Canvas Home enter the UK
US homewares brand Canvas Home brings Manhattan style to the UK after its successful launch at Home London in September
Fans of fashionable US brand canvas home, known for their simple modern and sustainable style will welcome their launch into the UK and first attendance at this year’s Home London exhibition.
Known for their support of individual artisans around the globe, their distinctive dinnerware and crafted flatware has a variety of handmade aesthetics and unique glazes and colour finishes for a sophisticated style.
At the show Canvas Home previewed the new Ciara dinnerware, which is a contemporary collection designed in collaboration with New York’s ceramicist Barbara Eigen.
"We are excited about our collaboration with Barbara Eigen, one of the US’s leading ceramists. Together we have created a limited edition collection of tableware of classic designs, which are fresh and organic in a contemporary style with canvas home’s understated glaze texture and colour.” Simon Lee, partner of Canvas Home
Amongst the vintage Tin stoneware collection and the organic Seagate and Shell Bisque ranges, there is the subtle yet glamorous Dauville porcelain finished with metallic glazing. This range complements the newly expanded copper cutlery range and alongside the chic matt black and popular gold flatware collections, Christmas dining at Canvas Home will be a simply sophisticated affair.
The glassware has distinct personalities; pure shapes in delicate glass; hand-blown glass; stemware with a nod to modernity and fabulous coloured glasses. Textiles such as tea towels, napkins, table mats and runners in linen, cotton and bamboo fibres are casual, fun, and include seasonal colour pops and patterns.
