Diptyque is Launching a New Home Collection Inspired by the ’60s
Despite being best known for candles, Diptyque started as a home goods brand in the 1960s. To celebrate its 60th anniversary the company is launching a new collection of home decor “inspired by the brand’s very first creations.”
Diptyque can count one one Beyoncé Knowles Carter as a fan. In a 2007 interview for InStyle Magazine, Beyoncé said that her house smells like vanilla, “Warm and sweet.” She told the publication that the vanilla smell is a specific scent from the Parisian candle company Diptyque. “I have a lot of Diptyque candles around the house,” Queen Bey continued. “Even when I’m away, I have someone burn them. I like having the scent in my pillows.”
“Kinetic curves, geometric gyrations, the contrast of black on white…the eye indulges in the optical illusion,” the Diptyque website reads. “Shapes come together and separate to reassemble once more, enchanting the interior of the everyday with a touch of tantalizing trompe-l’oeil.”
The graphic black-and-white motifs appear on mugs, trays, side plates, tumblers, and dinner plates, and each design a nod to and/or direct reproduction of the mod 1960s stylings that were big back in the day of Diptyque’s inception.
Although it might be some time before you can host another dinner party, there’s no shame in treating yourself to a piece or two from the new Diptyque tableware collection. You can check out the full line of black-and-white patterned porcelain and glass here, and treat yourself to one of the Beyoncé-approved candles while you’re at it.
