British designer Kelly Hoppen MBE spent the past year designing Retrospectivea collection of 100 furniture pieces – in collaboration with Resource Decor’s Studio of Innovation and Design in Vietnam. Resource Decor belongs to the Rochdale Spears Group, a global design, manufacturing and distribution group, which provides the retail market with design-led products.

Retrospective is contemporary, feminine and luxurious, largely defined by sumptuous and diverse material explorations. This includes the use of rich fabrics like velvets, leather and linens, as well as a variety of metal finishes such as rose gold, nickel, bronze, brass and stainless steel, merged with other materials like smoked glass, wood and coloured lacquers.

Hoppen, who has four decades of experience in the interior and product design industry, was given free play to design this collection. “I was able to let my imagination run free and design pieces that I had been dreaming about for years,” she says. The pieces strongly calls to mind classic Hoppen signatures – neutral palettes bearing coloured accents, the merging of contemporary and vintage detailing, and a East-meets-West design philosophy.

For example, the Sting Storage Cabinet bears dark neutral tones accented by metallic rose gold insets. The curved taupe lacquer structure of the cabinet is juxtaposed by a geometrical stainless steel base.

Hoppen sought to convey a sense of refined luxury throughout the collection with clean lines. The Vinci chair features strong lines defined by a rose gold metal frame and wooden arms that complement the soft fabric upholstery.

Each piece in this collection was designed to imbue rooms with depth, sensuality and timeless elegance, recalling Hoppen’s penchant for visually rich spatial textures.
