End of an era

So farewell Habitat. To people of my generation, you set new standards in furniture and kitchenware. In the 1970s, when I was setting up my first home, Habitat was the place to go to equip it. It was considered stylish, not too expensive and good value. Above all, it was a refreshing change from the boring, shoddy, over-priced crap that was previously available from department stores.

So some of us will remember Habitat fondly.
