THE WEDGWOOD EDITION: MEET YOUR FAVOURITE NEW DINNERWARE

Your crash course on setting a modern table - and making classics, beautiful.

October 9, 2018

This Spring, we are delighted to collaborate with Wedgwood, one of the greatest luxury brands in the world, to transform our very own table with its latest collections that let nature set the tone in an exciting and visceral way – truly capturing the mood at large.  

There are all kinds of exciting new looks that explore nature, starting with the dinnerware of the moment, Gio. A beautiful white design reimagined for the modern home, that is driven from a platform of beauty and relevance with an intaglio border.

L-R: Gio Soup/Cereal Bowl 16cm, $24.95, Gio dinner plate 28cm, $24.95, Gio teapot, $159, White Folia vase 30cm, $129, Blue Pebble Bowl 24.5cm $349 (with lemons), Globe red wine glass, set of two, $99.95, White Folia Rose Bowl Vase 13cm, $99.95, Blue Pebble Shallow Bowl 19cm, $199 and Vera Wang Bande 16 Piece Set Cutlery $199.

Then there’s Blue Pebble platters, bowls and vases with organic abstractions of nature and approaches to a pattern that feels totally now. Inspired by organic and natural textures, Blue Pebble features random biomorphic shapes of nature – with each unique piece adding an extra layer of individuality, authenticity, and character to your table made from Wedgwood’s legendary Jasperware.

L-R: Gio Soup/Cereal Bowl 16cm $24.95 each, Gio dinner plate 28cm, $24.95, Gio Teapot, $159, White Folia vase 30cm, $129, Blue Pebble Bowl 24.5cm, $349 (with lemons), Globe red wine glass, set of two, $99.95, White Folia Rose Bowl Vase 13cm, $99.95, Blue Pebble Shallow Bowl 19cm, $199 and Vera Wang Bande 16 Piece Set Cutlery $199.

Also, White Folia vases that make flowers look right, everytime. The classic range, made in England from fine bone china, has a subtle floral pattern, that suits most styles and settings, and comes in four shapes and sizes. You’ll find them ideal for piling with lush Spring arrangements of blossom, daffodils, hellebores, rosemary or big bunches of leaves from the garden.

But perhaps most interesting of all is the British brand’s diversity. No matter how big or small your table, you can create a beautiful setting with these looks.

L-R: Vera Wang Bande Cutlery 16 piece set, $199, Gio Dinner Plate 28cm, $24.95, Blue Pebble Vase 15cm (with rosemary), $349, Blue Pebble Shallow Bowl 19cm, (with apple), $199,, Blue Pebble Bowl 13cm, $249, Globe red wine glass, set of two, $99.95, Gio Pasta Bowl, 23cm, $24.95 and Gio Serving Bowl 28cm, $119.

To get the look of our table, start with Gio white tableware classics which always work as a base set. They are a simple yet glam focal point as well as being strong enough for everyday use and graceful enough for special occasions, plus make food look delicious.

Try coordinating and contrasting with Blue Pebble bowls and platters or a few knockout floral Wonderlust plates or teacups, to create your own stunning Spring setting that will take you into Summer and the holiday season. Just finish with White Folia vases for height, confidence, and elegance. After all, your family and friends might not remember the three courses you didn’t serve, but they will remember the beautiful table setting.

Even if all you’re serving is something simple, great dinnerware like this will make it seem like so much more.
