The rich artistic tradition of the Islamic world, is the design inspiration behind the launch collection of Moresque, a new on-line retailer specialising in contemporary home decorating accessories, tabletop, bed linen and soft furnishings.
Tas Rahman, founder of Moresque, has combined traditional Moorish designs from Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and beyond, with a modern-day approach to decorating the home; the collection offers unique, hand-crafted decorative products, with broad appeal and can be purchased on-line.
The eye catching Ever-Lasting Candles featured here, are hand-made in Morocco, from wax with inset arabesque motifs, in copper or thuya wood, and are inspired by traditional Islamic art and architecture.
The world famous Dutch artist and designer Wouter Dolk, has created a home décor collection for Royal Copenhagen; beautiful porcelain ornaments to bring joy all the year round.
The Art of Giving Flowers collection consists of three different Wall Reliefs in three sizes and three different colours, iridescent pink, blue and white in matt and shiny glaze; sizes 21 cm, 23 cm and 38 cm.
The first two depict a beautifully carved Dahlia, while the largest dish is a composition of Chrysanthemum and Cherry Blossom.
When hearing the name “Herend”, people who appreciate beautiful things, immediately think of quality hand-made porcelain and have done so for the past 180 years.
In the beginning, the small scale manufactory only had a couple of employees and has now become the largest porcelain making company producing hand crafted china in the world today.
The product range of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory Ltd. encompasses over 15,000 different shapes and more than 4,000 patterns, providing unique opportunities for its customers.
Royal Copenhagen’s history inspired the new Heritage collection, consisting of four ornamental vases that can be used separately, or combined in an arrangement, in which both form and colour create a beautiful whole.
Hand-painted vases have played a prominent role in Royal Copenhagen’s product range ever since it was founded in 1775.
It took over a century to refine the technique that brought Royal Copenhagen the Grand Prix at the World Fair in Paris in 1900 and generated the international demand for Royal Danish vase art that continues to this day.
Lalique has launched a new collection of glassware for Summer 2007, Bucolique, which embodies all the graceful accents found in nature.

Rosendahl is launching three new vases in their popular Filigran range designed by Lin Utzon, which are unlike anything she has ever created before.
Her hallmark has always been flowers and garlands intertwined in discreet or milky-white sand-blasted patterns.
However, these new hand-blown Filigran vases, have nothing “filigree” about them, as they have no pattern whatsoever and portray only simplicity itself, with elegant form and colour.
Lin Utzon’s latest artistry in glassware is in the darkest, deepest black, the most elegant imaginable ivory and the most exquisite shade of white; three classic illustrations of the assertion that “you’ll never believe how beautiful colours can be until you have seen them with your own eyes”.
Carrol Boyes the South African artist and designer, has created a unique functional art form by combining her inspirational gifts with the beauty of pewter.
Carrol’s growing portfolio of metalwork sculptures consists of innovative and distinctive items, which fulfill a practical use as well as being eye-catching talking pieces and would fit comfortably into even the grandest of homes.
The Quattro Bowl set of four crafted in aluminium featured here, is a fine example of her creative skills. Priced at £205.
These new glass vases from Rosendahl show the elegant talent of their designer Lin Utzon.
The vases (and matching votives) are hand-blown, and the different patches of colour that adorn the vases are placed on individually, making each one a unique glass sculpture in its own right.
Lin has chosen 5 colours and colour combinations for the Confetti vases, including lime green, blue, white and orange.
