There is no mistaking Christopher John Rogers’s new chair line with Orior for anything at all but Christopher John Rogers. There is his gradient dot print (worn sensationally in jumpsuit kind by Anne Hathaway earlier this year) splashed across the Irish home furnishings brand’s Lia chair, and his signature rainbow checks rendered in linen more than another. One layout is a mastery of blended motifs, juxtaposing a black-and-white checkerboard with zebra stripes all in a single piece. “I required to take our iconic prints and plug them into factors that are iconic for Orior as very well,” Rogers tells Vogue.
When it came to his to start with-ever home furnishings selection, Rogers wished to make certain his brand’s wild originality was on complete show, but without sacrificing features. “I like to continue to keep factors simple—classic, comfortable—while also incorporating a tiny little bit of eclecticism,” he states. So he decided to consider four of Orior’s most effective-offering chairs, regarded for their adaptability and flexibility, and stamp them with his fantastical styles. “In the assortment, the styles themselves are fairly typical and uncomplicated in a way,” Rogers provides. “What makes them declarative is the blend and the colors.”
