Pastel Ceramics for the Breakfast Table

Breakfast Ceramics by Petite Friture

This collection of mix-and-match tableware was designed by Mark Braun for Petite Friture, a design studio based in Paris which aims to bring little-known designers to prominence. There’s a mug, espresso cup, dinner plate, side plate, cereal bowl and large serving bowl in three pastel colours: lavender, coral and a sunny yellow (by far my favourite!). They’re named ‘Join’ after the point at which the terracotta bottom touches the glazed top – a line which is exaggerated on the cups and bowls by a sharp bend in the clay.

Everything is deliberately shaped in way that allows it to be easily stacked and stored, which is a blessing for those of us without much cupboard space – so long as they also stack easily with the tableware you already own, of course. As someone with several awkwardly-shaped serving dishes which can’t fit into my tableware cupboard, I kinda wish I’d planned ahead a bit better when choosing them.

UK (and some EU) readers can get their hands on these at Clippings; for everyone else there’s a list of local distributors on this page of the Petite Friture website. Prices start at £11 for the espresso cup.

Lucy started writing Decorenvy as a scrapbook to record ideas when she began decorating her own place in 2013. Her frustration at the lack of alternatives to high street brands and catalogue decorating has since seen it evolve into a sourcebook for unusual and interesting design, complete with tours of beautiful homes and the occasional ill-advised DIY project.

bored of the high street.
