Each copper bowl has been hand-formed into its delicately thin form, resulting in a product that is always varied and individual with a personal touch. Tom Dixon’s designs are always guaranteed to bring a touch of extravagance to any space, whilst still remaining elegant.
Each ibride design is as mystical and enchanting as the next, with every product telling its own individual story. The ibride Bianca The Governess Tray is intricate, decorative and highly durable and can be hung on the wall as a piece of art after you have finished using it as a serving tray at Christmas.
Whether you decide to use one as a display tray for a candle or several in succession for serving drinks and small bowls of snacks, the Hay Kaleido Trays will become the focal point of any dining table. Mix and match different sizes and colours for a variety of bright and cheerful geometric configurations.
If you’re looking for something less extravagant, this simple tray is perfect for serving drinks and condiments or displaying smaller decorative items as a sophisticated centrepiece.
This beautiful lime and maple wood candleholder can be arranged in a variety of different positions, whether it’s stretched out long and thin, tied into a circle or curved into random bends and flicks. The space for four candles makes this candleholder ideal for Advent, meaning it can also be utilised before the big day.
Copper and marble are popular materials of choice and this elegant candle holder from Menu utilises both. A rich, warm glow reflects in the copper top of the Menu Chunk of Marble Candle Holder when the candle burns down, making it the perfect accessory for setting a cosy atmosphere. The Iittala Allas Candle Holder offers a fresh Scandinavian interpretation of the traditional candelabra and would suit a variety of interiors.
This versatile design from Menu can transform from a minimalist tray for drinks and snacks to a comfortable stool for additional seating around the dining table. If you’re feeling lucky, simply sign up to our newsletter by the end of November for the chance to win the Flip Around in Light Ash!
