Introducing the New Bohemian Collection
It’s summertime. . .
Summer is in full swing and to quote Ella Fitzgerald, “the livin' is easy”. Let your table reflect that carefree, easy-breezy attitude with our New Bohemian collection. Celebs like Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Mary-Kate Olsen, and the original woman who liked to “go her own way”, Stevie Nicks, have popularized boho style. The look is equal parts whimsical and well-traveled – an effortless mix of ethnic prints, organic textures and metallic accents. It’s collected and oh-so cool. So, put on your flowy maxi dress and relax. We’ve done the hard work for you.
LET GO OF MATCHY-MATCHY
Say what you like, but you certainly can’t call the bohemian style dull. The key to this laid-back luxe look is a relaxed mix of styles. Inspiration draws from different continents and time periods. Take our Wayfarer Tablecloth in Red/Pink. This beautiful ikat pattern is a modern interpretation of a traditional Uzbek style of weave that was typically worn by royalty and dates back more than 500 years. But its color palette of bright reds and pinks makes it feel so fresh and modern today. With the ikat pattern, we’ve paired our Eloquence Napkins in Red/Pink. The napkins are of French and Indian inspiration from the late 19th century. We have them handblocked in India just as they would have done over 100 years ago. No matter that the two textiles are stylistically different. Our Eloquence Napkins add a touch of whimsy to the table and enhance the rich red and pink color palette.
BRIGHT IS RIGHT
We can’t forget the hippie quality to bohemian style. Natural elements are key parts of bohemian style. Now, we don’t expect you to be a tree hugger to love our New Bohemian collection. But, we think we can all relate to the joy we feel on a beautiful day when the sun is shining and the grass is green. Our Glazed Leaf Plates and Glazed Leaf Accents are lush green and easily bring the outdoors in. Perfect for condiments, dessert or bread, they add a pop of color and natural element to your table or room. (And, are the perfect wedding or hostess gift!) Our Turquoise Bottle Vases are the color of the sky and the perfect vessels for flowers picked from the side of the road.
Mix It Up
A lot of bohemians are artists or makers themselves, so there’s a true connection to the hand made and organic. Our Blush Plates are the ideal compliment to some of the brighter colors in the New Bohemian collection. Made of stoneware and glazed in soft cream to pale pink, these plates are delicate and full of artistry. Watch as they tone down brighter patterns and be wowed as they perk up more plain table settings. These plates are sure to put a smile on your face. Our Looped Placemats also bring a natural element to the table. Made exclusively for us by artisans in the Philippines, these placemats bring an air of sophisticated casualness to your table. Round in shape and beautifully finished with a ribbon pattern, they are seasonally versatile and the perfect way to layer your table with ease.
A Bit of Gold Dust
Try to picture Stevie Nicks without a million necklaces or bangles on her arms. You can’t, right? That’s because shimmery accents are essential for the bohemian look. We’ve paired our ethnic patterned table linens and organic dinnerware with sleek gold flatware, glittering napkin rings, brass candlesticks and simple gold julep cup vases.
Our Irresistible Flatware is just that. Made in Italy, it is heavyweight, dishwasher-safe and won't corrode, oxidize or stain. Its sleek, modern shape creates a beautiful juxtaposition with some of the more organic elements of the collection.
Our Faceted Napkin Rings are an effortless way to bring boho style to your table. Light bounces off the tiny gold segments making your table sparkle in a fun, but sophisticated way.
Our Julep Cup Vases are the perfect vase for a tight bunch of flowers. We love them with our Bohemian collection because of their simplicity. But, trust us, you can use these vases anywhere! A grouping of them around a larger centerpiece always works, or try them filled with some sweet flowers on your bedside table.
And, our best-selling Mid-Century Candlesticks with their sleek shape, add another bit of bling as well as another style to the mix!
