La Grange’s new range of pots from Serax take their cue from Art Deco and seventies silhouettes
As a full-spectrum décor company – with an interior design service as well as its more public-facing retail side, La Grange knows what kinds of products make a beautiful space.
Walking a fine line between a country and contemporary aesthetic, its focus has always been on the handmade and celebrating craft, while at the same time speaking to a current design style. As a result, the brand’s product selection reflects an eclectic and global aesthetic, whether through its inhouse design ranges or via the international pieces sourced from around the world.
Particularly strong in the ceramics and objets arena, its pots, planters and vases are a functional but decorative way to add layers to a space. With its new planters by Serax, La Grange celebrates the design world’s current affinity for all things retro and midcentury. The Belgium-based company, like La Grange, foregrounds the handmade and craft-oriented and aims to add personality to spaces through unique pieces.
These planters, created by Serax’s resident designer Marie Michielssen, offer a cool, contemporary take on seventies and Art Deco inspired form. Lines and curves come together as a simple but striking motif reminiscent of the shapes typical of these iconic design periods.
Simple colourways too are a nod to a retro aesthetic – the incredibly trendy terracotta is a no-brainer for pairing with plants, while raw concrete gives a beautiful industrial effect and the fresh bright blue offers a striking accent indoors or out.
