"I like the idea of making a normal day beautiful"

Simple yet sweet tableware designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion, available at Chintz & Company in Victoria. She is best known for her award-winning recipes (especially her gourmet pies), but I adore her wonderful and whimsy kitchen pieces...
Beautifully designed porcelain cookware in crisp white, the pieces in the collection are a fine blend of antique heritage and zen serenity. They look splendid in any setting, and I love how her pieces serve multi-purposes... the mixing bowl in messy kitchen turns into elegant salad bowl in dining room.

"As a cook you have to love your ingredients, you need to touch and feel the food you are creating, putting some of your soul into every meal. I wanted to create a range of really tactile products that would incite the same feelings..."

Très bien... practical, elegant, and full of character!
