Colourful homeware to celebrate Pride Month 2020
At Maison Flâneur, we’re proud to be an inclusive brand that supports equal rights for people identifying as LGBTQ+. So in honour of pride month – which kicks off in June 2020 to commemorate the Stonewall riots of June 1969 – we’ve gathered a rainbow of our favourite colourful homeware pieces and home accessories. All curated to be perfect accompaniments for your at-home Pride celebrations or dinner parties, and crafted by the best independent and artisan brands worldwide.
Red’s a colour of strength, power, and passion – a fitting way to begin the rainbow, and honour the LGBTQ+ community. This red love handles vase celebrates the human form, crafted from ceramic and perfect for dinner party flowers.
Private: Burgundy Love Handles Vase£345
Decorate your space with our ‘cheeky’ vase. Anissa’s admiration for sculptor Constantin Brancusi’s work is evidenced in the curvilinear form of this Love Handles vase. Finished with a matte surface and accented with two small handles, the derrière-shaped piece is can be filled with flowers or simply appreciated as the art piece it is.
Yellow is a fun, vibrant colour that signifies energy. Keep your energy high with music and movement – this yellow aluminum bar speaker can be wall-mounted, and makes for a fun design choice as well as an entertainment piece.
Ambience is everything when it comes to hosting intimate celebrations and small gatherings, and green’s a great colour to help you set the tone – it signifies growth and abundance. This set of 3 woven green planters is handwoven in France and doubles up as storage, and this set of 2 green terracotta candlesticks from Morocco add light and warmth to any occasion.
Private: Tamegroute Candlesticks, Set of 2
These candlesticks will make your dinner guests green with envy, thanks to their interesting backstory. They’re handmade in Tamegroute – a village in south Morocco that’s famous for its green pottery. Artisans form their tapered shape by hand, before using a unique glaze that gives them their mid-toned green hue. And thanks to their handmade nature, no two are exactly alike. Make your evening meals glow, and place one of these at each end of your table. But thanks to their distinctive, organic look, they’ll impress whether lit or left bare.
As the colour of water and creativity, blue is a fitting colour to keep the conversation and evening flowing – with this blue designer jug by Carolina Irving and Daughters, perfect for wine or cocktails. If your interior design style is more contemporary, this blue and pink nude artwork makes for a fun talking point.
When you add purple to your at-home celebration, be sure to go all out – it’s the last colour of the rainbow (technically violet), and represents luxury and indulgence. This over the top, patterned purple enamel jug is hand-painted and covered in illustrations of tigers and flowers. Form meets function.
