Sophie Conran And Portmeirion
“…make every day a beautiful day”
Sophie Conran and Portmeirion have together created a beautiful collection of cookware, tableware and home accessories – all designed for modern day living. This award winning collection marries together Sophie’s love of food, design and family. Versatile and practical, it’s perfect for everything from elegant dinner parties to relaxed breakfasts.
“My kitchen is my workshop”
Sophie is a celebrated food writer, daughter of Sir Terence Conran and Caroline Conran. When she’s not looking after her two children, you’ll probably find her in the kitchen, testing out new recipes or cooking delicious feasts for her family.
“I believe in enjoying every moment and in creating a beautiful world around you and your family, with warmth, simplicity and love.”
“I want to use the same lovely things in the kitchen that I put on the table”
The Sophie Conran for Portmeirion collection is a beautiful, tactile oven-to-tableware and home accessories collection that is a joy to use every day. The rippled bodies and curved edges have the echo of the potters hand. Sophie’s love and respect for contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship harmonises perfectly with Portmeirion.
“I like to think that our collection has a soul, because each piece comes to life in my kitchen.”
“I love finding different ways to use things”
The collection is designed to be multi-functional – the oven-to-tableware pieces look as beautiful on the table as they are practical in the kitchen. Measuring jugs morph into serving pieces whilst the roasting dishes can take centre stage on the table. Each piece of porcelain is able to withstand the rigours of contemporary living, moving with ease from the dishwasher to the microwave, the freezer to the oven.
“I’ve designed pieces to be multi-functional and easy to handle, stack and store. Delicate to the touch, yet highly durable, each piece is able to withstand the hectic pace of modern life, from the largest platter to the smallest plate.”
The glassware is just as special: unique, handmade and individual. Perfect for a celebration or everyday, and it can be popped into the dishwasher after the party.
The distinctive home accessories ooze character, the tactile porcelain making them beautiful decorative items as well as practical home essentials.
“Exquisitely wrapped, unique, lasting gifts – always with love”
Every piece in the collection makes a sophisticated gift, with beautiful wrapping and eye-catching packaging. When given as a wedding present, the pieces take on new meaning, a perfect gift for a couple in love.
“All of the pieces in my collection make lovely wedding gifts to be cherished. From individual items like the comport, low casserole or large serving platter through to the candles, tea or dinner settings, there are so many beautiful pieces to have and to hold.”
