This spring, visitors to Habitat‘s Kings Road store in London can expect to be dazzled by a vibrant exhibition of new woven work by five graduates from Central Saint Martins.

Open until the 28th April, the Habitat Platform exhibition includes the work of Philippa Thorne of Gone Rural, Nadia-Anne Ricketts, Jane Harper, Lucie Libotte and Coralie Bonnet.
