Well-known for its organic latex mattresses, Okooko by European Bedding has introduced bamboo bedsheets to its all-natural range. The Heveya sheets are made of 100 percent natural biodegradable bamboo fibre, an excellent eco-friendly choice. They’re also incredibly soft and luxurious, and the fibre wicks away moisture to keep you dry, cool and comfortable.
Psst … Special offer! EL readers can get a free set of bamboo sheets with the purchase of a Heveya natural organic latex mattress; just show this article to redeem. Valid April and May 2019.
If you love indulging in scented candles, you’ll be happy to hear that Diptyque has added two new creations to its repertoire: Lily and Narguile. These beauties are each very different and arrive with a twist – they can be enjoyed as a duo or separately. Lily recalls a huge bouquet of fresh-cut lilies, while Narguile combines hints of honey, tobacco leaves and spices. Grab them at Diptyque boutiques (IFC and Harbour City).
Flooring with Flourish
Luxury carpet maker Tai Ping has launched a new range called Flourish. Each piece utilises handknotted construction techniques complemented by vibrant colour tones and expressive compositions. Created by master artisans in Nepal, these made-to-order rugs are striking and use only the finest natural materials, primarily Tibetan wool and Chinese silk.
Tactile, woven pieces will continue to trend in home décor this year. Stay away from mass-produced items and head to TREE for its beautiful selection of handwoven baskets and trays that will add character and authenticity to any room.
TREE tip: Opt for handwoven décor in natural fibres like rattan, jute or abaca – grounding elements that connect your home with nature, and give it a beautifully tactile and layered finish.
