AMBIENTE PREVIEW: DENBY
Discover what exciting new ranges and extensions Denby will unveil at Ambiente 2016, which takes place February 12-16, 2016
At Ambiente 2016, Denby will unveil its brand-new collection Natural Canvas.
Made in England and handcrafted by skilled artisans, Natural Canvas is both beautiful and functional.
The timeless, neutral tones and shape design of the collection make it a range suited to any home’s style and colour and works equally well when mixed and matched with other items.
The ‘roulette’ texture featured on some of the pieces was inspired by the
iconic ‘Chevron’ pattern of the 1960s and the unique Denby glaze gives warmth as well as durability making every piece unique. Many items in the range can serve several functions – the sugar bowl as a ramekin or olive bowl, the cafetière as a pretty vase or large jug and the pasta bowl as a baking dish.
Every item can be used in the oven, dishwasher, freezer and microwave. All of these features make Natural Canvas tough enough to be loved and enjoyed from quiet teatimes, Friday nights with friends to Sunday family lunches, offering beautiful form but without the formality.
