The motif of vintage tablewares has been used by many different designers and companies over the years, such as in H&M's new vintage plate table runner. As usual, H&M have one strong advantage to their product – the extremely low price.
We’ve featured Olli and Lime’s nursery products here before (duvet covers, wallpaper and wall art) and I’ve always thought their designs are wasted just kept for children. So I’m pleased to see that they expanded to include two of their designs as Kitchen Collections.
George, a lime and milk chocolate flower-like design (pictured here) and Charlie, a darker brown and mustard circles pattern, are both available on a range of kitchen textiles. You can have your napkins (£25 for four) table runner (£35), tea towels (£15 for a pair) and apron (£25) all in matching fabric.
I’m hoping that more products will follow and I’d like to see their range extended to include grown-up sized bedding, but for now, you can buy their kitchen collection from the Olli and Lime website.
Olli and Lime are best known for their bright, retro-influenced designs for kids, such as the Egg Orange range we featured a little while back. They've also just moved into homewares, with two new kitchen ranges.
You can pick from the bold colours and patterns of the Charlie or the George design, both of which are also available for the nursery. The image shown is from the Charlie range which includes tea towels, napkins, aprons and table runners, in fact everything you need to match your kitchen to your kid!
Prices start at £15 for a tea towel.
