"...use the same designers now. What Habitat Sell Each Habitat is like a furniture showroom, showing some of the items they stock depending on the size the store. They normal range of display will be sofas, chairs, tables, free standing kitchen units, sideboards, shelving units, beds, wardrobes, bedside units and bathroom units.

*An insiders review of Habitat!*

AdvantagesI can help you save money!

DisadvantagesYou may hae to wait for an offer to come around....

"...some of you may know Habitat is owned by Ikano-the same company that owns Ikea. It was established in 1964 in London, and has now become an international brand with stores all over the UK and Europe, and now has franchised branches in places such as Dubai, Thailand and Turkey to name a few. It focuses on beautiful and stylish products, and on the whole, in my opinion succeeds in this. The main objection most people will have is the price. Habitat ..." Read review

Habitually bad, HabiTAT

Advantagescity centre equivalent of IKEA but classier and more durable

DisadvantagesComplaints system is dreadful, customer service is poor

"...a home-improvement addict. I love Habitat as a rule. It is everything right about the world in what it sells, it is the staff and sales system that fail it.

AdvantagesFunky & stylish

DisadvantagesCan be expensive

"Habitat is really one of a kind - a national chain store selling contemporary home furnishings. I say national, but the stores can be few & far between, & you may have to travel a little way to find one. We used to have a branch in my hometown of Hull many years ago, but by the time I reached adulthood & was in the market for some modern home funishings, the store had gone. It's becoming increasingly evident that no-one wants anything decent in my ..." Read review

Modern and stylish - better quality than others

Advantagesgood design; modern and stylish

Disadvantagesnot enough stores, a bit too expensive for everyone

"Habitat stores offer a wide range of modern household items - nothing about their design is cluttered or fussy. There are both modern classics and things which are more daring. It's also a good place to get gifts for people - they even offer food items such as pasta and olive oil in presentation bottles. Their items are well priced (in the mid range) and they have plenty of options for smaller houses. Somewhere like Heals, for instance, has furniture ..." Read review
