Shop the Trend: Elusive Dynasty

Within the lavish aura of Elusive Dynasty, the products are an additional layer to the intricacies and details of the trend. Each with their own look and feel, both in presence and texture, the vessels have their own story to tell.

The Script budvase looks as if it's an artifact from a different time. Hints of cobalt peek from behind the bronze glaze giving an etched effect. 


The iron Mabel has always been a fan favorite with its versatile shapes and sizes. Whether grouped together or separate there's a plethora of options for a wide range of arrangements.


The facets of the Matrix lanterns add curiosity to lighting. The brushed gold detail on the Levee vase adds mystery and texture to an arrangement. 

The jade finish on the mercury glass of the Suncoo creates an unexpected pop of color. The metallic elements of the Zola adds focus to this popular trend.


The Eleanor collection is filled with budvases, vases and pots all hand-painted porcelain pieces each with their own personality and flair.




Many thanks from Frank & Margaret

The Trend: Elusive Dynasty



The Mood

A world of deep colors influenced by Asian traditional design and opulence. Filled with deep colors, beautifully aged walls with rich patinas, bright golds, shining crystal and occasional moments that remind you that you are in our contemporary time.

You are a welcomed guest in a dreamlike and elegant home. This is a dynasty to which you already belong, the dynasty of your imagination, which is vast and wonderful. An imagination ignited by beautifully drawn koi fish swimming against bold backdrops to event tables with ornate fabrics and tapestries. The contrast of aged furniture and walls with excessive beauty drives this tale of wonder. From draped silk fabrics, to exquisite screens and aged walls, to chandeliers and paintings, this story completely envelops you in its depth and abundance of beauty.



The Colors & Vessels








Unlike Leaf & Line, this collection is known for its ornate and elaborate aesthetic. The colors of the story evoke a stunning ambiance with lavish details and silhouettes. The delicate hand painted blue and white vases [eleanor] sit next to a variety of mercury glass votives [regime], heavy gold details [dominix], and deep jades [yuma].



The Showroom

As your walk through the Elusive Dynasty story you feel as if you've gone into an estate home of a world traveler. The space is draped with deep silks and layered with printed tapestries and artwork. The walls are dripping with coatings of rich paint with Koi fish sketches scurrying all around. The play of shiny and matte textures lends itself well under the sea of floating candelabras. 



The Flowers

The floral design for this trend mirrors the Japanese Ikebana style arrangements. The flowers follow the strong Asian influence but are more lush and decadent. The appearance gives the feeling that the flowers have been plucked from the estate's garden: a plethora of blossom branches, roses, cymbidiums, delphinium, ranunculus and pepper berries mixed with frittilaria, allium and larkspur.

Shop the Trend: Leaf & Line

While Leaf and Line seems like an exclusive collection with its sophisticated gallery feel - there's still a little something for everyone. Whether you are enamored with golds and bronzes, drawn to milky ceramics, or enthused by glass pieces, one is able to find a little love story within the trend.

Our Lara cube pairs well with our smoked glass Atelier votive. The dark hues allow bright florals to pop! 

Our hammered metal gold Roberi bowl creates a multitude of styling options. 


The Suya budvase features a scratched design on its ceramic surface. 

The gold rimmed Zoya budvase allows for height and versatility. 

Our organic rimmed Solange showcases a gold speckled finish on the white ceramic pot.
(And who doesn't love a chic watering can?)


The Highview candleholder creates a warm glow when used with a candle or can be repurposed for various display options!

The mix of gold and copper makes our Society vase stand out from the rest!

The Trend: Leaf & Line


The Mood

The story is that of a neon greenhouse driven by shape and line. The space has a gallery feel. It is artfully composed and curated with a sense of humor and surprise. Sharp silhouettes, mirror reflections and crisp surfaces thrive alongside lush, living subjects. The clean, geometric design is exciting but also restful because of the simplicity of its layout and the deliberate treatment of pattern, line and light.

Patterns create surprising elements -- soft static shadows of leaves on blank canvas. A palm presses gently along a wall, painting it with its shadow. Beautiful wallpapers with artful leaf designs mesh with works for natural art. Neon light and bright bloom-shades radiate tropical heat against the pervasive cool. It is sleek and surprising. Edited and inviting.

Poised, polished and a little wild.
The Colors & Vessels

The colors within the collection are minimal: heavy on black [kensli], white [suya] and gold [roberi] with several glass pieces [zoya]. Very few textures: Polish blown glass for the larger event glass pieces, shiny glazes [solange], on the ceramics and a myriad of geometric lines throughout.


The Showroom

The look of the space for Leaf and Line is driven by simplicity. We created an ambiance as if you are walking through a sophisticated art space with a sense of humor and surprise. Using pattern, line and light treatments casting shadow play with leaves on white backdrops. The feel is modern yet playful with a flair of 80's influence. Elements of surprise lie within the jungle printed wallpaper and the neon signage as you walk under a canopy of palms, "Everything you can imagine is real," and "Beauty is wild," shining brightly on the Celfie vase wall.


The FlowersThe floral design style is very linear and simple. Our team used different types of leaves and foliage to create textures and lines using repetition and natural curves. Specific flowers and foliage include: birds of paradise, split leaf philodendron, palm fronds and pink ginger, among others.
