I sometimes day dream that if my numbers come up, then I would invite Max Rollitt to decorate my home, which would be some sort of Georgian dwelling filled with natural light.
Either that or something completely new, but then Max may not be interested. He has that Midas touch where everything he touches is beautiful. Not gold exactly but patinas bought about by aging and Max’s grasp on how the aesthetics of time can create joyful interiors.
I think he will make more people happy with the launch of his new bespoke furnishing collection called White Goods. Odd name granted and makes me think of washing machines and linen, but this is a simply beautiful series of pieces that focus raw wood, celadon glaze, stoneware and gesso.

The furniture part of White Goods features a Sycamore topped table with a bronze frame, a Windsor Bench based on Max’s favourite ‘Windsor’ chair made in ash with an elm seat and a classic Ash Bench.
The decorative part has Garniture, a word that means a set of decorative accessories. Max’s Garniture is a set of five of lidded and unlidded vases. His other White Vases come in curious shapes and sizes arranged in groups or individually. To complete the collection are three stately Celadon Vases that can also be lamped and the Bobbin turned lamp.
White Goods will never make be think of washing again.
