While at the High Point Furniture Market , I always go in the Mottahedeh showroom! This market I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy Kvalheim, the Design Director and CEO of Mottahedeh. Wendy was so generous with her time and showed me their new collection of blue and white patterns!
She explained that these lovely new patterns were each inspired from design details in the Blue Canton pattern .
This collection is called “Shou”, which means long life and will be available in February . I am very fascinated that each of these patterns were designed from the small details found in Blue Canton.
Wendy has shown these new pieces with Mottahedeh’s Labyrinth Blue charger. Oh how I love the “layering” of these blue and white patterns!
Wendy showed me the area in Blue Canton that inspired this particular pattern in Shou, which was also very interesting.
Thanks to Mottahedeh for always presenting the most classic patterns in blue and white china! And thanks to Wendy for taking time to explain the inspiration behind these lovely new patterns. No…I must not be tempted to collect another blue and white pattern…no more china storage at Chestnut Cottage!
