The New Tablescape Collections
Muzungu Sisters tableware collection
London-based slow fashion brand Muzungu Sisters – helmed by Tatiana Santo Domingo and Dana Alikhani – is known for its ethically sourced, artisan-made luxury goods. Now the label has translated its stylishly conscious ethos into a covetable new tablescaping collection, the first for the brand. Featuring beautiful embroidered table linens handmade in Mumbai, hand-painted plates and delicate glassware created in collaboration with Laguna B in Murano, the pieces have been crafted by a handful of artisans from around the globe. Emblazoned with delicate flowers and mushrooms – the brand’s signature motif – each of the pieces has been designed to be mixed and matched to create a joyously playful tablescape.
Polkra x Hot Pottery
When it comes to cool new tablescaping ideas, Polkra never puts a foot wrong. Case in point: their new tablescape collaboration with Hot Pottery, who have brought their signature “splatter” design to table linen for the first time. Available in lilac, electric blue and smoke green, the linen tablecloths and napkin sets have been designed to be mixed and matched to bring a touch of flair to your spring table. Originally hailing from Puglia, where the design is hand painted by a local Puglian artisan, the “splatter” is then digitally printed onto Polkra’s long-lasting flax fibre linen, ready to add a sense of la dolce vita to your spring table.
Launching May 2023
Mrs Alice Lake Como collection
Alice Naylor-Leyland’s online boutique is a one-stop-shop when it comes to tablescape ideas – this is the place to come for everything from elegant tablecloths and scalloped placemats to whimsical animal-themed decorations. Her latest tablescape range, the Lake Como collection, is a glorious ode to summer in Italy, featuring cheery yellow striped tablecloths, crisp white linen placemats embroidered with mimosa bouquets and raffia water glasses. Finish off with a few of her green parrot candle holders and fiore porcelain napkin rings and you’re guaranteed to have the prettiest (and most Instagram-worthy) spring table around.
La Double J Napoli collection
When it comes to maximalist tablescaping, nobody does it quite like La Double J. The exuberant love of colour that their fashion collections are so well known for translates perfectly to their tableware pieces, where rainbow-hued dinner plates sit alongside outrageously patterned tablecloths. For spring they’re launching their new Napoli collection, an ode to Naples’ majestic mosaics and sun-baked frescoes. Punchy striped lemon-yellow linen tablecloths sit alongside romantic Verona-fired porcelain designs dreamt up wandering through the palazzos of Neapolitan nobility. The collection also features the brand’s first ever assortment of raffia accessories, imagined in chic tablemats, coasters and napkin rings.
Launching 15 April
David Hicks x Cabana
For their latest tableware range, Cabana has taken inspiration from renowned British decorator and tastemaker David Hicks, drawing in particular on the newly launched book David Hicks in Colour. Written by his son Ashley Hicks (who also happens to be the partner of Cabana founder Martina Mondadori), it’s a celebration of Hicks’ mastery of pattern and design, which can be seen in spades in the tableware collection. Archive prints such as the iconic Topkapi pattern and geometric Chevron design are splashed across tablecloths, while porcelain plates feature prints of diamonds and dashes. Put them together and you’ve got a colour-drenched feast for the senses.
Marni x Serax
Italian fashion house Marni has just announced that it is launching its first ever tableware collection, created in collaboration with Belgian design label Serax. Entitled ‘Midnight Flowers’, the 120-piece porcelain range is made up of asymmetrical plates, dishes, cups, saucers and teapots, all of which have been hand-illustrated with delicate botanical designs that call to mind the floral patterns ever present in Marni’s ready-to-wear collections. Decorated with colourful flowers and ethereal branches, the playful designs were envisioned by Marni’s creative director Francesco Risso and have been designed to capture the brand’s quirky elegance.
Launching August 2023
Summerill & Bishop Tulip collection
Cult homeware brand Summerill & Bishop are known for their show-stopping tablecloths, which has seen them collaborate with the likes of Claridge’s and London-based fashion label Shrimps. For spring they’ve launched their new Tulip collection, inspired by the rich, complex colours and elaborately curved and crimped petals of the distinctive flower. The collection features a tablecloth, available in three different sizes, and a matching napkin, which are all made out of 100% pure French linen. To celebrate the launch, they’ve teamed up with floral emporium Flowerbx to offer a limited-edition bunch of their specially sourced petal pink fringed tulips – the perfect addition to any spring table.
Rebecca Udall Spring collection
Known for specialising in fine European linens and curated artisan homewares, Rebecca Udall founded her eponymous brand in 2019 as a way to bring the treasures she found on the continent to the UK. For spring, that includes pastel gingham tablecloths with whimsy ruffles made from European grown flax, hand-woven abaca placemats, cabbage plates by Bordallo Pinheiro, a heritage manufacturer in Portugal, and scalloped crockery crafted by Italian artisans using age-old techniques. Despite the decades of skill and tradition that have gone into creating each piece, together they create a fresh and thoroughly modern spring table.
