Interior designer Ginny Macdonald has joined forces with Lulu and Georgia to debut its first furniture collection, a mix of tailored and statement pieces inspired by Macdonald’s English heritage. Here, Macdonald shares the story behind the line. luluandgeorgia.com
What inspired the collection? I’ve worked with the company’s founder, Sara Sugarman, for years now—most recently on her new home in Los Angeles, for which we designed two sofas and her bed. Once they were installed, we knew we wanted to do something bigger.
Describe the look. Timeless, not one particular style. Something you’d see in a Victorian London house or a modern California home.
What’s been the best part? I love to learn new things, so the most fun part for me was the manufacturing process. The collection is crafted in Los Angeles, so I was able to ensure that every piece was designed to be comfortable.
Are there specific pieces from the line in your own home? I have the Belmont chair in Paprika, the Rivington sofa in Stripe and the Ambleside bed in Dark Blue. The Belmont chair has been my favorite since I’m currently working from home. It’s a great place to sit and take calls or have my morning tea while planning my day.
