Found it: Funky bird plates

Dwell Catalogue Scan

It’s no secret I am a huge fan of Dwell Studio – I comment on their blog oft, drool over their products on a weekly daily basis and am keeping all eyes and ears open for another ‘pop up’ sample sale, much like they had in Soho a year ago or so.

If you don’t get their catalogue you are missing out on pics and ideas of some great house textiles. The above shot caught my eye when perusing the Winter 2009 mag – Sure I love the woodblock apron but where-oh-where did that plate come from?? Ravens juxtaposed with traditional design..I just plain love it.

Seconds Collection

Well wonder no more – Clio-Home sells the fabulous ‘Seconds plates’ for …well a pretty penny. Priced at $145 for four dinner plates and $99 for four dessert plates, I love how they are described:

“The Seconds collection takes this idea of mistake to a new level. Each piece of china is mismatched. To take things a bit further, each piece of tableware has randomly placed designs that are juxtaposed in curious ways.”

So check them out if you want them, or if you just want to drool like I do.
