DUTCHIE has a new release which is featured at THE LIAISON COLLABORATIVE, the Tea Dome De Vecht is now view-able in world at the event.
From the 17th century, rich Amsterdam merchants fled the busy city to their country estates along the river De Vecht. It was a matter of status to build a tea dome, a small octagonal building with a domed roof and many large windows.
These cottages were build on the most beautiful spots near the river, well to be admired from the water. The owners enjoyed the view of all that happened on the river. And through the large windows, the passers watched the owners, drinking their costly tea in their delicate china cups.
