House of Hackney’s bold prints adorn a new collection of homewares for Anthropologie.
Words By Pearl Boyd
House of Hackney is known for its bold prints, spanning the iconic palm print, lots of large-scale florals and unusual designs featuring dinosaurs, landscapes and botanicals. The repertoire includes countless colourways and the House of Hackney look is a maximalist approach to pattern, with rooms featuring strong printed wallpaper, curtains and upholstery in a firm anti-minimalist style.
Founded by husband and wife team Frieda Gormley and Javvy M Role in 2010, House of Hackney has now grown to become a community of artists, designers, producers and collaborators from around the world. The flagship concept space of St Michaels in the City of London is its central hub, designed to be a melting pot of creativity and experimentation, both physically and virtually, visitors can immerse themselves in the iconic prints, colours and textures that House of Hackney are renowned for.
But now the brand has, for the first time, teamed up with Anthropologie to create an exclusive collection of homewares and accessories. It explores both brand’s love of bringing the outdoors, in, through adventurous prints, colours and fabrics, all with a luxury feel. This has culminated in a collection of lovingly crafted products designed to become ‘future heirlooms’.
This collection contains 48 pieces, ranging from a wrap roll priced at £8, to a large quilt at £328. It includes dinnerware and tabletop, spun in elements of animal print, ornate detailing and subtle iconic House of Hackney features. Giving traditional styles a bespoke modern twist, these pieces are perfect for creating the perfect laden dinner setting.
Boudoir accessories also run through the collection, cut from a mix of soft velvets, jacquard and silk. In rich jewel tones, find matching throws, quilts and bedding with quintessentially English countryside inspired floral prints. Extend the glamour into your bathroom with the range of towels, shower curtains, bath mats and more.
Frieda Gormley says: “At House of Hackney we believe that there are no rules when designing your home. We have always encourageed our customers to build homes where they can be themselves, and surround themselves with objects that bring them joy, and most importantly, grow with them, hopefully being passed down through generations to come. We can’t wait to see how Anthropologie’s customer receives the collection and how they weave House of Hackney throughout their homes.”
