A little ways back we did a super spesch interview with Lucy Glad-Wright and Jo Harris, the sisters behind Hunting for George and now we bring you the new Siesta bedding collection that is every bit as amazing as the last (ok…maybe a tad more amazing if you can believe it). Not only do we bring you a little chat and images of the new range, we also bring you an incredible giveaway that the girls have been kind enough to offer to one of you Show + Tellers.
Check out our chat, pics and giveaway details below.
Wowza, how exciting about your new collaborations for your famous wall clocks? Tell us about how this idea came about and what we can expect?
We are so excited about this latest collaboration. We are huge fans of all the artists involved and were really inspired to showcase all the amazing creative talent that exists in and around Melbourne. A list of 13 creatives were each given their own blank Hunting for George clock and the the freedom to do whatever you wished to it. They look amazing and we’ll be showing these limited edition time machines off in November, with each one available to buy online – with the majority of sales going direct to the artist.
Your bedding collections are incredible. Tell is your inspiration behind this new range?
Thank you! Colour is very important to us and was our primary focus for this collection. We wanted to create a harmonious colour palette that would bring about a beautiful sense of calm and relaxation. We like to keep notes on colour wherever we come across them and then put them all together to see what works. We often find ourselves planning for a few seasons at once if we have an abundance of ideas and that really helps us to understand our design direction and how our pieces can be styled together from season to season.
What’s up next for Hunting For George? What can we expect for 2015?
We have so many plans for next year that we often find ourselves having to take a step back and say… Seriously? But as we’ve now spent 4 years in business, we’re keen to take a few more risks and expand ourselves further. Expect to see a lot more Hunting for George designs next year, as well as an incredible growing team of collaborating designers and suppliers.
Any special gift tips to prepare for Christmas?
