mydeco.com in conversation with Jennifer from Rocomara
What's the ethos behind your brand?Rocomara ignores trend driven design and instead creates timeless pieces that will last for generations. We aim to offer customers beautifully hand-crafted statement pieces, steeped in Moroccan heritage, that add a touch of sophistication and unique style to their interiors. It is important to us to work with the local artisans as they take such care and pleasure in their work. Their craftsmanship, use of premium materials and attention to detail can be seen and felt in each item we sell, which enables our customers to feel assured of the timelessness and enduring individuality of each piece.
Where do you find inspiration for new collections?We choose pieces for their style and individuality. We are inspired by traditional Moroccan urns, beautiful Moroccan trunks and striking African horn furniture. Each item will add flair to your interior and provide focal talking points.
Who's your favourite designer and why? I love interior designer Jacques Grange. His work blends Oriental and North African influences with Western styles, it is casually elegant with bohemian syntheses from near and far. He designed Yves Saint Laurent’s home in Marrakesh using impeccable taste but still playing on the exotic colours of Morocco; pink, red, yellow and of course Majorelle blue – the colour of YSL’s villa.
What is your most prized possession? My grandmother’s vintage screen. It is quite traditional in style and covered in beautiful green and purple patterns, which lends a nostalgic glamour to my bedroom. I find room dividers a wonderful way to separate areas within a room and are ideal for creating a dressing area.
