The Performer Placemat
Full of eccentricities and hiding dark secrets, The Performer is inspired by the enchanting & vibrant Edie Sedgewick, infamous socialite and muse to Andy Warhol. Touted a “Youthquaker” by Vogue, Edie was a bright social butterfly whose candle of fame burned brightly at both ends.
Andy was the boy who didn’t like what he saw when he gazed into the pool, and thus was doomed, in a permanent state of unfulfilled desire. Edie’s method of seduction was to chop-off her dark hair, bleach it so that it matched his wig, and dress herself in the striped boatnecked shirts that had become his uniform. In one fell swoop she turned herself into the reflection of his dreams. At long last—oh, rapture! oh, ecstasy!—Andy's self-love was requited.
LDC placemats and coasters are a true labor of love. Each and every one has been hand-finished with a gold-leaf edge and a beautifully soft, black baize backing.
This placemat has been crafted using a sustainably sourced eucalyptus base and features a full melamine surface. It can withstand temperatures of up to 140 degrees and is easily wiped clean.
