Kelly Hoppen celebrates 40 years in business
Boh staff

British designer Kelly Hoppen is celebrating four decades in business with Retrospective, a 100-plus-piece collection released earlier this year with Resource Decor. Hoppen also celebrates her career in her newly released 10th book, a Rizzoli tome called House of Hoppen.

Of the collection, which debuted at High Point, Kelly says, “I was able to let my imagination run free and design pieces that I had been dreaming about for years. I pictured exactly what each piece of furniture would look like, and after some hard work and alongside a brilliant workshop and team, we created the collection. I am so happy with the end result–every single piece is a testament to timeless elegance.” Retrospective is available at ABC Carpet & Home in New York. 

In addition to numerous projects, what’s next for Hoppen? The designer, who was awarded an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 2009, will be a judge on the BBC show The Great Interior Design Challenge, airing early next year.
