hunting for george x grazia & co

I love a good collaboration and two of my Melbourne favourites have worked together, Hunting for George have joined forces with Melbourne designer Grazia Materia of Grazia & Co for their latest furniture collaboration. The collaboration has brought together an edit of textural furniture pieces and accessories for the home.

“We 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. Her devotion to Australian made is something that we also wanted to support. We relish the opportunity to make products locally when we can.” says Jo Harris, Hunting for George co-founder.

The collection includes Rollo, a cylindrical solid ottoman available in a range of wool and leather upholstery.

“The ottomans 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. We hand make all the ottomans in Melbourne.” says Grazia Materia. “I love the versatility of the Rollo Ottoman. They are great as side tables as they have a firm top and they can also be useful as an additional seat at the dinner table or desk.” continues Grazia Materia.

The collaboration also introduces wool upholstery to the classic Hunting for George Oliver bed.

“We reached out to Grazia for advice on upholstering our Oliver bed. We looked through a range of fabrics and chose a wool fabric that is subtle with both warm and cool tones. 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.” says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George co-founder “It’s remarkable how much the upholstery changes the overall aesthetic of the Oliver bed. It adds an incredible tactile quality with the addition of fabric and the foam padded back also creates a new focal point and enticing resting area.” Continues Lucy Glade-Wright

Hunting for George is also proud to be an exclusive stockist of Grazia Materia’s signature homeware collection Grazia & Co, with beautiful Australian made pieces such as the Tommy Tray, Big Boy Floor Cushion and Aliya Bedside Table. Alongside the new collaboration pieces Hunting for George have also introduced Matte Black to the Oliver Side Table and Bench seat. The Oliver Bed has been updated for its 2016 release and all products are available online now at www.huntingforgeorge.com
