The bold, bright and very personal designs in The Ottawa Collection mark Karim Rashid’s 30th anniversary

Tea party trinkets with a touch of whimsy are a highlight of the exciting new home decor line from world-renowned designer Karim Rashid and Denmark’s decor powerhouse BoConcept.

With bold patterns accented by bright splashes of colour, these unique mugs, espresso cups and rimmed saucers are works of art. In keeping with his fiercely individual style, Rashid even uses his own fingerprint as a recurring graphic on the teacups for a stylized modern look.

Dubbed The Ottawa Collection, the line pays homage to his decades of design work, which began 30 years ago when he graduated from design school in Canada’s capital. $9 each; BoConcept
