A mid-century home renovation in Canada and an oversized thatched-roof home in Ukraine feature in our latest lookbook highlighting 10 homes with interiors that make use of pottery and decorative ceramics.
Ceramics were a focus at this year's Milan design week, where French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created an installation that featured pastel-hued ceramic sculptures.
Luxury brand Off-White also unveiled a collection of ceramic homewares for the design week that was informed by architecture and the natural world.
In this lookbook, we have highlighted a number of projects from the Dezeen archive that centre on decorative ceramics and pottery – including floor-to-ceiling shelving adorned with pots and vessels as well as open-faced cabinetry filled with ceramic kitchen and tableware.
This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen's archive. For more inspiration see previous lookbooks residential bathrooms, bedroom balconies and French doors.
Furnishings and cabinetry were organised sparingly throughout the home. A narrow, rectangular shelving unit was lightly populated with a collection of vessels, ceramics and objects, which juxtaposes against the home's restrained interior.
House for a Ceramic Designer is a low lying concrete home that was designed by Slovenian practice Arhitektura d.o.o. It features a number of living spaces that are connected to the owner's ceramic studio.
Arhitektura d.o.o lined one of the rooms with steel shelving units, which have been used to display ceramic works, much like the walls of a gallery. A wooden desk was oriented toward floor-to-ceiling windows that stretch across the entirety of the garden-facing wall.
Canadian studio Scott & Scott brightened up the interior of this mid-century home near Vancouver by incorporating a minimalist interior scheme that features wooden surfaces, white-washed walls and exposed cabinetry.
A collection of ceramics, tableware and vessels sits within and on top of exposed cabinetry, work surfaces and shelving, adding a rustic look to the home.
Located in a former industrial area in the north of Amsterdam, i29 designed this apartment to include double-height shelving units, bespoke glass vitrines and plenty of storage space to display and accommodate the owner's book and art collections.
A large thatched-roof tops this home in Ukraine that was designed by architect and designer Sergey Makhno for his own family. Makhno looked to Japan when creating Shkrub, incorporating Japanese design and architectural elements throughout.
In the living room, floor-to-ceiling shelving built from salvaged wood has been lined with Makhno's own ceramic collection, mimicking the form of a nearby sculptural fireplace.
Titled The Box, this home is located in the town of Valparaiso in Indiana. The home was designed with a focus on the views overlooking its surrounding wetland.
Its wood-lined interiors were created to reference the building's untouched, natural surroundings. Doors were removed from wooden cabinetry and shelves in order to display collections of baskets, pottery and books.
The kitchen was extended across the home's former side alley and fitted with rows of skylights that adjoin oak-lined storage walls used to display an assortment of the owner's ceramics, glassware and pictures.
Much like the wooden-clad exterior, the interior was lined with plywood while shelving and furnishings were crafted from scavenged wood and adorned with Lee's ceramics, which fill the walls and floors of the shed.
The kitchen has an open-plan design and has been organised around a single row of cabinetry that houses its sink, oven and appliances. Two rows of shelving were placed above the sink and work surfaces and used to display sculptural tableware and ceramics.
An oversized wooden pegboard stretches across one wall of the studio apartment, crossing the bedroom and kitchen, and holds a number of decorative objects, paintings, books and vessels.
