Bringing summer style to your table
One of the most precious parts of summer is sitting down to delicious fresh food for long lazy meals with friends and family. At Shimu, our stunning tableware collections help to set the scene perfectly and are sure to give you that summertime feeling all year round.
Whether you’re enjoying a barbeque in the garden or sitting down to a meal in a sunny dining room, a beautifully laid dining table can really take your entertaining to a whole new level. Even if the British weather isn’t quite behaving, our beautiful tableware pieces are ideal for creating a lovely summer table. The collection spans from serving boards and platters to cups and mugs, so there are plenty of opportunities to bring our trademark sense of style to your mealtimes.
Some of our most versatile pieces are the Indigo Drop ranges from Nkuku. With delicate droplet patterns contrasting against cream ceramic, these pieces are subtle yet striking. Handmade in Vietnam, they are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe, making them perfect for summer dining with the whole family.
For those searching for a more traditional feel, why not take a look at the Ida tableware collection? These charming stoneware pieces are made in Morocco, where they are skillfully hand painted with North African designs in either black or navy. With trays, bowls, cups and jugs available, this beautiful collection is sure to bring that holiday feeling to the dinner table.
The Karuma range is another brilliant option for those looking to bring a fresh look to their dining room. Their distinctive and modern design is first etched into the clay then hand painted in a bright, summery blue. Completely handmade in north Vietnam using traditional methods, these look particularly striking when teamed with Shimu’s wide collection of natural wood products. The contrast of the ceramic and the texture of the wood creates a rustic, natural feel that is perfect for this time of year.
When it comes to tableware, you can treat yourself to a whole set, or mix and match the pieces to create your own unique collections. Of course, we also have a range of tables which are perfect for showing off all your new purchases. From the large, rustic feel of the country table, to the traditional Chinese design of the Qing dining table, there is something to suit every home whatever the weather.
