Hunting for George have joined forces with Melbourne designer Grazia Materia for their latest furniture collaboration. The collaboration has brought together an edit of textural furniture pieces and accessories for the home.
April 1st, 2016
Jo Harris, Hunting for George co-founder says that they were thrilled to collaborate with Grazia. “We’ve known each other for a few years now and we’ve always admired Grazia’s exceptional knowledge of materials and craftsmanship,” she explains. “Her devotion to Australian made is something that we also wanted to support. We relish the opportunity to make products locally when we can.”
The collection includes Rollo, a cylindrical solid ottoman available in a range of wool and leather upholstery. The ottomans, made in Melbourne, are constructed from a timber frame, covered with a green star rated commercial grade foam and then upholstered in either a quality wool upholstery or tan aniline leather.
The collaboration also introduces wool upholstery to the classic Hunting for George Oliver bed. “It was important to us that we maintain the uncomplicated nature of our design and we felt that this fabric would be able to complement a range of different colours and textures in the bedroom,” shares Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George co-founder.
