38 AT YOUR Alchemy dinner service designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber for de Gournay Interior designer J e f f r e y B i l h u b e r , a top colorist and all-American classicist, has won the adoration of Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, who hired Manhattan–based Bilhuber to design her country house. "Jeffrey is great at taking one's own taste and making it better," she later raved. Collaboration is Bilhuber's strong suit: His latest project is a porcelain dinner service created with wallpaper legend de Gournay. Designed by Bilhuber and handmade in Beijing's historic Imperial Jingdezhen studios, the 35-piece Alchemy collection has been added to de Gournay's permanent collection of wallpapers, fabrics, and porcelains. The dinnerware flirts on the edge of maximalism, with molten gold and vivid botanical motifs that reference full-bodied tulips in Dutch still-life paintings. Each limited-edition service is numbered; changes and customizations are encouraged. Six-place serving $45,000, through Culp Associates, Dallas Design Center, 1025 N. Stemmons Freeway, Suite 500, Rebecca Sherman SERVICE OBSESSION
