I am a huge fan of porcelain something about the texture, the purity of it. At first I thought it was just that I usually see it in white. I have come to find out that is not the case. Lladro is known the world over as being the Spanish Porcelain company, which has been creating beautiful sculptures for the home for over 50 years. I do own a couple of Lladro pieces that were given to me. They have not really been my style with flowery, romantic figurines and now sad to say I have given them away only to find out that they are indeed collectors’ items.
What caused me to revisit their website is the above lamp from their Estatos Collection which I found while perusing the Dwell On Design website. Much to my surprise I found a new look for Lladro, one which is more modern if not mod even retro. Here are a few things that caught my eye and let’s face it just like music and art I cannot say I like an entire body of work from any one artist/design house or even, nothing at all. I can usually find one objet d’art that speaks to me, a personal treasure, in almost every body of work.

Happy modern treasure hunting!
