Following on from the successful Animalia (opens in new tab) collaboration between Clarke & Clarke and textile designer Emma J Shipley, the two are joining forces once more for a fabulously exotic range of furniture.
The fantastic upholstered pieces see designs taken from Shipley’s imaginative pencil drawings, many inspired by Victorian botanicalillustrations, scaled and coloured to create colourful, punchypatterns.
The new furniture range, exclusive to Harrods, is upholstered in Shipley’s most iconic designs; the Audubon, Kruger and Tigris.
Inspired bytrips to the Amazon, Africa and the Far East, the designs are scattered with curious beasts and imaginary animals in a maximalist jungle environment.
The range includes the 'Antoinette' chair, amodern interpretation of a classic French-style dining chair, with a carved wooden frame painted in Farrow & Ball ‘Railings’, the 'Soho' and 'Langley' occasional chairs, and the 'Dalston', a modern take on the classic wingback.
The Audubon Jungle design, pictured above on the Antoinette chair, features fantastical birds in flight, in rich azure blues, teals and turquoise, popping against a white cotton satin backdrop.
Meanwhile, the Kruger pattern, above, inspired by the African safari park, features half-imagined giraffes, palm trees and unicorn zebras.
A truly maximalist jungle statement, the Rousseau design features winding vines, amingo details, peacock feathers and colourful parrots, printed onto luxurious velvet in rich limes and jungle greens with highlights of pink and coral.
The Lemur design features the curious ring-tailed creature surrounded by palms and foliage.
Not for the faint hearted, the Soho Tigris chair features tigers with peacock tails prowling on the reverse of the chair.
Printed on rich velvet, the felines come to life in charcoal, flame orange and golden yellow.
Or how about the Amazon design in striking red,featuring jaguar faces and surrealist parrots?
The collection is available now, for a three month summer pop-up, onthe third floor at Harrod's.
