Our set of multi coloured champagne flutes (2) will create a stunning impact at your next soiree or curl up by the fire with a set of two glass champagne flutes with gold star detailing (4). This elegant design is based on an engraved 19th century champagne glass held in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. If only all love affairs were as long lasting…

A set of two handmade, lavender filled fish (5) made from Liberty Print Cotton Lawn fabric and Dupion Silk will keep clothes and linen smelling sweet whilst our hand embroidered velvet hearts (10) make a charming addition to a wardrobe door handle or room key. A vintage style heart magnifying glass will make sure you spot Mr. or Mrs. Right on the horizon (and makes a lovely accessory for a dressing table or feminine writing desk in the meantime).

Keep your loved ones close to your heart wherever you go with a stylish, purse-sized travel frame (12) or make sure you’re never far from your loved ones thoughts this Valentine’s day by presenting them with your picture in a charming miniature diamante or pearl frame (3 and 11).

Celebrating Rosh Hashanah with Jenny Blanc Interiors

Jenny Blanc Blog - An Intimate Rosh Hashanah Table Setting

Above: Image from ‘How to set an intimate Rosh Hashanah table’ by Chai & Home.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, a holy festival celebrating the creation of the world. In 2018 Rosh Hashanah will begin in the evening of Sunday 9th September and end in the evening of Tuesday 11th September. Traditionally the festival is celebrated with a special family meal where apple slices dipped in honey are served alongside plenty of sweet treats. The Michael Aram Pomegranate Collection takes its inspiration from one of the most universal and ancient symbols in the world, making it a beautiful addition to your table. The fruit of the Pomegranate has been prized across the globe, across cultures and across time as a representation of life, rebirth, and renewal as well as fertility and union.

“I grew up around pomegranates – from their use as natural dyes on the antique rugs I used to crawl on as a baby to an integral ingredient in the food that I love. When I’m at my home in New Delhi, I wake each morning to the taste of fresh squeezed pomegranate juice. The colour, the smell, the delicate flavour all make it feel like a magical elixir to me.” Michael Aram

At Jenny Blanc Interiors we are proud to offer a special selection of products from the Michael Aram Pomegranate collection, perfect for gifting to loved ones at Rosh Hashanah or any time of year. These new additions to our London Showroom are available in-store or online via Trouva with worldwide shipping available.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Selection of Pomegranate Tableware

The Pomegranate Mini Pot with Spoon by Michael Aram (pictured below, centre) is a beautifully symbolic design which also serves a practical purpose – the gold-tone nickelplate lid lifts to reveal an enamel interior in a rich shade of brown which can be filled with honey, sugar or other condiments to enhance your table and create a memorable experience for your guests.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Pomegranate Tableware

The Pomegranate Plate by Michael Aram (pictured above, top left) perfectly captures the shape and texture of the inside of a pomegranate and is the perfect accompaniment to the mini pot with spoon. Handcrafted in goldtone, it makes an elegant addition to your table where it can be used to serve nibbles or as a decorative accent around the home.

The Pomegranate Catch All (pictured below) is artfully handcrafted using natural bronze. The dish undergoes a series of grinding, buffing and polishing techniques meaning each creation is unique – a work of art in its own right. The design mirrors a sliced pomegranate complete with stem and leaf and is a beautiful addition to any bedroom or bathroom where it will keep rings and other trinkets safe.
