As with every issue of Elle Decoration, we ensure to bring you the freshest ideas in design and interiors.

And with April’s issue, it’s no different. This month, we’re getting back to basics with a focus on all things green and environmentally aware. There is no shortage of desirable items to add to your home, but here are the things that we might be adding to our shopping baskets sooner, rather than later. Here are the wishlist items from our April issue.

Rich Mnisi’s Nwa-Mulamula Chaise

Are you surprised that this is top of the list? The debut furniture range from the incredible Rich Mnisi stole hearts from the moment it was shown at Southern Guild’s ExtraOrdinary in February. The range, titled Nwa-Mulamula, after his late great-grand mother, features this chaise as well as a side table and we can’t decide if we want to lounge on it or preserve it as a piece of art.

Coral and Hive’s Karakul Rugs

These textured, chunky rugs from Coral and Hive are handwoven using traditional techniques, and made from long natural fibres. They come in a range of natural, earthy colours and are the perfect addition to any living space.

Mark Alexander’s Epoque Collection

Do we need to remind you that velvet is the ultimate luxe fabric to work into your space immediately? Well, in case you need reminding, Mark Alexander’s latest Epoque collection is a sumptuous mix of rich colour, as well as texture.

Ini Archibong’s Sé Collection

It is no secret that we are all kinds of obsessed with Ini Archibong and everything he does, but his latest collection for European furniture brand, Sé, is something else. Collection IV represents a celestial bind between earth and heaven.

Ninevites’ Imitha rugs

Ninevites’ designer Nkuli Mlangeni teamed up Spanish design company Studio Carreras to bring her incredible Imitha collection to life. The range, which includes handwoven rugs and mohair throws, is both comforting and outrageously chic.
