Brand Spotlight: House of Hackney

The History

In a London townhouse, husband and wife team Frieda Gormley and Javvy Royle were inspired to create House of Hackney.

Established in 2010, House of Hackney drew its ideas from nature, focusing on exquisite design and eco-friendly production. Founded on three guiding principles,

  •         Creativity with purpose
  •         Integrity in our actions
  •         Compassion for our planet and people

Based in Hackney, the founders drew on the diversity and originality of their local community. Allowing the colorful mixture of culture and atmosphere to become part of their DNA.  

Driven by a brave vision and new way of thinking, House of Hackney have torn up the interiors rule book with their prints and vibrant palettes.

House of Hackney – Today

House of Hackney continues to create and inspire, providing unique designs with beauty and meaning. And today, the business has grown to incorporate a whole family of artists, designers, producers and collaborators.

The brand is a powerful, reliable creator in the industry, inventing trends without being ‘trendy’ and crafting unique, artistic pieces, designed to last well beyond their season for many years after. Working in collaboration with some of the UK’s best and most talented manufacturers, designs are produced close to home without compromising on quality. 

Remaining true to its values, House of Hackney is inspirational in its efforts to support the environment – and they’ve pledged to become carbon negative by the end of 2022. This, alongside their stunning new collection of emulsion paint and their Gardens of Tomorrow initiative, demonstrates time and again that their messaging isn’t simply an aesthetic crutch, but the heart and soul of their work.

With features in Forbes and Architectural Digest, it’s clear that the brand is taking its range of eclectic furnishings, fabrics, and accessories to a much wider audience.
