On Tuesday M&I popped down to the Farmiloe building at Clerkenwell Design Week to have a look at some UK made furniture. Amongst the expected (A.S.A.P: a combination of four likeminded brands - Another Country, Scene, Assemblyroom and Pli) was a new surprise.
House of Hackney specialises in decorative, traditionally twisted home furnishings. A brief chat with Frieda (the brand's founder, alongside her husband) revealed that they have spent a great deal of time sourcing the best British factories with which to work. From the china makers of Stoke on Trent and Scottish furniture makers to the last eiderdown factory in England. They have evidently done their research.
Expect to hear more on all of the above in the near future, but for now, enjoy some images of their work.
