Design Sleuth: Mix-and-Match Tea Sets

Issue 12 · Color Coded · March 20, 2012

A little color goes a long way with Jansen + Co's brightly hued ceramics, spotted in a Finnish kitchen.

We noticed the ceramics on Varpunen, where blogger Suki created a display of "My" series of teapots, mugs, sugar bowls, and cake stands: the perfect modernist tea set. Known for its colorful tableware, Dutch company Jansen + Co was founded by Anouk Jansen and husband Harm Magis in 2006. Since each piece features contrasting colors, Jansen recommends mixing and matching to create a customized set.
