This is a place to call your own, somewhere to get creative and decorate your own way – to live surrounded by what you love. There are no rules. 

The house we’ve created is a sanctuary from the outside world, adorned with prints and colours inspired by the sublime palette of nature. It’s not filled with lots of ‘stuff’ – only things that have a purpose, created for both their beauty and their meaning. We call them ‘future heirlooms’: artistically designed pieces made in England by craftsmen specialising in generations-old trades. 

Everything else evokes a memory or a story. Photos, paintings… for these are the things that transform a house into a home.

In a Victorian townhouse in London Fields, Frieda Gormley and Javvy M Royle first dreamed up House of Hackney. Today, the husband-and-wife team has grown to a family of artists, designers, producers and collaborators.

On our doorstep is a special place called Hackney. A village-like borough of London with a melting pot of cultures and a colourful community of creatives that never fail to inspire us. It’s open and accepting of diversity – how life should be. In Hackney, anything is possible.

THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR HOUSE

THE KITCHEN

…is where it all began in 2011, when our founders Frieda and Javvy conjured up an interiors brand that would draw inspiration from nature, balancing exquisite design with eco-friendly production. Then as now, the kitchen table is where we nourish ourselves to create and innovate. 

THE BEDROOM

…is where dreaming takes place, where ideas for new designs and new ways of doing things are born.
 

THE BATHROOM

…is where we reconnect with ourselves using the healing properties of water and candlelight, surrounded by an oasis of plants.

THE LIVING ROOM

…is where we lose ourselves in the music, books, films and art that inspire us to create.

THE PLAYROOM

…is where we experiment and play with new concepts and creations.

THE GARDEN

…is where we go to decompress. Nature is our muse, and our designs are symbolic of the natural world’s plight and need to be safeguarded. So, we look after our garden for this generation and the next.

THE HOUSE TODAY

House of Hackney was founded on three guiding principles:

Creativity with purpose

Integrity in our actions

Compassion for our planet and people

 

We continue to build upon the House, creating unique and inspiring designs that will stand the test of time.

 

Our House is your house.

Welcome home.
