Creating prints of watercolor paintings featuring cheerful patterns and colorful designs from artists like Camilla Moss, Lucy Grymes has turned paper products into works of art. Chic paper placemats in a variety of colorful patterns take the stress out of spills and the option to personalize is a wonderful way add a more formal flare. Ingenious paper wraps fit around everyday drinking glasses, instantly transforming them into a decorative vases. Put these two things together and you suddenly have a cohesive, bespoke tablescape in a moment’s notice. If this weren’t wonderful enough, clean up is a breeze- no more washing and pressing placemats or hand washing vases. Plus, you find a paper placemat pattern you can’t bear to throw away, you can always order a laminated set which can simply be wiped down at the end of the night.
Not only are Lucy Grymes paper products beautiful, they are also further a good cause. Lucy Dean has partnered with N Street Village, a non-profit organization offering aid and empowerment to homeless women in the Washington D.C., area, and employs women from their organization to fold her vases. There is nothing quite like hand made products, especially when they are made with hope and care.
