What could be fresher then the classic combo of blue and white, clearly people have thought this for centuries and it has be the favorite of a lot of collectors, porcelain collectors in particular!
It could be said that Blue is the color of Stylist,I don’t know many who don’t go ga over it. I have always loved blue but when you team it with white, it just pops.
In the Netherlands, Delftware denotes blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands from the 16th century. Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions such as plates, ornaments and tiles. The Chinese have also used Blue and White wares, Tang and Song eras are particularly collectable and rare. The true development of blue and white ware in China started with the first half of the 14th century, but have been used as inspiration for Western style porcelain for centuries as seen in Wedgwood and Schumacher patterns.
Many contemporary Artists and Designers have used the combo in their works and even though it can appear quite traditional it really looks so fresh and amazing when applied with new silhouettes and designs, One such Designer is Laura Slater, Based in the U.K in West Yorkshire, Her Assemble/ Configure fabric in particular works so well when applied to modern accessories such as pillows and shades.
