FOR HULANICKI’S COLLECTION OF FIREPLACES FOR CHESNEY’S, SHE HAS RETURNED FOR HER INSPIRATION TO THE TWO STYLES THAT CHARACTERISED THE BIBA LOOK – ART NOUVEAU AND ART DECO
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 pay homage to the two 20th century
genres of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. She has re-interpreted them in the unique Hulanicki fashion to create
contemporary design classics.
“I was absolutely delighted to work with Chesney’s. I have always wanted to collaborate with them, as they are the
premiere fireplace company.” Barbara Hulanicki
