House Of Hackney

While not my usual aesthetic, House of Hackney, a new east London based interiors company, has absolutely caught my eye.  Designed to break the rules of traditional English designs in order to appeal to a new generation, House of Hackney has been described as "Colefax and Fowler on acid." And, with wallpapers that depict sloths smoking hookahs and badgers drinking cocktails it's easy to see why.  What's your take on this cheeky approach to mad hatter style?
