London Delft x Lovegrove & Repucci

Posted on May 13, 2008 Under Design

Just because you want to entertain in high style doesn't mean you have to break out your Grandma's bone china. If you're feeling the urge to get a little more classic with your tableware, but aren't into the floral designs you were subjected to every Thanksgiving, then New York-based design collaborative Lovegrove & Repucci have the answer.

Their freshly released London Delft collection is a play on the 18th century tradition of Dutch Delft porcelain. Building on the success of the previously launched New York Delft collection, this time around they've mixed the timeless, high-art vibe of the famous blue glazed dishes with a little London street art edge. Each setting is made up of five pieces: a dinner plate, side plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer, and are available for $100.

If the general coolness of the collection isn't enough to impress your design-savvy dinner partygoer, then just wait until they reach the bottom of their soup bowl and find a good "˜ol lorry. (For us non-Brits, that's a truck.)
