Boring is so boring. We adore Colville and are thrilled the be the first US retailer to carry their extraordinary home collection.
We are thrilled to be the first US retailer of Colville, the Milan-based label founded by Lucinda Chambers (former Fashion Director of British Vogue) and Molly Molloy (former Design Director at Marni). Colville - named after the west London terrace frequented by David Hockney in the 1970s – brings a kaleidoscope of color, pattern, texture, and craftsmanship to every piece that leaves their studio. Each item, whether a cozy wool blanket, a striped jute rug, a knitted throw, or shaggy pouf will exemplifies their love of color, pattern, and texture. And the brand really speaks to our own ethos focused on sustainability and craftsmanship. Colville works with craftspeople around the world to create their magical pieces.
From Wallpaper Magazine - " While a host of luxury brands expand their product selections according to strict commercially-approved categories, Colville operate more on instinct. ‘A Turkish girl I was working with said “I know a weaver who can make those shag rugs!”’ Molloy explains. This expert artisan has created soft 100 per cent organic styles, coloured using natural vegetal dyes in tones of mustard, lime and orange, and imagined in chubby and narrow stripes. Additionally, Colville’s polka dot woollen blankets were informed by an ancient felting technique practiced by Cistercian Monks, and created by the 1795-founded Italian mill Paoletti. Its jute floor mats, patterned with splice and dice stripes and arrowhead tessellations, were designed in Dhaka, Bangladesh in collaboration with Maison Bengal, a factory which trains women to develop traditional craft skill and encourage employment. ‘Collaboration is a huge part of Colville,’ Chambers adds. ‘We’re really interested in bringing craftsmanship into the 21st century.’ "
