Welcome to the Marlowe RoomxRoom blog!
Each month we'll feature some of our favorite objects, furniture, and fixtures from all around the world, as we aim to help you discover your own design identity!
This month's collection features some of our favorite artisanal pieces from projects past and present. We prefer to work with local designers and makers every chance we get. We love the quality and luxury of hand-made pieces and we celebrate the ingenuity of the people who create them.
Arcade Table by Crump and Kwash, Baltimore City, MD
We love this sculptural multi-purpose cast concrete beauty by one of our favorite U.S.-based studios! Suitable for both interior and exterior applications, it comes in several delightful colors and works as both a table, and extra seating!
$1650 + shipping at Crump & Kwash
Fornace Brioni Terra Cotta Wall Tile by Cle Tile, San Fransisco, CA
Our favorite artisanal tile studio recently launched a collection of traditional terracotta and glazed ceramics in collaboration with architect Cristina Celestino. This special collection of dimensional geometric wall and floor tiles are created by hand in Gonzaga, Lombardy, Italy, the small town where terracotta originally hails from! The collections "delve into themes of classical architecture with nods to renaissance grottos and Italian gardens, and a subtle playfulness enhanced by clean modern forms."
$35.00 per square foot at Cle Tile
Highwire Pendant by Anony Studio Toronto, Canada
Anony Studio made a splash on the international design scene with this ceiling fixture that was debuted at the Toronto Interior Design Show. Designers from all over were gushing over its elegant simplicity and stunning diffuse light. We used this pendant, a single drop in a powder room as the piece de resistance and it still amazes us how it single-handedly carries the room's design to the next level!

Primitive Vases by Leanne Ford for Crate and Barrel
We love when retailers collaborate with artisans to create approachable, affordable and design-savvy pieces for our clients! This collection by designer Leanne Ford is no exception! "While these pieces are refined and polished, they're not meant to be or feel too perfect," she says. We love the nod to Japanese ceramics and the wabi-sabi tradition!
$30- $50 per piece at Crate & Barrel
