    We just did a fantastic event with Fred Lives Here (fredliveshere.com). Check out the Swan chair and Egg chair covered in Korla fabric. We are so excited to see these mid century classic reproductions ditch their orange felt and leather and don some party frocks. They looked incredible.

    Grey and Yellow. Grellow? Yey?
    There is something about Spring that makes me want to use our yellow prints in a room. It's like Daffodils popping up. Or eating Mangos for breakfast. This is a roomset created using our showroom function...and I think it would look fabulous with a yellow rug from The Rug Company

    Princess in Pocket Venus
    Yeons ago, when I was Jane Troughton,  before kids and marriage made me change my name and grow old, I had a business called Pocket Venus. We made beautiful dresses and were stocked at boutiques and department stores from Austique to Selfridges.  It has been great to see Kate Middleton (sorry, The Ducchess of Cambridge) wearing my designs - again...
  8. Double Decker Buses

    It's the eternal Korla challenge for Children's rooms: can it be fantastic for kids without being twee? A print they might learn something from, without really noticing? Unisex? Can a toddler and a 14 year old like the same thing? My two oldest are loving their alphabet bus room. Hope (2) has nailed the difference between a red and blue...
  9. Oooooh Cocktails

    Korla has launched. Baby #3 is nearly 6 months old. Ted tells me it's time to celebrate. Heels were donned, singapore mould was dusted off my clutch and we skipped off to so-cool so-secret so-delicious 28 Hong Kong St. It's secret, and hard to find, and very 'behind the curtain'. Well, with Curtains being our bread & butter, I couldn't...
