Buongiorno

Welcome to Hopewood Interiors a luxury lifestyle brand inspired by the finest artisans and creative studios from across the globe. My name is Alana Patricks, and I am the Founder and Creative Director of the brand. I have always considered the foundation of living beautifully to be built upon timeless pieces that yield a sense of balance and refinement. Based on this premise, I have developed Hopewood, a brand comprised of curated collections including tableware and accessories. My bespoke pieces have been developed through close collaboration with a network of Italy's most remarkable craftspeople, celebrating my heritage which originated from the charming hillside town of Asolo, also known as The Pearl of the province of Treviso.

 Each creation is designed carefully with sophisticated proportions and bespoke materials intending to contribute to the art of living beautifully. With an ethos rooted in sourcing and collaborating with remarkable craftspeople, my  intention is to showcase Italy’s most remarkable workmanship specialising in rattan, raffia,  ceramics and glassware. I am thrilled to finally share my first release with you all, here are a few of my must have pieces from the drop!

This beautifully handwoven tray is created from the finest raffia, inspired by ancient techniques handed down over generations. The oval tray displays intricate floral medallions offset by a contrasting weave that will add a layer of texture with its natural hues. The tray's blend of style and functionality is perfect for displaying your favourite items, serving tea or an aperitif to guests. Available in either natural or blue.
