A friend and Mochatini reader, Sparrow recently sent me the link to Habitat. And I’m so glad she did because I found the perfect light fixture that I was looking for!!! I was on the hunt for a modern chandelier / ceiling light fixture for my house for a really long time. It was an like an irrational craving for something like this which started even before we decided to look for a house. What can I say?
Their Autumn/Fall collection had me drooling over the keyboard. Cool and Groovy is what a young furniture designer and restaurateur, Terence Conran, was trying to bring in while kicking heavy, dark furniture out.
He had created a revolutionary concept, offering to the ‘young moderns’ a democratic ideal of contemporary design at affordable prices. Shopping as entertainment, furniture and home accessories from all over the world, mixing the love of ones home with the joy of colour, food, art and all the good things in life – Habitat had invented the thing we now call Lifestyle.
Notice the gorgeous chandelier like light fixture? How can you not? Isn’t it gorgeous?? Its called Verona and its an absolute Manvi – “must have”! They have them in a couple of styles. The one I want (44 lights) is like 2300pounds, so it will have to wait for it. 🙁 But the single and 12 light ones are very affordable.
Habitat has stores all over the UK and France and affiliates in other European countries. Another store they will have to pull me out of when I’m in England next. Thanks Sparrow for the link and introducing Habitat to Mochatini readers.
