Ellen DeGeneres has expanded her home brand empire. The comedian turned TV host turned home and apparel designer's new collaboration with Royal Doulton is now available.
ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Royal Doulton is a mouthful of a name, but the pieces do make us hungry for more. The contemporary tabletop line features eight tableware patterns and three mix and match sets that have a "rustic, yet current look," as it was described in a press release when we reported on the announcement of the collaboration in October.
The collection is "inspired by [Ellen's] love of artisanal design," and is "perfect for everyday and casual entertaining." We're fans of the texture on the brushed glaze ceramics, and the simple, hand-drawn feel of the "chevron" and "love" sets.
"I should warn you, they're so beautiful that you'll want to gobble up all your food as fast as you can just so you can see the plates again," DeGeneres jokes.
The mix and match collection debuted at the Ambiente show in Frankfurt, Germany earlier this month. Though only a few mugs are currently available through Royal Doulton's online shop, more of the pieces are currently available for purchase at Bed Bath & Beyond. Prices range from $9.99 for a single mug to $99.99 for a 16-piece dinnerware set.
This isn't either brand's first collaboration. The over two hundred year old, London based Royal Doulton has released collections with the likes of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, British designers designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, and the colorful design firm HemingwayDesign.
