MAISON PARIS PREVIEW: Julia Knight
Discover what exciting new products Julia Knight will unveil at the upcoming Maison & Objet, Paris, scheduled to take place January 22-26, 2016
At Maison & Objet, Paris, in the Cook + Design section (Hall 5A Stand M26), American brand Julia Knight will introduce a first for the company at Ambiente 2016 - new high-fire ceramics that are microwave and dishwasher safe.
The Bloom Collection includes a range of floral and foliage-inspired serving bowls, cake plates and platter. Think a gorgeous ensemble of blooms handcrafted and hand-painted by artisans in Portugal and decorated with sumptuous signature colours and layered designs.
Knight elaborates, “I have always wanted to create a line of easy-to-use ceramics that integrate natural design inspiration and high style.
Ceramics are a natural extension for me - I revel in turning things we use every day into beautiful and effortless lifestyle statements.”
The new Eclipse Collection is the epitome of authenticity, meanwhile, with its one-of-a-kind pieces delivering imperfect shapes. A nested bowl series, platter and tray, each piece is decorated in texture stone-like enamel finishes in four nature-inspired colours and complemented by a distressed metallic sheen.
