Linen, chambray, quilting, wool and leather feature in the new Hunting for George collection that was photographed recently inside a gorgeous 1887 heritage listed warehouse apartment in North Melbourne. “We fell in love with this apartment. Its height, grandeur and age were so welcoming. The open floor plan allowed us the freedom to transform the entire home and tell a comprehensive story. We have an extensive range of products for all areas of the home and we really wanted to showcase this,” says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George brand director.
As for the latest collection, its inspiration is largely drawn from fashion. “Our collections have evolved a lot over time and this latest collection is our most comprehensive and confident so far. We draw inspiration from imagery of people in the street, we seek to find different personalities, attitudes and lifestyles. From there we identify a lifestyle that we want to emulate which is when we begin to build colours, patterns and textures. This collection is effortlessly cool, understated and confident, with a healthy splash of ego,” says Lucy, who designed the entire range to be styled together.
As for favourites, Lucy cites the Chambray quilt cover set and Sunday wool blanket as standouts. “The chambray brings a beautiful baby blue denim look to the bedroom whilst the Sunday Blanket is made from 100 per cent wool and perfect for layering on those colder winter nights. We also adore our new Leo navy leather cushion as the dark navy tone changes the look and feel of the leather completely. It’s incredibly elegant and a real statement piece to have in the home.”
Made in Melbourne, the Oliver coffee table is a new addition to the Hunting for George furniture range. “We were motivated to design it as I was struggling to find a coffee table for my own home. We adapted the Oliver bench design to create a versatile and simplistic coffee table that would complement a variety of different spaces,” says Lucy.
