"The Madcap Cottage boys are simply mad for plaid, and you should be, too! We suggest throwing an all-plaid dinner party with the plaid plates and plaid cups and pitcher Hmm, but what to serve at an all-plaid party? Perhaps Scotch, and plenty of it. For Scotch is so much more sublime than haggis, n'est-ce pas? Plus, we have thrown in a glorious wood and wicker serving tray that seemingly hails from the Scottish Highlands, perchance Brigadoon. This set includes a tray, a pitcher, a serving plate, a serving dish, six cups, six saucers, six salad plates, six dinner plates, a sugar, and a creamer.
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their imaginative 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. “You only live once,” say the pair, channeling Mae West, “but if you do it right, once is enough.”
