Meet the Maker

Meet the Maker: Irving and daughters, Designers, London

Carolina Irving puts art into her craft – a famed designer known for her impressionistic use of colour and pattern, and for creating textiles pieces that are homely as well as high fashion. And for her next masterwork? She’s teamed up with her daughters Olympia and Ariadne, on a collection that’s made for days spent with family at home. Think handcrafted plates and candlesticks, as well as hand-decorated vases. A lust-worthy debut that proves keeping it in the family is often a genius idea. Discover exclusive pieces at our Christmas pop-up at Modern Society, Shoreditch.
