The first Monsoon Home Kitchen Collection by Denby has been released. With a decidedly strong designer look but extremely contemporary as well, the collection comprises of two styles, Antalya and Cordoba.
Beautiful, stylish and incredibly versatile, the collection is not just practical but also durable, so it can be used time and time again, still looking as amazing as it did the first time it was taken from it’s box. Antalya is a gorgeous selection of kitchen items that are decorated with stunning aqua and rich dark blue in a lovely floral pattern that speaks to the warmer months of Spring and Summer. Cordoba is a perfect companion to Antalya with a fabulous rich navy blue that is enhanced and brought to life by the striking mustard yellow, leaving the collection with a vintage edge. Both parts of the range at Monsoon have an effortless feel of the Moroccan about them, whilst remaining exceedingly English. A paradox but one that works well fusing traditional elements from both countries. Dinnerware, storage and jugs are all included in the range, meaning there is something available to suit everyone’s tastes and indeed pockets, with prices starting at as little as £6 for a saucer!
Our top picks were certainly difficult to decide upon, but we have to declare out love for the Jerez Pedestal Cake Stand. It is clean, crisp, fresh and beautiful. Perfect for displaying those lovingly made cakes when you have company over. The splash of colour from the yellow livens up the design and gives it a real summer feel. The stand comes in two pieces, the plate and the stand. Very well made, the quality is evident from first glance. The Jerez Pedestal Cake Stand is available for £30.
We also have a definite fondness for the Antalya Pitcher. Reminiscent in style of vintage pitchers, it would fit right in with a modern kitchen, given the pattern. The pitcher is beautiful and sleek, with a sense of English gardens about it and cool summer evenings. Available for £25.
It has to be said that we also favour the cake tins and oven gloves, but as we said the decisions are difficult to make given the entire collection from Denby for Monsoon is beautiful!
