House of Quinn is a design practice creating narrative-based collections of work with a focus on traditional craft techniques and application. Founded by Julius Arthur in 2016, House of Quinn is a place for exploration in craft, making and design.
The foundation for Julius’ work has been informed by the craftsmanship, heritage and stories that can be found in the objects we might interact with every day, exploring the idea that these ephemera can become vessels for narrative. Julius brings inspiration from his rural upbringing, the landscape and folklore into his work, while also sourcing and foraging for textiles and renewed materials to become the basis of his collections. He works with the constraints of locally sourced materials and creates small-batch or unique objects for abode and dwelling.
Julius Arthur is a designer, artist and maker who holds a Masters Degree in Fashion Design and Business Studies from the University of Brighton. He has exhibited work with Toast, Seasalt, Hole & Corner and The New Craftsmen as well as featured in international press publications such as Elle Decoration, Kinfolk and Living etc
