From ultramodern dinnerware to a glorious, vintage-look tea set, today’s edition of Friday Favourites has a little bit of everything.
Every week on the Peter’s Blog, we select five new arrivals to profile in depth. They’re the things we think are way too good to be missed. After all, so many new products arrive here at Peter’s every week. Consider our Friday Favourites posts your inside guide to the best of the best, as curated by those who know their stuff…
Let’s take a look at this week’s Friday Favourites.
What do you get when you cross two famous designer brands from opposite sides of the globe? You get some of the most distinctive dinnerware, tableware and more you’ve ever seen, that’s what! Just launched, the Iittala X Issey Miyake collection is truly original. Make sure you take a look at the entire range – but if you want to know our favourite piece from the entire collection, it’d have to be the creamy pink hexagonal plates. They’re so futuristic and funky – the shape of things to come!
Ooh, a stylish lunchbox for adults? Yes please! Why should kids have all the fun, anyway? Designed in London, Black+Blum’s Box Appetit lunchboxes will make lunch break your favourite part of the working day. Its design was inspired by vintage enamelware, and it’ll make even the daggiest sandwich look a million bucks. Inside, there’s a removable divider, so you can take two different kinds of food along if you wish. It’s leak-proof, microwave safe and dishwasher safe – and, most importantly, it’ll turn heads in the staff lunch room. With plenty of sizes and even a cute matching thermos available, make sure you check out the whole range!
Cook, restaurateur and food writer, Stephanie Alexander loves spending time in the garden almost as much as she loves spending time in the kitchen – that’s why she started her Kitchen Garden Foundation back in 2001. When most famous cooks design their own range of products, they tend to stick to one thing, whether it’s cookware or dinnerware or kitchen goodies. But the Stephanie Alexander collection is something truly different. It’s an eclectic range that includes everything from serving bowls to garden trowels and so much more – the perfect reflection of Stephanie’s love of cooking and gardening. We think this set of basic kitchen tools is the ideal way to start your collection. Each piece has beechwood handles and will look great in a jar on your kitchen bench.
Some vases are so spectacular, they steal all the attention away from your flowers. Others aren’t afraid to let your flowers do all the talking…but they’re so plain you wouldn’t take any notice of them if they weren’t filled with flowers. LSA’s new Molten Cube Vase is a happy medium – a vase that’s just as lovely as freshly cut flowers, that still looks good when it’s displayed on its own. It’s hand crafted from a vibrant blue glass – and then there’s its contemporary rounded profile. We’re impressed!
There’s nothing like a cup of tea enjoyed in a Royal Albert teacup. The 100 Years collection is a celebration of a century of Royal Albert elegance, with ten different designs, each representing Royal Albert’s most popular pattern during every decade of the twentieth century. Our favourite would have to be Spring Meadow, from the 1920s. These delicate flowers in soft pastel shades have totally won us over…but if you’re not a fan, there are nine other vintage designs to choose from!
