During the upcoming SS17 edition of Top Drawer, set to take place January 15-17 at Olympia, London, fine china mug company Dunoon will reveal new geometric designs, among others.

Dunoon is a company that began manufacturing stoneware products in 1974 in Argyll, Scotland, and now delivers a wide array of fine bone china mugs in various original designs and unique shapes.

The company will unveil a variety of new designs and shapes at the show, including a new range of geometrics on the contemporary Lomond shape.

“We’ve used 22k gold in the six patterns, which makes this set incredibly eye-catching,” says sales manager Peter Smith, adding “the artist who produced them has put her own twist into the geometric patterns to give them a more hand-drawn look, while keeping them looking smart and crisp.
