length dramatically exceeds the industry standard of 1.9 metres, allowing for bigger areas to be covered with fewer joins.


Delicate details

Merging art, design and fashion the SPEAR COLLECTION of jewellery by Şener Besim draws on Ottoman elegance, where power is symbolised through intricate geometry, echoing the splendour of ancient architecture.
