House of Holland x Habitat unveiled
It shouldn't come as a surprise that British designer Henry Holland, who is known for his colourful, patterned pieces, is a fan of the cult film "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas," based on Hunter S Thompson’s iconic, trippy 1970's novel.
When Henry Holland teamed up with Habitat, the British furniture and lifestyle company, to launch his first interiors collection, it was to the surreal interiors in "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas" he looked for inspiration.
"The collection for Habitat is a hallucinatory mix of 1970’s pattern and texture,” comments Holland. “Inspired by Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, we’ve incorporated a mix of trippy florals, animal prints and bright fluorescent colour onto a mix of materials for a collection that brings together the strengths of both brands. I’ve wanted to design an interiors collection for years and translating ideas for a new industry has been such a rewarding process, looking at new techniques and materials which we haven’t used before."
The collection features a series of prints from House of Holland's SS16 season, translated across a range of prints and upholstery. Among the pieces are cushions featuring exotic leaf prints, hand-embroidered bugs and hot neon piping. This is the first time Habitat has digitally printed onto velvet fabric for a textural finish akin to the designs shown on the catwalk, the brand said. The collection also features Habitat's mid-century inspired Abel sofa, which has been updated with House of Holland's Paradise Leaf print.
The collection is available now from Habitat London flagship stores and online, with prices starting at £35.
