Dinner With Gomez & Morticia

I alternately find the Gothick style "Memento Mori" (rough translation "Remember that you are mortal") collection by designer Douglas Little either fabulous or silly. It's one of those things that can go either way, you know? Some of the items in the range, some of the skull items in particular, are a bit naff I think. But other stuff, like the plates and candle votives below I kind of like. It's expensive gear, US$180 for 4 plates in a box set. Not that I would probably buy it anyway, I mean I'm guessing it's kind of hard to make this stuff work with IKEA furniture...

These are only a few of the items in the large range, which you can see over at unica home.




Memento Mori set of 4 plates. Just the thing next time you sit down to a dish of braaaaaaaains!


Black pepper scented Altar Candle.


Jasmine scented Altar Candle.


Hemlock scented candle in a frosted glass votive. DO NOT EAT would be my recommendation.


The 'L' plate from the L-O-V-E Birds 4 plate set.


[Updated: Ok, scratch what I said about dinner at Gomez & Morticia's. Because I think Diamanda Galas must have the whole Douglas Little collection! To whit:



I'm right, don't you think?]

I love the attar (not altar) candles... especially the jasmine one!

And interestingly without the other three plates to set me on the right track, I so would have turned the L plate 90 degrees to the left...

Oh, and I ADORE the look of the bookends by Timothy Richards on that unica website!
