Another commercial project being adorned with Blackpop’s arresting style, is leading contemporary design company Ligne Roset who is using the decadent Duprez for a cloakroom area and Matches Fashions also chose a Blackpop piece, Chapelle Sunset, for their Notting Hill shop in London.
Hall is also open to one off commissions and working with interior designers, in fact quite recently a residential client had Geo Earth made into a large wall mural. Another domestic project has seen a bedroom and living room decorated in the same design with an additional chair upholstered in a fabric version of the Duprez Vintage Violet print too.
‘This was the first time we had a fabric output with our designs,’ says Hall. ‘Our client was thrilled with the results and so were we. To celebrate we had a velvet cushion made up for her!’
The bespoke element is clearly the part which really excites Hall and one of her main aims is to keep a very personal practice.
‘A lot of stuff is done online, but the bespoke aspect by its very nature has a personal approach and response and that really suits us,’ she explains. ‘It means focusing on the actual process of design rather than the admin and day to day running of a business!’
Luckily both aspects are something that Hall seems to excel at, with samples currently in production for more upholstery fabrics in velvets, cottons and linens which are looking set to go into retail this year and plans are afoot for all designs to be offered in tile form so Blackpop can begin to go underfoot as well as on walls.
From the humble beginnings of an anarchic DIY heart in the Midlands, Blackpop are bringing a little bit of punk-rock to the luxury interior design world and to rather exciting and stylish effect.
