The first piece of furniture that I bought myself was a teal blue velvet Habitat armchair when I moved into my first flat quite a few years ago now. Therefore, I am very excited to be receiving a new one and it was such fun deciding which one to go for! I have finally settled on the Wilmot armchair as I really like the Scandinavian design and the legs have a mid-centuy vibe that I love. The grey wool fabric is the perfect neutral that will work well with our Kilim rug and existing armchair.
I went to Habitat the other day and it felt like a brand new store with the arrival of a new season’s worth of collections – you know when you start looking around and you just want everything? So it wasn’t hard to put together how I will style up my new armchair with other Habitat bits…
1. Pole – natural oak floor lamp base 2. Wilmot – grey fabric armchair 3. Vince – oak side table 4. Wilmot – grey fabric footstool 5. Barington – green linen cushion 6. Coby – set of three rectangular water hyacinth baskets
I love the oak feet of the armchair so the lamp and side table blend perfectly, a blast of colour from the linen cushion, some texture from those gorgeous baskets (very handy too) and a good dose of pattern from my kilim rug. I’ve also added this beautiful House of Rym throw that reflects the Scandinavian design of the chair as well as the Bloomingville hanging planters as plants are a must.
Which Habitat armchair would you pick?
