HENRY HOLLAND UNVEILS TYPICALLY BOLD RANGE THREE MONTHS BEFORE INDEX
London designer Henry Holland has readied himself for his debut INDEX appearance with the launch of his second range with British furnishings giant Habitat.
Awash with bright colours, floral prints, frills and flare, the fashion-come-interiors guru has lived-up to his reputation with a vibrant blitz on bedroom and living room décor.
Using his recent catwalk inspiration of traveler communities from the Eastern Bloc as his reference point, the out-there designer has opted for deliberately clashing styles to bring his interior vision to life once again.
Speaking about the collection, he said: “I love the brazen mix of bold pattern used to express personality through their clothing and how a clash of materials and colour makes a bold personal statement. I wanted to capture this idea for the home.
“For Habitat we’ve translated technique and material to create an unexpected twist on the Bohemian. Floral embroidery is used on punchy gingham cushions - a hand-knit ‘net’ throw in lime overlays the pattern of our digitally printed Boho bedding in a homage to Noa Eshkol. The hand-carved Folklore rug – which takes five days to make - has 3D florals leaping out from the floor.
“We’ve also introduced our first ‘slogan’ cushion in a nod to House of Holland’s 10th birthday and completed the collection with the retro Misty armchair reimagined in a hot pink velvet with blue trim.
“We’ve designed all of these pieces to work as stand-alone statements or collectively together.”
Standing out in the stand-out collection are the hot pink velvet Misty armchair and footstool, given a radical new look with retro curves and contrasting blue velvet piping.
As mentioned by Henry, there’s also the reversible patchwork design of the Boho bedding collection, made in homage to the artist Noa Eshkol. Digitally printed onto a 100% cotton with a high 200 thread count, the designs florals and ginghams are sliced together on one side while a ditsy floral print in pink and yellow is on the reverse.
His 3D-looking Folklore rug, handmade in the renowned rug manufacturing district of Panipat in India, provides the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate your floor.
