Q&A with House of Hackney Founders

Summer 2016

On Wednesday 6th July, following the House of Hackney x Annabel's Terrace Takeover, the East London design studio's founders Frieda Gormley and Javvy M. Royle took part in a Terrace Session. They were interviewed by Gaby Roslin and discussed style, interiors and the strength of Great British print, colour and texture.

In 2011 House of Hackney was founded around a kitchen table in a house in Hackney, London by husband-and-wife team Javvy M Royle and Frieda Gormley. Sharing a passion for interiors and a background in fashion and product design they decided to create what they had been searching for: in the great tradition of British print houses a brand which championed print, colour and texture, taking inspiration from the past but juxtaposing with prints and treatments for a modern statement. After a decade of minimalism the brand captured the zeitgeist and the imagination of a new generation.
