Online luxury retailer Moda Operandi has collaborated with The Elder Statesman – a Los Angeles-based luxury lifestyle label – and interior design and art consulting firm RP Miller on a collection of distinct tableware that celebrate handmade craft and heritage expertise.
Between The Elder Statesman founder Greg Chait and RP Miller designers Rodman Primack and Rudy Weissenberg, there is a shared love of artisans and the opportunity to collaborate with talented makers across the globe has been especially gratifying. Each piece is special individually, and together creates a story that is whimsical and defined by inherent qualities of craft.
Available exclusively on ModaOperandi.com from June 16, the collection comprises three categories – tabletop ceramics, drinking vessels and linens.
“We are so excited to launch The Elder Statesman’s first home collection. Greg and I both love a good party, so it was natural for him to take this next step into homeware with his brand. I love the boho, SoCal vibe of this collection. It’s perfect for a summer picnic, and equally gorgeous for BBQ dinner on your patio,” says Lauren Santo Domingo, co-founder of Moda Operandi.
Talavera Ceramics have been handmade in Mexico since the 17th Century, though production almost died until a few artists and collectors helped re-establish the craft in the early 20th century. The Elder Statesman and RP miller are working with a female-lead Talavera studio to create the tableware. Each place setting is a true mash up of The Elder Statesman themes with traditional Talavera motifs. No two pieces are identical, as the entire process is handmade.
The Glassware is made exclusively with a family-run glassblowing studio in Venice, Italy. Because each piece is handmade, the design is highly personal and meant to evoke the unique dyeing for which The Elder Statesman is recognised. Wood Tumblers are made in Guatemala from various hardwoods. The two styles differ in size, form and treatment.
Linens are hand stitched and dyed with 100% Belgian linen. The Elder Statesman and RP Miller chose to work with a small studio in Columbia to make placemats, napkins and tablecloths. Again, each piece has been individually hand-dyed, stitched and frayed in three colours – yellow, red and blue.
