Sunny, expressive tableware, for impromptu feasts with friends and family. Feast by Ottolenghi and Serax - Available online, and in our Cotswold store from mid-June.

I've been around the tableware business for 30 years and my preference to date has definitely been towards a simple white china canvas for my bounty.

But this. Wow! This is so new & clever, colourful & bold, and most importantly joyful.  The collection me salivate just looking at it, even before Ottolenghi's delicious recipes (or my appalling attempt at them) are layered on top.

Full of charms and mysteries, this icon has pushed boundaries since its creation by the Ateliers de la Ville de Paris in 1923. Through summer and winter, this poetic object has been a part of the Parisian landscape for nearly a century – a character in search of its author. Originally named SENAT, this famous chair has now been let out of the gates of the “Luco” and conquered the world, ever since its celebrated reinvention into the LUXEMBOURG chair: a reinvention executed by Frédéric Sofia in 2003 for the French company Fermob.
