DESIGNS ON YOUR TABLEWARE
Designer labels are no longer just for trendy clothing. Now, if you are looking for an item by Jasper Conran, Monique LHuillier or John Rocha, it could just as easily be a piece of china or glassware. Stylish fashion has come to the table in the form of teapots, candlesticks, cocktail glasses, plates and bowls.
Contemporary ranges of tableware are available to suit just about every style of home decor. But if you still cannot find a pattern you like, you could always commission your own design.
JASPER CONRAN CHINOSERIE TABLEWARE
Jasper Conran's decidedly 21st-century collection for Wedgwood recalls the Chinese porcelains which were to inspire English ceramic designers in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Available as Green or White Chinoiserie, each featuring flowers, foliage and birds. The vibrant green Chinoiserie is edged with platinum and goes particularly well with Jasper Conran's Platinum collection or his original white collection.
