There's not much that Kelly Hoppen hasn't done when it comes to design, from homes, yachts and jets to commercial projects in several countries, including hotels, restaurants and offices. Then there is her home interiors range, as well as partnerships with various licensees to offer a staggering variety of fabrics, shutters, paints, scents, furniture, wallpaper, taps, prints and products on QVC UK.
Fittingly, to celebrate 40 sterling years as one of the industry's most highly-lauded interior designers, Hoppen has, in collaboration with Resource Decor, produced an exclusive furniture collection inspired by her life, travels, antiques and her own London home. The collection was in development with Resource Decor over the last year; Hoppen worked with its Studio of Innovation and Design in Vietnam to bring her designs to life.
"At Resource Decor, our focus is on connecting our clients around the world to the best in design," says Geoff Hawkes, chairman and CEO of Rochdale Spears Group and founder of Resource Decor. "Our collaboration with a designer as renowned, accomplished and admired as Kelly is an embodiment of our vision."
In this new collection of 100 pieces, the emphasis is on furniture with sumptuous velvets, rich leathers and linens. "I was able to let my imagination run free and design pieces that I had been dreaming about for years," says Hoppen. "I pictured exactly what each piece of furniture would look like and after some hard work and alongside a brilliant workshop and team, we created the collection."
