  • Summer settings: Palmyra in Southern Lady

    We were pleased to see our Palmyra Wine glass from our American Bar Collection in Southern Lady's May/June 2018 issue, in their "Mix & Match" feature.  In this issue, we see how the table can be set two ways using the same dark green dinner plate with different table setting elements (chargers, glassware, cutlery, etc) in each tablescape.

     

    Our Palmyra Wine is a perfect addition to the more formal, sophisticated setting of the two.  Our Palmyra stemware is made by hand, and the palm pattern is copper-wheel engraved by artisans trained in centuries-old techniques.  The palm pattern adds whimsy, while the classic shape of the glass elevates the setting.  There are other stemware options in Palmyra, as well as barware and giftware: explore them HERE.

     

    We hope this story encourages you to set lovely tablescapes all summer long!

     

    The Palmyra pattern is inspired by the Palmrya Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, where research is conducted to study and hopefully preserve the marine environment, particularly the coral reefs and sea turtles that thrive in the area.  William Yeoward Crystal supports these efforts by donating a portion of the sales of all items in the Palmyra pattern to help fund this research.

  • How sweet: Honeycomb in Garden & Gun's wedding gift guide

    We are pleased that our Honeycomb Honey Jar from the Country Collection was featured in Garden & Gun's wedding season gift guide, in the April-May 2018 issue.

     

    Touted as a collection of "gifts [that] complete the Southern trousseau", this gift guide presents a survey of the best of things needed to set up a new home, from lovely bed linens and china, to more uniquely Southern items like a very large hammered-steel ice tub and a Charleston rice spoon.

     

    The Honeycomb Honey Jar comes in a delightful shade of amber glass, and it features a cute engraved bee perched on its lid.  Such a pleasing vessel for serving honey, preserves, or even sugar (shhhh.... don't tell the bees).  This honey jar makes a wonderful hostess gift as well. So sweet!

  • Taking wing: Camilla HB Tumblers in Victoria

    Butterflies are the theme of the "Favorite Things" feature in the March-April issue of Victoria.  Our Camilla High Ball Tumblers, with a delicate flower pattern that is engraved by hand, are the perfect juice glasses to complement the Anna Weatherly plates and Varga goblets adorned with a butterfly motif.  The simple yet elegant form of the Classic Juice Carafe from our Country Collection also graces this table.

     

    Entertaining with beautiful things elevates every occasion, even if it's merely Sunday brunch.  Incorporating items that are inspired by a given season (in this case, Spring) makes a table extra-special.  Make your next special occasion - or everyday meal - a beautiful one!

  • Mixing it up: Felicity, Rachel and Lulu advert in Veranda

    The theme of Veranda's March-April 2018 issue is "The New Mix: Great Style for Spring".  We find it fitting that our Rachel Carafe and Felicity Goblets & Wines appear in a wonderfully balanced Upper East Side townhouse with interiors by talented designer Ashley Whittaker.  As the accompanying text puts it, "Ashley Whittaker is all about the mix: the old with the new, the sleek with the rustic, the yin and yang of it all", a statement that is very much in line with William Yeoward's aesthetic.

     

    Color and pattern are very much at play in this townhouse, and the dining room is no exception.  The patterns of the Rachel Carafe and Felicity stemware subtly reference the antique chandelier as well the floral pattern on the dining chair backs.

     

    William Yeoward Crystal appears again in our advertisement on the inner back cover, across from the "Mood of the Moment" feature, this time entitled "Peacock Hues".  The blue, turquoise and green hues complement the Lulu barware in stunning Emerald.  Delightful!

  • Seeing double: Lulu barware makes two appearances in Flower

    Our recent reintroduction of Lulu barware made a real splash with retail buyers, editors, Instagram followers, and customers!

     

    Lulu now comes in two rich jewel tones, Emerald & Sapphire.  Flower's editors selected the Lulu Sapphire Martini Mixer to appear in their "In Bloom" market pages.  William Yeoward Crystal created an elegant advertisement for Lulu Emerald barware, which graced the back cover of the same issue.

     

    Lulu is a beautiful example of "case crystal", produced entirely by hand; the most interesting and painstaking part of the process occurs when the clear crystal is encased in the color, and then an artisan carefully removes the color where it is unnecessary for the pattern.  The result is gorgeous, has incredible depth of color and a wonderful textured ridging that feels great in the hand.  Consider adding these lovely jewel-toned glasses to your home bar!

  • Flower Fantasia during NYNOW

    We wanted to share some photos from the February 2018 NY NOW trade show.  We thought the flowers were exceptional at this show!

     

    Notable new introductions include the Juliet giftware pattern, shown in bowls and vases of various shapes.  The Juliet pattern is reminiscent of classic Greek doric columns, with its refined vertical lines and graceful details.  Also of note were two new Emerald pieces, a footed hurricane and a pair of candlesticks.

     

    We hope you enjoy these images!

  • Fanny featured in 5th Ave gem in Veranda

    Fanny Amber Goblets from our Country Collection are featured in the January-February issue of Veranda, the first issue dedicated entirely to New York City.

     

    Esteemed designer Ellie Cullman and her team at Cullman & Kravis created an Art Deco-inspired jewel box in two adjacent apartments which were merged together by architect John B. Murray.  Fanny Goblets are available in wonderful colors (as well as clear) to suit many settings and moods - in this case, the Amber color coordinates pleasingly with the gold light fixtures and the ochre and black of the Chinese antique cabinet and vases.

     

    A quote from Ellie Cullman reflects similarities between her design aesthetic and that of William Yeoward's: "Today we're always talking about the magic that happens when new meets old.  The new has to learn from the old and the old has to learn from the new. That mix makes interiors so much more vibrant and interesting."  We couldn't agree more!

  • Twice the fun: WYC featured at 41 Madison

    Two talented designers, Jon Call and Daun Curry, incorporated items from William Yeoward Crystal in their table designs for the 41 Madison Lobby, shown during the October Tabletop Show.  With a theme of Romeo and Juliet, Jon and Daun created tables that shared elements and mirrored each other in many ways - "his" and "hers" tablescapes.

     

    Jon and Daun drew inspiration from the dreamy backdrop panels, expertly made by the team at Alpha Workshops.  They selected large-scale pieces to create a dream-like atmosphere.  Jon's color theme was blue, and he used our Azzura Centerpiece Bowl and Azzura Pineapple, both limited edition pieces.  Daun's colors were more subdued, a grey palette, so she included our Clara Centerpiece Bowl and Isadora Pineapple with Silver leaves on her table.

     

    Thanks go to Jon and Daun for including us in their lovely designs, as well as to 41 Madison and Editor at Large, who helped to orchestrate this collaboration!
