MODERN MAXIMALIST HOMEWARE FROM 1STDIBS AND LA DOUBLEJ
Composed of Ancap porcelain serveware, Como-made linens, and textured soft furnishings
5 January 2022
Bringing together a shared passion for vintage design, the collaboration between 1stDibs and LaDoubleJ nods to the Milanese label’s roots with a collection composed of Ancap porcelain serveware, Como-made linens, and textured soft furnishings. Every piece in the collection is 100% made in Italy by La DoubleJ’s historic partners, a testament to the label’s luxury ethos and commitment to supporting Italian craft.
Giving new life to pre-loved pieces, La DoubleJ Founder JJ Martin has also worked to curate a collection of her favourite vintage furniture finds from the 1stDibs offering, which have then been re-upholstered in her iconic bold geometric prints. Highlights from the range include Cherrywood Chairs found in an aristocratic Brianzan villa featuring the Clover print, and a statement-making Cubi-clad 1960s Bamboo Sofa.
New for January 2022, the collaborators have expanded the collection with a signature injection of modern maximalist magic.
- Four luxury cushion designs join the range, featuring strokable Italian-made velvet and silky fringe tassel trims. Bright animal characters adorn each cover, each symbolising an uplifting message for the coming year. A cricket to channel good luck, a jungle-prowling tiger for courage, an owl for sharp vision, and a forest-dwelling deer for grace and compassion. At a plush 55x55cm, the cushions are well suited for both relaxing on the sofa or meditating on the floor.
- The animal motifs also find a home on two striking Ancap porcelain trays - one featuring the deer, the other the tiger . An ideal size to fill with nuts or olives to perfect an aperitivo, collect jewellery on a vanity, or place in an entryway for keys and coins. Made in Italy, each tray is gilded with a hand-painted 18k gold trim.
