Who we are:

Habitat is a furniture and home accessories retailer. Now part of the Sainsbury’s-Argos group, we’ve brought affordable, original design to British homes for over half a century.

Our purpose has always been the same: to imagine life as it should be. That’s why we travel the world to discover new ideas for our collections. It’s also why we design things that are cleverly crafted but never, ever simply the norm. We call it design with personality. And in recent years we’ve discovered innovative ways to make it more accessible than ever before, because we believe that good design shouldn’t be exclusive. It’s for everybody.

Alongside three London flagship stores and a thriving website with delivery all over the UK, you can now also buy Habitat through selected Argos and Sainsbury’s stores.
