What Inspires Us

At House of Hackney, our wallpaper and fabric collections are influenced by the world around us – from nature and music to cinema, travel and of course the cultural melting pot that is London. We look to our local environs as well as further afield for ideas around colour palettes, interesting patterns and unusual textures. This subtle alchemy fuses unexpected references to create designs that are inspired by the past while remaining contemporary, unique and subversively beautiful. 

What inspires us

 

NATURE AS GODDESS

The natural world’s unparalleled palette and patterns – seen in the exquisite markings of a cheetah’s coat or mesmerising plant formations, for instance – take centre stage in our design process. There is no richer source of inspiration than the earth’s flora and fauna. Not only do these patterns look amazing in the interior, we use their symbolism to raise awareness of environmental issues and what we can all do to give back.

LONDON LOVE

London is our playground. From its rich architectural and textile histories to its iconic subcultures, musicians and artists past and present, we pour the creative energy of this wonderful city into our collections. At the heart of this is Hackney – vibrant, multicultural and energetic: a community as diverse and creative as they come.  

LODDIGES

Loddiges, the world-renowned 19th century nursery garden and hot house which once stood near Mare Street – where Hackney Town Hall is now – has proven to be a longstanding source of fascination for House of Hackney and inspired the bestselling ‘Palmeral’ print. Frieda and Javvy’s love of botanicals and their quest to bring a sense of the outdoors into the interior is a theme that is intrinsic to many of the brand’s most popular collections. 

 WILLIAM MORRIS

William Morris was of major influence when Frieda and Javvy set about founding House of Hackney, not only for his refreshing non-conformist approach to design (like us he was a bit of an interiors punk and rebelled against traditional aesthetics) but also because of our shared values. His principle of coupling beautiful design with a social conscience was key in the creation of our own brand and we are privileged to have been allowed to access his spectacular archive, bringing his works to a new audience.

THE GREAT DECORATORS

Sharing our sentiment for following your own personal taste and decorating to please yourself, the bold and visionary female decorators from the 1870s to the 1950s, including Dorothy Draper, Madeleine Castaing, Sister Parish and Elsie de Wolfe, inspire us in their eschewing of traditional design rules to create unusual spaces of utter beauty.
