Founded in 2011 by designer Melanie Roseveare, Melody Rose is an award winning brand known for high quality, contemporary bone china tableware and luxurious homeware with an elegant twist.
In February 2020, Melody Rose won the prestigious Tableware International Award of Excellence 2020. Finalists in 19 categories were honoured for their exceptional talents, which was judged by a panel of 27 industry experts from retailers to designers. The awards are bestowed to outstanding products, with the ‘A Rake’s Progress’ being chosen as the winner of the Licensed Collaboration category. The judges loved the unique designs and exquisite craftsmanship and commented that it was “a perfect design”.
In February 2019, the Melody Rose collaboration with The Hepworth Wakefield Gallery’s Lee Miller Tea Set won the ACE Award 2019 for Best Product Range and 2019 Award for Best Overall Range.
Melanie’s early work focussed on marrying the unexpected with the traditional; images that shocked and pleased in equal measure; pretty upcycled vintage Victoriana china with tantalising imagery, the juxtaposition of quaint and quirky. Designed in a direct response against the growing trend for Fast Fashion, these unique pieces quickly established Melody Rose as highly covetable, garnering acclaim in the UK and internationally. A brand was born.
Now, Melody Rose produces its own fine bone china range in Stoke-on-Trent. Each piece is handmade, keeping at its heart the tremendous quality that has made Britain renowned for its ceramic heritage. Designed to be used every day and to last a life time, sustainability and quality are at the forefront of the Melody Rose design ethos. Durable enough for everyday use, the hand burnished gilding and glorious detail of each piece make them perfect for the grandest occasions, while the quirky imagery keeps them firmly 21st Century.
Autumn 2018 saw the launch of the unique collection of textiles including a range of plush and luxurious velvet cushions complete with handmade golden tassels to finish and a collection of four beautiful tea towel designs.
