The House of Portmeirion and Spode hosted an introduction for some of their latest launches in London recently.    

Featuring an impressive showcase of Artisanne Noir – the latest Portmeirion collection from Sara Miller – guests were treated to a stunning tablescape inspired by the exotic but relaxed style of dining from Morocco and the Middle East. With four different mix and match patterns – Bohemia, Lotus, Paisley, and Mandala – Artisanne Noir has been designed to work as a cohesive table yet each pattern is equally as striking on its own. The monochrome collection is embellished with gold detailing.

The Spode brand, meanwhile, has plenty to talk about. First and foremost, an exciting new collaboration with the iconic Morris & Co brand – a glorious nod to both maximalism and country chic with a very on-trend colour palette. Designed to be mixed and matched, the collection is also bolstered with a range of linens. Eleanor Tyerman, senior licensing designer for Sanderson Design Group which manages the Morris & Co brand, was also on-hand to answer any questions guests had about the collaboration between these two iconic British brands.

Fittingly, Spode is celebrating King Charles III’s Coronation with a commemorative collection. The pieces are decorated with leaves and scrolls taken from archive patterns intertwined with roses, shamrocks, thistles, and daffodils to create a beautiful border. There is a commemorative earthenware plate along with a mug, teapot, sugar bowl, cream jug, teabag tidy and coaster – everything you might need for an afternoon tea to celebrate the Coronation on 6 May.
