Kelly’s classic and understated look and Gervasoni’s expertise for mixing unexpected materials and finishes with simple, characterful forms were fused to create striking furniture that puts the needs of the hotel user first – comfort, ease of use and an aesthetically pleasing design.
Kelly Hoppen MBE says: “Having travelled the world extensively for business and pleasure, I have experienced many different hotel interiors and I know what I want from their furniture. I wanted to create a collection for hospitality that was calm and luxurious, so that guests could really be themselves in a home away from home.
“For me, texture is absolutely everything, so working together with Gervasoni was an absolute dream. They have an incredible ability to mix textures, always achieving amazing results. My vision for the collection was to combine all sorts of different materials, particularly rough grains and lacquer.”
The beautiful collection of hotel furniture features runners of brushed exposed grainy timber that stand in stark contrast with simpler stained oak. Weaved rope and cord are also used in a simple monochrome palette as well as cross-legged bases that add a striking design element to the furniture range.
