C harismatic British-American designer and TV personality Martyn Lawrence Bullard introduced New Yorkers this past April to his new product lines for the French firms of Daum and Haviland. The top 100 designer adds to his growing product and licensing deals which currently include fabrics for Schumacher, rugs for the British Rug Company, a tile line for Ann Sacks, and his own signature furniture, lighting, and home accessory lines.

Daum, which has been producing glass in France since 1878, teamed up with Bullard to create three Old Testament-inspired offerings. The Eden Chandelier, based on “original sin,” employs Daum’s version of pâte de verre, the ancient Egyptian art of glass-casting to create the “first tree” using pale hued crystal leaves and a bright red tempting apple topped with a metal gilt snake (price on request). The two tabletop products include a ruby red apple Daum Paperweight ($675) and a hollowed out larger version of the apple as an LED candle holder, the Daum Apple Votive ($1,470).

For the porcelain firm Haviland, Bullard’s hexagon themed dishware comes from an equally unusual source, old Hollywood movies and a textured manhole cover. It was important for Bullard to create pieces that work in both a modern and traditional context and could be mix and matched. “When I create products it needs to be exciting and new but not trendy-it needs to be able to stand the test of time.” The black, white, gray, and gold accented patterned line includes a 12.3 inch underplate ($145), 11 inch large dinner plate ($105), 9.5 inch dessert plate ($78), 6.3 inch bread and butter plate ($60), 4.7 inch coffee (espresso) cup and saucer ($126), 5.7 inch tea cup and saucer ($179), and 10.1 oz mug ($105).

Daum and Haviland products are distributed and sold worldwide through company retail stores and luxury retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Harrods.
