Lustables: Girard Proof Jensen Tableware

Historic Girard prints: vintage American design that’s good ‘til the last drop. 

The influence of America’s most beloved and legendary textile designers and colorists, Alexander Girard, is palpable even today. He is known in design circles for his work with Herman Miller, wherein he created fabrics for the house of Charles and Ray Eames, as well as his eclectic collection of folk art and exotic textiles preserved through the Girard Foundation.

His pop-aesthetic became legion, however, with his mid-century hues and patterns (very Mad Men). Most notably, the Pinwheel pattern: featured here on this George Jensen mug and tableware collection from the Miller House and Garden, a national landmark and architectural study that has been called “America’s most significant Modernist house.”

Truly good til the last drop, note that Patera 1 pattern on the inside of the mug.

Pair with these porcelain plates for the perfect cuppa.

Prices range from $12.95-$52.
