Hunting for George transform converted warehouse apartment for the launch of their newest collection 'Welcome Home'...

 

Shot on location in a converted Gas Regulating House in North Melbourne, Hunting for George's latest collection 'Welcome Home' is every bit as stunning as the apartment itself!

New textiles from Hunting for George feature new materials including linen, chambray, quilting, wool and leather together with their signature pure cotton. There are many stand out pieces in the collection so it’s hard to pick favourites, but some of my picks are the Polar Quilt Cover Set with diagonal quilting. The Sunday Wool Blanket made from 100% wool and the luxurious Leo Navy Leather Cushion, a dreamy deep blue leather cushion with detailed piping.

The newbies in linen include Quilt Cover Sets, Standard and Euro Pillowcases and Tableware in classic White and Charcoal. And their newest must haves are the Leather cushion accessories which are available in Tan and Navy.

The Oliver Coffee Table makes its debut as the latest addition in the Hunting for George Oliver furniture range, all Australian made and available in soft white and matte black.

Complementing the all new linen tableware, sees the launch of Hunting for George Ceramics, handmade in Melbourne and available in 3 different products: Planter, Tumbler and Espresso Cup Set.

“We fell in love with this apartment. It’s height, grandeur and age were so welcoming. The open floor plan allowed us the freedom to transform the entire home and tell a comprehensive story. We have a extensive range of products for all areas of the home and we really wanted to showcase this.” Lucy Glade-Wright, Brand Director

 

Hunting for George 'Collector' Art Series...

 

Hunting for George has welcomes their latest collection of Art Prints, the ‘Collector’ series. The collection is an exploration in painting, collage and illustration, together with a curated collection of original photography. The collection includes 24 new Art Prints across a range of styles and sizes.

To partner the launch of these new Art Prints, Hunting for George also launches its custom made frames designed to fit their entire collection. Australian made, these frames are sold pre-assembled with a multi-fit system to hang both portrait or landscape.

This launch is the first of many from Hunting for George for 2017 and includes a sneak peek of new products destined to join the Hunting for George collection including Australian made ceramics, bed linen, furniture and leather accessories.

“The energy of this collection is reflective of the environment in which it was created. Experimental and instinctive, we explored a range of mediums and techniques before refining these concepts on the computer. The creative process was incredibly refreshing. We allowed ourselves the freedom to step away and develop instinctively, and this unhurried approach creates a beautiful sense of calm in each piece.” Says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George Brand Director.

We wanted to provide a complete offering to our customers and remove the additional (and often frustrating) step of finding a frame to fit your artwork. Now our customers can put their art prints straight on the wall with no lag time, and the multi-hang system we developed means that each frame is not limited in its orientation, allowing our customers more freedom in how they choose to use their frame in the future.” Says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George Brand Director.

 

Hunting for George ‘Clifton’ Summer Homeware Collection...

 

The latest homewares collection from Hunting for George encapsulates all that we love about Summer. It’s relaxed, nostalgic and has a comforting simplicity. The collection titled Clifton is named after a sleepy coastal town in Tasmania where Hunting for George co-founders and sisters spent their childhood summers. And growing up in Tasmania myself I have an extra soft spot for this collection.

The collection includes new bedlinen, quilt sets, sheet sets, euro pillowslips, cushions, floor cushions, tea towels and prints. Summer means entertaining and entertaining means getting stuck with drying duty when you’d rather be falling into a post-feast slumber. You’ll be looking fine whilst doing the time with the double trouble Tea Towel combo: Cove and Village tea towel sets are 100% cotton, machine washable and super convenient for flicking unsuspecting passers-by.

They have also welcomed the Lounger Floor Cushion, made from indoor/outdoor friendly canvas, it is the perfect addition this summer. The Clifton Quilt Set is the everyday cool customer with an enigmatic smile, understated, super chill and always there when you need him. The Bobby Quilt Set is the extrovert of the bunch, offbeat and whimsical - moving sideways, never straight because no one likes to be predictable.  The Miami Quilt Set is the optimistic cheerleader, always upbeat and with its volume turned up. 

“I wanted this collection to represent everything we love about Summer holidays. Our fondest memories are from our holiday’s spent at Clifton Beach. Extremely understated and surrounded by nature. I wanted our designs to reflect the simplicity and calm energy of that time.” Lucy Glade-Wright, co-founder.

“My favourite design is the hero of the collection, the Clifton Quilt Set. It has a quiet energy and a casual nature which is everything that a summer holiday should be.”

The Hunting Collective...

This year Hunting for George collaborated with 12 different creatives from a variety of mediums to create the much talked about Hunting Collective. Including fine art, illustration, collage, street art, design, craft and photography, each artist was given a blank Hunting for George clock and an open brief. The result is an incredible array of 12 limited edition time machines that encapsulate each individual artists signature style. 

As every creative involved is so unique, Hunting for George decided not to put a price on the finished clocks but to instead let the buyers to decide. Hunting for George are hosting a launch party on Thursday November 20 and the finished clocks will be on show and then the online auction will kick start to allow everyone, not just Melbourne folk, to secure a one off clock. 

Hunting for George is a proud supporter of local talent and the majority of sales from each clock goes back to the artist. With every clock sold they are also supporting local business, Waverly Industries; a not for profit organisation that provides support and employment for people with disabilities. Their incredible team of employees now manufacture all Hunting for George clocks- and Hunting for George say " they do a much better job than we ever did'.
