"This lidded ceramic dish hails from Asia, and we think it might have once belonged to Puyi, the last emperor of China, who kept his pet frog, Hortense, within this delicate confine. Now the Madcap Cottage gents cannot confirm this provenance, but isn't that just a lovely vision of a boy emperor with his frog and dish before he was forced to abdicate and then work in a factory with the proletariat population? That was not really a question, it was rhetorical.”

John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny’s antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian élan. "If you are looking for beige and boring,” says Jason, "go bark up someone else’s tree.”
