Make eating a real pleasure by giving your food and drink the tableware it deserves. From quick breakfasts to big family dinners, our quality-crafted stone and porcelain tableware are the perfect food for the soul.
All too often we take eating for granted, grabbing a quick bite on the go, at our desk or in front of the TV but the meals we enjoy best are those when we dine in style. But that doesn’t have to be a special occasion. With the right tableware, from crockery to cutlery, glassware to serving dishes, we can enhance any meal. Our range of stone and porcelain ware is both superb quality and stylish, and when combined with an equally elegant cutlery set from our range, you can create a table to be proud of. Of course, it works all the better if the place where you eat is stylish too, so check out our selection of dining tables and dining chairs.
Your choice of tableware should reflect the overall feel and design aesthetic of your dining space. For example, if you have a modern dining room set made using clean lines and contemporary designs, you need an equally modern dinner set. A hand-crafted stoneware dinner set from our range looks at home on any modern table but also carries a retro charm. Match your tableware in terms of colour too, using accent colours from soft furnishings such as curtains and rugs to create a dining room where it’s a pleasure to eat.
Setting the table for breakfast, lunch or dinner has an element of the ritual. Preparing your space to eat can elevate your food to the next level. But it’s not just about the tableware. You also need to get the mood right with lighting and dining room furniture. Of course, your tableware will not always be set out on the table, so you might need some suitable and convenient storage and shelves to keep it safe and clean when not in use.
The key is finding the right balance. You need enough tableware for the food you’re serving, laid out in a convenient and aesthetically pleasing way. But you don’t want to overdo it. Even if you’re hosting a special dinner party, less can be more. Try to use colour to your advantage and make sure your table looks uniform.
The four main types of tableware you will find on a well-dressed table are serveware, dinnerware, flatware and drinkware. You need to have the right combination of all four to meet all your dining needs.
It’s as important as you want it to be. But setting the table for any meal can help to elevate the food you are serving and improve the dining experience.
