The goods are choice: a genius range of flatware, glasses, ceramics, and the domestic like, all perfectly priced, exquisitely finished, and impossible not to covet. “If you are relatively tiny, you can make everything as near perfect as you can get it,” says designer Coin Mellor, chief executive and the keeper of a decidedly contrarian flame.
“We don’t have any shops in the rest of the world, but we do sell to Simon Pearce and also Heath Ceramics, our biggest U.S. customer,” Coin says, adding, “We’re too understated for Europe.” More’s the pity, because the continent is missing out on desirable cutlery such as Empire, which the Ministry of Public Building and Works commissioned for diplomatic use in 1963, “to show abroad the quality of British silver design and manufacture,” a newspaper of the day reported. Today, it is made to order in silver or stainless steel (that version was used in diplomatic cafeterias), along with its attendant wine carafes, candlesticks, toast rack, and more.
Says the chief executive of the Provençal’s rebirth, “It feels good, and it works well.” Call it the David Mellor credo. When your job is to style and curate products around some of the world’s most beautiful interiors, you tend to have opinions about design.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has re-awoken to a profound truth: Rich, secure capitalists are the natural enemies of authoritarian regimes. Capital in the hands of entrepreneurs is a political resource; it poses a threat to the implementation of centralized plans. Realizing this, the CCP has begun to assert control over the private sector by “installing.
From 1921 to 1928, the Soviet Union instituted a policy of economic liberalization, which allowed for the privatization of agriculture, retail trade, and light industry. This partial and temporary return to a controlled and limited capitalism, known as the New Economic Policy (NEP), saved the Soviet economy from collapse and enabled Russia to modernize.
But, in 1928, Stalin suddenly reversed course: He collectivized agriculture and liquidated the most prosperous farmers, thereby necessitating the frequent resort to grain imports, notably from the United States. China’s own experiment with economic liberalization began in 1981, when Premier Deng Xiaoping began to decentralize and privatize economic activity while continuing to assert the ultimate authority of the CCP. But the freedom of action accorded to Chinese companies and executives is already being dramatically curtailed as Xi Jinping asserts explicit political control over the economy.
But whatever distance might have existed in the past between economic and political activity in China has disappeared as the party takes control of nominally independent companies. A number of Chinese state-backed companies, including some in strategically important industries, have begun to default on their debt obligations. As we wrote in a recent article, the CCP consistently treats western firms as adversaries to the sovereign interests of the PRC and uses all the tools at its disposal to target them.
