Habitat launches two now store concepts

British design chain Habitat is to roll out two new store concepts and focus on international expansion. With these two moves, French-owned Habitat hopes to turn its back on two meagre decades.

Two new concepts and international expansion

The chain will launch Habitat Pure and Habitat Bedding in France: the former is focused on decorations, while the latter will focus on all items you might find in the bedroom.
