Here at homify, we just love innovative new products, and get truly excited when we see the amazing work of our growing database of experts. Just when we thought we had seen it all, someone or something comes along and knocks our socks off. Given that this is an almost weekly occurrence, we wanted to showcase some of the latest products to surface on the platform, which will hopefully wow you too!

Fold it!

Folding Chair Fläpps – Criss Cross Red


At merely 20mm thick, (or thin!) is this amazing FLÄPPS folding chair. Brilliantly easy to store and use, you can have this wonderfully innovative seating option at the ready for when unexpected guests show up. Available in a myriad of material finishes, you can select how bold or muted you would like your chairs to be. The concept is so easy it hurts—how did someone not think of this sooner?!

Change it up

A three-seater couch caters, essentially, for three people. The issue is, all three people do not necessarily want to lie, sit or stretch out the same way. And so, the Facile sofa was born. This couch has the ability to be customised, and is, of course, comfortable. If there is no third person present, the empty space can be cleverly turned into a side table to rest drinks or magazines onto. The best thing is, not everyone needs to be doing the same thing. Read a book, watch tv or even curl up—whatever it is your heart desires, you can do!


The bane of apartment life for many is the fact that it is near impossible to grow simple things like herbs and small vegetables. Why? Because there is either no balcony, or, because the kitchen window gets blasted by morning sun, or alternatively, it's too dark. Thankfully, this dilemma has been well and truly sorted by the Bulbo system. You can have access to delicious greenery all year round, all in one stylish and environmentally friendly unit.


Curves are beautiful, whichever way you look at them. On an undulating landscape, a womanly figure, or even a piece of industrial design. Following a more organic style, the Dodò stool and the Nanà table, despite their minor differences, are designed to be used together. This set has a myriad of uses; from bar stools, to kitchen chairs or even a single bedroom feature, you can be sure it will look great no matter where it is placed.


The Isom side tables are a fun and quirky addition to any room. Whether or not you choose to have them in groups, or just as a single entity, you and your guests will be wowed by the amazing form of these tables. A clever design tip would be to place them near a window or glass door so that light can penetrate their translucent surface and bounce the colours off onto other areas. 

Stand up

What is this, you ask? We thought the same thing too when we first laid eyes on this particular product. A beautiful element, with a refined sculptural quality is wonderful enough to merely be just a decorative object. However, it is not. This sleek example of marble and steel is in fact, a simple umbrella stand! If you are all for innovative and minimalist design, then you shouldn't go without having this item in your home.
