We always love seeing how you use our ibbi products and this month huge thanks to Jo Harrison who got in touch to show us how she’d used her ibbi star door knobs, to give a new lease of life to a tired coffee table. We absolutely love what you’ve done Jo!
Upcycled by Jo Harrison: how fresh dark stormy paint and our ibbi star inlay door knobs from Rajasthan have stunningly transformed this coffee table
Whether you’re at home in the garden, or on the beach this Summer, it’s such fun to create a Summer table heaving with patterns, plants, fresh flowers and a rich mix of textures. Here we’ve chosen just a few of our current favourite products from our collections which we think will add the perfect finishing touches to your Summer table:
Vintage Rajasthani Cups: from £22.00. Made for bunches of fresh summer flowers
These vintage gems, once used for sipping the traditional Indian yoghurt drink, were found across the markets of Rajasthan. Etched with elaborate patterns, these brass and silver vessels look stunning individually and beautiful grouped together. Display down the centre of your table, filled with sweet peas and cornflowers for a perfect colourful Summer touch.
Hand block printed napkins: made to mix and match: £20 per set of 4
Our tablecloths and napkins are all hand block printed in Jaipur and the vibrant colours and intricate designs are made to mix and match. Create a fresh look by mixing patterns with plain linens too. Bright plain coloured linen napkins from your own collection will sit beautifully alongside these traditional Rajasthani designs.
Standing Star Lanterns add gentle candlelight and are so pretty when dining outdoors: from £29.95
It’s simply always better by candlelight! and candles, however displayed, create the perfect intimate mood. We love an eclectic mix of candlesticks and different shaped lanterns down the centre of the table to create a unique individual style. These standing star lanterns in brass and glass are a fabulous addition to any table and it really doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a modern or more traditional look. They’re equally at home in both!
Colourful ramekins: £12.50 each. Perfect for nibbles, dipping sauces and small puds
From small ramekins to large salad bowls and platters, our bold, hand painted ceramics will add a wonderful splash of colour to any table. And whatever shape or colour you chose, these pieces always sit beautifully together.
Glass Tea Sets
Assam Tea Sets: perfect for tea, fresh fruit cordials and of course chilled rosé! £34.95 at ibbi
We love these tea sets, made in Rajasthan: the perfect accessory we think for your dining table. Ideal on Sunday evenings when you’re enjoying lazy drinks and supper with friends. Absolutely perfect for fresh elderflower cordial or a glass of well deserved chilled rosé after a hard day’s work in the garden!
So: according to the press, as we mentioned in our blog back in October, we’re currently abandoning our neutral palettes and throwing a casual splash more colour and pattern in to our homes. Hurrah! Vibrant cushions, richly coloured rugs and striking accessories are all selling like hot cakes and that probably goes to explain why our most utterly loved extra colourful hand painted ceramics are flying off the ibbi shelves right now. Hand crafted, gorgeous colours and each piece unique: do get in touch if you’d like to see more of our current collection. Product sourcing service available too.
