Over the past few months, the meaning of home has evolved. This space is now an office, entertainment centre, restaurant as well as a place of comfort and rest. Now in the middle of winter, we crave the comforts of a home with warm lighting, colourful throw cushions and welcoming sofas to brighten up our days. There’s no harm in adding some designer flair to this.  Below are a few covetable décor pieces we have been eyeing, enjoy.

Casa Milano’s Pillopipe Evo Green sofa

Designed by Paola Navone this one of the first modular sofas made using eco-sustainable materials and methods. You wouldn’t say by how good it looks but all the padding is made with 100% regenerated and biodegradable polyester fibre mixed with cork granules which are as soft as goose down because of their elasticity.

Tom Dixon’s Etch Web Canopy Pendant light

Available in brass and silver, the Etch Web pendant was created for the launch of the Audi A8 in Miami 2009. Described as voluminous, lightweight and transparent, the pendant’s metalwork creates shadows on surrounding surfaces, designed with the intent of it mimicking natural light filtered through a forest canopy.
