The Capsule Collection from Hillary Taylor X The CEH
By Sophie Phelps

Since I blog about interior design, I see new furniture collections all the time. Therefore, I don’t say it lightly when I say I’ve never seen a bespoke furniture collection more beautiful that the newly released capsule collection from Hillary Taylor and The CEH. The collection is comprised of five exquisitely curated pieces that are all handcrafted by CEH artisans and have subtle neoclassical references. No detail is overlooked from elegant scallops to chic column legs and the entire collection is available to both the trade and non-trade, which is such a breath of fresh air!

Hillary Taylor

Hillary Taylor is one of my favorite interior designers and is also the interior designer I’ve recently hired to help me with my own house! If you want to see more of her work, I wrote a blog post featuring work a few years ago HERE.

Taylor is know for her lighthearted and meaningful interior spaces and the furniture in this collection with The CEH are a beautiful reflection of her strong understanding of balance, line, scale and rhythm. Each capsule piece is a statement of its own, yet they all compliment each other harmoniously when together in a singular space. I personally have my eyes on the Monceau Console and Scalloped Table and would love to hear what piece is your favorite! These are the types of pieces that are the furniture investments you will never regret and will bringing beauty and joy to your home for years to come.


The Monceau console is on of the most classically scaled pieces in the capsule. Hillary named it “after the famed Parc Monceau, which has a curved colonnade of similarly styled columns to the legs on the console.”
Hand-carved pine with a slab of marble, offers versatility and modern practicality to any room, however we particularly like it as a statement piece in an entry, or behind a tufted sofa.


The “Scalloped Table” offers a whimsical nod to the Edwardian, a piece we believe layers well with family heirlooms in casual family spaces and more formal sitting areas of the home.


The “Mr. B” Table is a nod to a special piece Hillary purchased at a Mario Buatta auction, a petite table perfect to pull up to a sofa with a laptop for those working from home.

“I love Neoclassical elements in design because they set a comfortable framework for living. Classical scale and proportion lend a gravitas- but also a sense of comfort in any living space”



Custom Upholstered Room Divider

The room divider of my dreams!

The Mr. B Screen is an undeniable “wow” factor, providing a room with immediate intrigue and height. I comes in 5 fabrics for upholstery options, or the customer may provide their own.


The Bow Front Side Table features rectilinear early Anglo-American-inspired lines with ample storage for those pesky remotes, finished in a dark chocolate stained maple.

It’s no secret that every piece of furniture @theceh makes is gorgeous, but we needed to rave about them today for a different reason. Have you been following their stories lately? We have been so inspired and humbled by their dedication to their customers that we had to share…

Last month their delivery driver quit mid-delivery with no notice. For weeks now, Diana and Justin, the owners of @theceh have been driving cross country with their children, personally delivering the remaining pieces to make sure customers get everything in time.
