Always eager to add to my black & white collection, I was delighted to discover Country Estate, by Juliska, is a lovely new pattern with scenes from the English countryside, rendered in pen-and-ink drawings. As their website describes it “May the bounty of your table be as boundless as the lovely English landscapes depicted in our new dinnerware collection, Country Estate. With every nibble or sip, you take one step further on a charming narrative of English country life, with a different enchanting scene on each piece illustrating its romantic architecture, bustling activities, and grand vistas. By interlacing age-old decorative techniques with a chic, neutral, palette and unrivaled functionality, Country Estate maintains thoroughly modern sensibilities while still feeling from the manor born… This graceful collection is the result of an elegant duet between our Juliska designers and Deborah Sears, renowned designer and painter of Isis Ceramics in England.”
I’ve shown it here with Depression Glass water goblets and ice tea goblets in the La Fleure Yellow pattern by Tiffin Franciscan from Replacements Ltd. The hellebores are in black & white antiqued tin “number” pots from Pottery Barn, as are the napkin rings. The yellow & white linens are from French Country in Toronto and the flatware is a (very regretfully) discontinued stainless pattern from Williams Sonoma.
