Kelly Hoppen in her London home

Renowned for both her interior work and eponymous furniture line, Kelly Hoppen is a designer to know

There’s a slick neutrality that’s central to Kelly Hoppen’s aesthetic. Whether the multi-hyphenate creative is adorning the interiors of her clients’ homes (a list that includes the likes of the Beckhams) or designing pieces for her celebrated furniture collection, Hoppen’s aesthetic is dictated by a combination of East-meets-West detailing, accents of taupe and a penchant for artfully curated objects that lend neutral spaces an appealing warmth.

In a nod to Hoppen’s impressive portfolio that spans multiple countries and disciplines, the designer was awarded an MBE for Services to Design that, while highly-deserved, didn’t stop her from continuing to extend her body of work — recently applying her skills to the interiors of a luxury cruise ship. Aside from her conceptual interior work, Hoppen’s eponymous furniture line is another reason for the designer’s impressive reputation. The pieces play into Hoppen’s signature look with their geometric, sculptural detailing, reflective touches and understated opulence, as well as the fact that they all fall into the same kind of modern monochromatic palette. They are pieces that manage to be universally appealing while still standing as statements in a space and exude Hoppen’s own refined style.

Luckily for us, the designer’s elegant furnishings have never been more accessible, with exclusive stockists Frobisher recently opening an Auckland showroom in Parnell, and delighting the local design cohort by carrying a range of Hoppen’s distinguished pieces.
