Two fun facts to start with - did you know that Habitat is now part of the Sainsbury's group? Did you also know that it will now have mini stores within larger Sainsbury's supermarkets? No? Neither did I! As Habitat's products will now be more readily accessible to consumers, I was interested in what Creative Director Polly Dickens and her team had up their sleeve for Habitat SS17, so popped along to their press show at the Kings Road store this week.

Habitat SS17 has been grouped into 11 key trends. I've pictured my favourite product from each trend below:

SKINNY LINEA

  Tingo Large Shelf, £1200. From L-R: Strake vase, £25. Cosworth vase, £25. Mack vase, £50. Olaph vase, £25.

Fine black outlines are key in this collection. This quirky, jagged, slopey shelving unit I think will be the biggest talking point in relation to Habitat SS17.

URBAN JUNGLE

  Jambi, from £75-£175.

Jambi, from £75-£175.

This hot pink and red woven outdoor chair was my favourite piece out of everything, as the colours work together so well. I'd buy these tropical items if I had an outside balcony within a city flat.

HIGH ST LUXE

  Apex lamp, £60. Shelby half sphere lamp, £130

Apex lamp, £60. Shelby half sphere lamp, £130

Current popular, desired materials make up High Street Luxe. Leather sofas and retro-style marble lamps are combined together in this collection.

NEW BLUE

  Dylan lamp base, £95. Drum silk shade, £55.

Dylan lamp base, £95. Drum silk shade, £55.

It's an absolute fact that blue is going to be THE colour for SS17 in interiors. I've already decided that I'm going to have a few blue updates in my home next year. Habitat have devised their own blue, which is a very intense cobalt blue that can mainly be found on their ceramics and cushions, but I liked it best on this lampshade.

Retro Revival & RATTAN:

  Koba Sofa, £450. Cushions from £45.

Koba Sofa, £450. Cushions from £45.

Like the M&S press show I visited, there is a real nod back to the late 60's/70's in interiors next year. Where as M&S are going more William Morris prints, Habitat are doing pop colours with a Biba vibe. The retro cushions above are on one of the new circular rattan chairs, which Polly revealed are made by one craftsman over several days in Indonesia.

ARTISTIC FLAIR

  Oakla vase, £30. Rothco vase, £30.

Oakla vase, £30. Rothco vase, £30.

Influenced by the Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, and by 'controlled doodling', expect brush strokes and curvy abstract shapes on ceramics and textiles.

IPAD ARTISTRY

  Corocco plates, from £10.

Corocco plates, from £10.

Inspired by the i-pad paintings by David Hockney using the Brushes app, you'll find deck chairs and melamine plates in the vivid colours matching the Urban Jungle and New Blue collections.

HAND OF THE MAKER

  Perdita - from £8.

Perdita - from £8.

100% handmade in small factories, table-wear comes in a teal blue glaze; black, white and 'new blue'; plus this dalmatian style splatter.

KNITS

  Throws, from £60.

Throws, from £60.

The key words for SS17 Habitat knits were 'lightweight' and 'comfy'. Woven out of cotton, they come in vivid reds, greens and yellows.

RUGS

  Esbly, £450.

Esbly, £450.

Patterns of grids and triangles, in monochrome, yellows, reds and oranges make up the rugs for SS17.
