Neiman Marcus builds home with new Lela Rose tabletop collection, exclusively online

Neiman Marcus' upcoming Lela Rose tabletop collection marks the fashion designer's first collaboration in the home category and will be available exclusively at

In partnership with Neiman Marcus, Rose created a special tabletop collection that includes a white lace and linen napkin and placemat set ($100) as well as a set of four assorted dessert plates ($135). Each dessert plate in the set features a design inspired by master chef Ferran Adrià's complex approach to food.

The fashion designer's runway collection, seen Sunday during Fashion Week, was inspired by food. In interviews, Rose praised Adrià's cooking as the inspiration for the apparel collection.

"Entertaining is woven into my lifestyle, so creating a tabletop collection is a natural extension," said Rose. "I am inspired by Adrià's artistic approach to food; each piece I designed reflects the energy and creativity in his masterpieces. This collaboration allowed me to apply my design philosophy of mixing color and texture to tabletop for the first time."

"We are proud to be partnering with Lela Rose on this collection," said Gerald Barnes, chief merchant, Neiman Marcus Direct. "Neiman Marcus has always felt that art enhances the quality of people's lives and so it seemed natural that we would collaborate with Lela on this collection."
