Utopia’s new Autumn Collection encompasses 62 new products to set the scene for a harvest tabletop.
Ceramics, cutlery and tableware accessories all pick up on the autumn hues of gold, red, mocha and cream.
Utopia’s new gold PVD Manhattan cutlery is designed to be a cost-effective way to add style to the table. The PVD (physical vapour deposition) coating is said to add the gold colour and durability to the cutlery. Other new cutlery items include the serrated edged Laguiole Steak Knives, suitable for meat eaters.
A large focus of the autumn launch is around the new mocha, red and cream colours introduced to Utopia’s Barista range of porcelain coffee mugs, cups and saucers. Barista is designed to create a stylish, contemporary feel in a specialist coffee shop or other café setting.
The trend for larger plates continues and Utopia has introduced one to the Futada collection from Japanese pottery producers. It is in the same mossy-grey colourway, the same subtle texture, but with more of it to enhance presentation.
Another large plate from the Japanese producers has been added to the Sendan collection. This plate has delicate lines from centre to edge reminiscent of a sea urchin’s spines.
Extensions to the Umbra give a larger version of the irregular bowl and a 45 x 20cm platter are suitable for the sharing trends across all areas of the eating out market. The Umbra boasts a light finish with dappled brown rims.
While the Dusky, a new range of vitrified porcelain plates, features a warm crackle glaze, framed with a semi-matt border to create a canvas for chefs to present signature dishes.
