Yinka Ilori is a London-based multidisciplinary artist who fuses his British and Nigerian heritage to create stunning works of contemporary art. His work has been displayed in exhibits everywhere from Lagos and Stockholm to New York City and London. Ilori has also worked with a variety of big-name brands, including Adidas, Pinterest, and Pepsi.
And fortunately for interior design and home decor enthusiasts everywhere, Ilori is now applying his talents to his first homeware line. Described as “humorous, provocative, and fun,” the pieces are equal parts vibrant and compelling, illustrating Ilori’s heritage while flawlessly combining form and function.
That being said, the line is much better seen than talked about, so check out a few of our favorite picks from the collection below.
Aami Aami Tablecloth, £150
Made in Portugal, this stunning tablecloth is composed of woven cotton jacquard, and the geometric pattern is woven directly into the fabric, making it durable and long-lasting. The bold piece is a great way to make a splash at your next dinner party.
Omi Bowl, £38
This bowl and all of the other serveware in this collection is individually hand-finished. Each of the hand-thrown pieces is slightly different than the next, giving them a one-of-a-kind feel that will instantly uplift your dish collection.
Set of Two Tea Towels, £40
As far as we’re concerned, you can never have too many tea towels, especially when they look as good as these. The intricate, geometric towels are made of absorbent cotton, so they work as well as they look, all the while adding a fun pop of color to your kitchen.
Ope Rug, £1,400
If you’re looking to make a major style statement, then meet your new favorite rug. This striking piece is made in Nepal using Tibetan wool and a hand-knot technique that results in an equally beautiful and durable rug that you can enjoy for years to come.
Ere Cushion, £75
Throw pillows are a great way to refresh your aesthetic because they’re a cinch to swap out and never fail to make an impact on your room’s overall style. And this beauty, with its intricate abstract pattern and unexpected hues, is sure to make a big impression anywhere it lives.
