When artfully arranged, a thoughtfully curated selection of humble, utilitarian objects such as plates can be as compelling and refreshing as a pedigreed work of art.
A collection of majolica plates in the home of designers Frank de Biasi and Gene Meyer adds a delightfully maximalist layer to a room already brimming with personality.
Geometry for the Wall
Designer Veere Grenney derived architectural interest and a quiet note of color from a set of 19th-century Royal Worcester porcelain.
In the former home of fashion designer Johnson Hartig, a grouping of blue-and-white transferware creates a vibrant focal point.
The Perfect Frame
In designer Charles Spada’s dining room, delicate creil faience plates outline an antique mirror and give the space a poetic grace.
