As at-home in a Saudi Royal palace as on your holiday table, Tamara Childs Collection introduces vibrant new metallic colors for her popular Wabi Sabi designed tabletop, holiday gifts and home décor
Seattle, WA (December 16, 2014)--Whether for the holiday table, weddings or as unique gifts, the keyword in home décor and tableware continues to be metallic: Tamara Childs Collection’s gold, silver, copper and composites of all create simple elegance for the holiday home. Just in time for your holiday list of must-have metallic gifts, décor and tabletop are the new twists on the Tamara Childs Collection Wabi Sabi-inspired designs. Oranges, golds, reds and all shades in between create a glow that will warm your table.
The term ‘Wabi Sabi’ represents a Japanese world view or aesthetic celebrating the beauty and peace in ordinary things. According to Wikipedia, the characteristics of the Wabi Sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, irregularity, simplicity, austerity and genuine integrity which the new Tamara Childs design captures beautifully.
Childs’ hand-gilding dazzles both on the table and as impressive gifts
Even as an ancient art, gilding thin metal leaf on surfaces as a means of adornment delighted—as gifts, artwork or everyday tableware. In her unique style, Tamara Childs continues this timeless tradition of creating hand-gilded pieces of table art and now introduces even more designs and colors for the 2014 holiday season.
To create her custom pieces, fine sheets of gold, silver or copper leaf--in an expanding pallet of treatments and colors-- is applied over a variety of tableware, home accessories, and more in individually crafted designs. The pieces are then hand polished and lacquered. Imagination and creativity are the cornerstone of Tamara Childs designs, and every piece from creation to finish-work to shipping goes through her hands—at least twice. It’s this very intimate relationship with each piece, according to Childs, that sets them apart from their competitors.
