There are some exciting tableware ranges out in the market ranging from modern takes on traditional patterns and earthy organic shapes and colours to simple unfussy designs that still give the wow-factor. There is no point cooking up a storm in the kitchen and serving your creations on uninspiring tableware! Here are some ideas…
The Manufacture Desert Rock range by Villeroy & Boch is made from premium porcelain and is dishwasher and microwave safe (www.villeroyboch.com).
The porcelain Kintsugi range by Seletti is a celebration of broken objects – which is the meaning of the word “Kintsugi” in Japanese. This range is unique and will certainly be a talking point at the table, with its delicate porcelain pieces fused together with gold adding a touch of splendour to what typically would be considered as “damaged goods” (www.seletti.it).
These vintage plates have unique illustrations and gilt gold detailing. Ideal for an afternoon tea party or even mounted on a wall like a work of art. Available from Riel’s World situated in the Ibermaison showroom in C. de Negocios Oasis in Marbella (www.rielsworld.es).
This new tableware range by Zara Home is simplistic in its design but the uneven edges give it an appealing organic form (www.zarahome.com).
Oliver Bonas’ Viina Lustre range has a scalloped texture with a pearlescent finish, giving the beautiful tableware collection a wonderfully luxurious look (www.oliverbonas.com).
