Chesney's - Hulanicki Art Nouveau
THE HULANICKI ART NOUVEAU BY BARBARA HULANICKI
The Hulanicki Art Nouveau surround is carved in Statuary marble to allow the carver to work in the material best suited to capture in crisp detail the sinuous floral carving that characterises this delicate fireplace.
It is shown with black slate hearth and slips and the Cadogan fire basket in steel.Barbara Hulanicki is best known as the founder of Biba, the iconic fashion store which opened in London in 1964 and went on to become one of the most popular and influential fashion brands of the decade. Although Biba stores were patronised by film and rock stars, Hulanicki’s mission was to democratise fashion and make the Biba style available to the wider public.Her collection of fireplaces for Chesney’s is founded on the same ethos and for her inspiration she has returned to the two styles that characterised the Biba look – Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Her fireplaces pay homage to these two 20th century genres but she has re-interpreted them in the unique Hulanicki fashion to create contemporary design classics. Chesney's is proud to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such an iconic and respected designer and is delighted to launch The Barbara Hulanicki Collection.
