‘With Celine our aim was to create a velvet armchair for under £200 – with a cool, luxe aesthetic that would work in a variety of interior styles and room sizes,’ explains Eleanor Davies, Senior Buyer for Furniture & Upholstery at Habitat. ‘On its launch week alone, we’ve sold just over 100 of these designs – becoming one of our fastest selling armchairs.’

Will this be a best-selling Habitat armchair?

The new Celine armchair is available in navy blue, teal, pink and grey velvet. The statement design features a high-reclined back, lush velvet upholstery and skinny metal legs – perfect to add a touch of modern glam to any room. Other retailers offer similar designs with higher price tags. Who would have thought Habitat would be the best price?

Eleanor goes on to explain why the Celine holds such potential, ‘Velvet continues to be a huge trend in upholstery however it’s a material that is normally associated with more expensive designs. Soft pink and teal blue velvet are currently the most popular colour options.’

So what is about the new Celine that’s making it so popular? ‘Customers are loving the mix of the tailored velvet contours with strong, skinny black metal legs, which gives it a modern edge. It’s an excellent choice for small spaces. These characteristics allow light to flow around the design, creating a sense of space.’

‘Habitat is known for its build quality too. This has given our customers confidence to buy into lower price-point designs, as they know they are buying into a long-lasting design that is going to withstand everyday life. We’ve also made these chairs available for delivery within 3-5 days to cater for customers who want “design on demand”. This is proving particularly popular for those looking for quick room updates or starter furniture for new homes.’
