Europe boxes

This box was inspired by a pillow for sale at the marvelous gift shop at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. I wanted the pillow. I wanted so many things that I saw in that store, but money and space in the suitcase were both very tight. So I made a list of the colors in the pillow, and when I got home, I made this box.

I didn't want the dishes that were these colors as much as I wanted that pillow, but they were beautiful nonetheless. In my imagination I can furnish a compact, streamlined Danish kitchen with white cabinets, wooden trays for bread and cheese, a good coffee maker and six cups and saucers in carefully considered pastel colors.
