“Choosing tableware is an expedition only taken on by those ready to settle into a look which will remain in their family for generations. Hermes hopes that you will consider their Bleus D’Ailleurs tableware collection.Blue porcelain has been with us for centuries and this collection is inspired from the past while delivering elegant looks that summarize a modern spin. “Having come from China after a long voyage, the designs are directly inspired by nature. So there is nothing rigid about the petals, the daisies, the honeycomb…” Black highlights work with the blue in delivering an absolutely beautiful collection of porcelain tableware for your home.”

Roy McMakin is a designer, architect, and furniture maker. His art, which draws on his knowledge of and experience within these disciplines, demonstrates deep engagement with the artistic potential of domestic objects and environments. McMakin works with two classes of objects: in sculpture that looks like furniture or mundane household fixtures such as a non-functioning toilet made of wood, and furniture that is detailed or decorated to emphasize its sculptural aspects such as a wooden writing desk painted bright pink. He tests the cultural distinctions of these two types of objects that can at times, occupy the same physical space.


McMakin first brought his work to the public through Domestic Furniture, his Los Angeles showroom (closed in 1991). He continues to engage with the public through Domestic Architecture, his Seattle-based design firm whose portfolio has expanded from remodeling to ground-up home designs. MOCA Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood, California exhibited a survey of McMakin’s art and design work in 2003. Sculptures by McMakin are permanently installed at the University of California’s San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus and in the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. McMakin lives and works in Seattle.
