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!

    Oh I love to see new patterns of blue and white, may they never end!
    Have a very old pattern, Blue Tower by Spode, all made in England…old but the cobalt blue has held up well. Use it every day.
    The last two patterns from the Shou collection I particularly like. And isn’t it all about layering….and more layering..even clothes look best when layered.

    do the new blue and white patterns, such as blue shou layer well with blue canton? I have the blue canton dinner plates and want to layer with salad and dessert in complementary blue and white.

    Absolutely Carol! I layer a variety of blue and white!
