Diptych Home Décor launches brightly colored tableware and wallpaper
Diptyque Home Décor launches the colorful ‘Artist’s Palette’ collection
The Diptyque Home Décor collection expands to include a new range of artist-inspired tableware and wallpapers
Diptyque, the Parisian house which celebrated its 60th anniversary last year with the launch of Diptyque Home Décor, continues its expansion into homewares with a new table collection called “Artist’s Palette”.
The brand has also unveiled a beautiful range of wallpaper designs.
Diptyque Home Décor draws on an enviably rich artistic heritage; the house has an archive of drawings and designs that date back to the beginnings of the original Diptyque store in the 1960s at 34 Boulevard St Germain – a bazaar of treasures that functioned as a kind of creative salon and welcomed and inspired a diverse clientele from around the world. literary and artistic world.
Its three talented founders – Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Desmond Knox-Leet and Yves Coueslant – were a decorator, painter and designer who worked together and built up an impressive library of art, patterns and designs, some of which are currently listed. in the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
The Diptyque brand has become evocative of a certain style and a certain mood, that of cultivated chic and sensory pleasure. After all, it was the brand that heralded our now deep-rooted appreciation of the world of perfume and scented objects such as luxury candles that have become a way of life. The Home Décor collections offer the opportunity to further immerse yourself in Diptyque’s unique sensory world, with the brand’s unmistakable aesthetic now traversing tables and walls in an opulent variety of textures and materials.
The new ‘Artists Palette’ range is available as a permanent collection which joins previously released tableware lines such as ‘Basile’. In contrast to the latter’s monochromatic lines and curves, “Artists Palette” features an exuberant color palette, with gorgeous cerulean blues and soft greens dancing playfully across vases, dishes, glasses and trays. The collections complement each other and can be combined to create unique and spectacular tablescapes.
The new wallpaper patterns are equally inspiring. They tap into the house’s extraordinary archives to fantastic effect. Its heritage motifs are beautifully represented: ‘Pretorian’ features the distinctive ovals reminiscent of the shape of ancient Roman shields, while the black and white ‘Basil’ design offers bold drama.
The range of wallcoverings is theatrical, and sometimes unexpected, with a rich range of patterns and hues. Three panoramic wallpaper motifs (‘Landscape’, ‘Les Lilas’, ‘Jardin Clos’) are inspired by Desmond Knox-Leet’s travel diaries and pointillist sketches.
In the interests of sustainability, the house has chosen a digital printing technique on non-woven wallpaper, instead of fabric, using cutting-edge contemporary techniques that allow extreme precision when printing.
Diptyque’s foray into wall decoration offers a fabulous journey through its history and into its current incarnation as a titan of style. §
