Disconnect to reconnect with yourself

Three pillows in different patterns and muted colours, shown in a sofa of natural rattan in a living room.

Disconnect to reconnect with yourself

Go on, forget about your phone for an hour (or two!) and tune in to your senses. Here are the materials and items that not only look good but feel good to touch and use.

Explore the pleasure of natural materials

In constantly digital times, embracing the physical is essential to our well-being. Bringing more tactile surfaces into the home such as seagrass, cotton, and wood, is an easy way to engage and lift your senses. They’re nice to touch and more sustainable than many other materials. Why not relax your bare feet on a jute rug and see how that feels?

Above all, it feels good to touch

The softness of the bedding, the slightly coarser structure in the pillow on the sofa... feel it in your fingertips and on your skin. From hard-wearing ramie to densely woven cotton, these are textiles to surround yourself with, not just for the rational needs, but also for the emotional needs to unwind.
