Fabrics & Linens: House of Hackney in London

Christine Chang Hanway December 20, 2011

House of Hackney founders Frieda Gormley and Javvy M. Royle describe their subverted take on the traditional as "Colefax and Fowler on acid." Started in 2011, the duo's line of bed linens, wallpaper, and home furnishings features a distinctly British vibe; the products are largely made by traditional UK-based specialist factories (including the lampshade manufacturer for Downton Abbey). By converting their Victorian townhouse, located in Hackney (of course), into their showroom, they have created a seamless backdrop for their products.
