NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ellen DeGeneres, the world renowned and beloved television host and
entrepreneur, who recently partnered with Royal Doulton, releases a full
tableware collection. The ED Crafted by Royal Doulton Collection
expands the ED by Ellen brand into contemporary tableware, allowing
consumers to embrace and express their own sense of style and
individuality through all parts of their lives. The tableware collection
is inspired by both Ellen and Royal Doulton’s love for artisanal, yet
Ellen’s style and personality, which is a perfect fit with Royal
Doulton, sit at the heart of the collection, inspiring each and every
pattern, texture and color throughout the relaxed and original designs.
THE TABLEWARE COLLECTION
Handcrafted and artisanal qualities are very much at the forefront,
creating a unique collection of eight different tableware designs and a
range of mix and match sets that allows consumers to express their own
personality through the various elements of the designs.
Featuring four different patterns in four unique colors, the range is
inspired by Ellen’s love of nature while highlighting natural
imperfections. The textured patterns in the range offer a color palette
and texture to suit all interior styles. All items are sold individually
($10-$14.50) or in 16 piece sets ($167).
Polar Blue – Created with a series of concentric dots and
lines, the Polar Blue collection highlights one of Ellen’s favorite
words, kindness, adding an element of charm and delight to the
Cobalt Blue – Featuring a bolder aesthetic, the hand drawn
chevrons and lines are reminiscent of batik fabrics and textile
prints, which Ellen takes great inspiration from.
Soft White – With a softer design, this collection has hand
drawn lines picked out in a subtle taupe color, creating an
understated, classic appeal.
Charcoal Grey – Showcasing a sophisticated feathered detail,
with an organic, natural and timeless feel.
Brush Stroke Tableware
A collection of tableware designs in a selection of four distinct
colored glazes – Cobalt Blue, Polar Blue, Charcoal Grey and Soft White.
The collection has a hand brushed rim, making each piece unique. Each
item in the collection is glazed by hand, revealing the stoneware
beneath on the mug and bowl, giving each piece a natural contrast of
matte and shine.
The Brush Stroke patterns are sold as 16 piece sets (11” plates x4, 8.5”
plates x4, cereal bowls x4, mugs x4) for $167.
Mix & Match Sets (Accent Collections)
Bringing Ellen’s personality to life, the ‘Mix & Match Sets’ features
Ellen’s favourite sentiment – love. Three uniquely different illustrated
designs create statement pieces for any home. The sets of 4 plates,
bowls or mugs are comprised of 4 individual designs in each set, all of
which mix together perfectly, but can also be layered back into the rest
of the tableware collection.
Blue Love – The individual ‘Love’ designs of each plate, bowl
and mug are inspired by Ellen’s love of nature, showcasing wild
flowers and the countryside in cobalt blue illustrations. Made in the
same way as the textured patterns, the accents range has the same
debossed feel, giving the individual designs depth and tactile beauty.
Signature – Using artwork inspired by Ellen’s favorite prints,
the red, grey and taupe hand drawn graphic details bring to life
Ellen’s sense of style.
Cave Paintings – Unique, hand drawn animal characters are
inspired by Ellen’s love for art. The centuries old drawings stand the
test of time and add a unique element of interest to any interior.
