Emma J Shipley’s furniture range has launched an exclusive three month pop-up at Harrods, the London luxury department store. The collection incorporates wooden frame chairs and armchairs bound by fabrics that feature Shipley’s most iconic designs.
Emma J Shipley is an award-winning graphic artist and designer specialising in fine drawing, luxury scarves and home textiles; taking inspiration from patterns in nature, with a surreal and magical twist. Emma painstakingly draws each design by hand in pencil, fusing highly skilled draftsmanship with a subversive imagination; capturing nature’s unpredictable beauty.
Emma J Shipley’s Animalia furniture, fabric and wallpaper collection was created in collaboration with Clarke & Clarke. The brand new chair range is currently selling exclusively in Harrods and is displayed in a pop-up installation on the third floor.
As part of London Craft Week 2018 and to celebrate the furniture pop-up installation at Harrods, the designer is taking part in an exciting in-store event. At Harrods Fabric Library on Saturday 12th May Emma will be meeting customers, signing prints of her stunning illustrations and talking about the inspirations behind the Animalia collection.
“Following on from the success of our Animalia fabric and wallpaper collection, we’ve teamed up with interior experts Clarke & Clarke again to bring you a new collection of luxurious and unique upholstered furniture. Animalia favourites Amazon, Audubon and Kruger are among the fabric designs chosen to bound our selection of sumptuous wooden frame chairs and armchairs,” said Emma J Shipley.
The Antoinette, Langley, Dalston and Soho chairs come in a range of Animalia prints and are guaranteed to add a sophisticated injection of exoticism into your home.
“The full range of Animalia wallpaper and fabric is also available to order from Harrods, where you can browse the collection in store on floor 3. As well as the available upholstered furniture we’ve launched, all of our fabrics are suitable to be used for upholstering of your own – whether that’s chairs, sofas, lamp shades and beyond…” added Emma J Shipley.
