Refreshing your space with a simple table setting is the quickest way to make your dining experience feel new again. The easiest way to do this is by introducing white tableware and rearranging your dining space to curate a look that feels fresh with minimum effort.
White is the easiest colour to style – its classic, calm and never goes out of fashion.
That’s why every stylish table needs a crisp white tableware collection that’s highly versatile. Made from Wedgwood bone china, our white collections offer superior strength, silky white tones and beautiful translucency so you can set a casual dinner table for a more relaxed everyday eating experience. The new Gio collection alone or together with other Wedgwood collections will complement your table effortlessly. Here we will show you how to curate a simple and fresh table look the family will appreciate at any time.
A contemporary tableware collection, Gio is of stylish white fine bone china with a distinctive texture. Its design is a combination of modern and original - stimulated by todays fashion and interior trends of geometrics and neutral tones, whilst the embossed repeat pattern is inspired by Wedgwood’s traditional hand-crafted techniques pioneered by Josiah Wedgwood in the late 18th Century. This visually interesting design involves bespoke markings where layers of ceramic are cut through to produce embossment, adding irregularity and genuineness to the collection.
Gio is a timeless white created for the modern home and designed to be used every day. Tableware shapes and serveware pieces in the collection are ideal for casual dinner settings and sharing family food moments.
HOW TO SET A CASUAL DINNER TABLE
Setting up for a casual dinner should take no more than 5 minutes if you have all the essentials and this how to guide. Once you master the casual table, the art of layering and elevating your setting for formal dinners will become second nature.
Also known as a ‘family-style’ laid-back look, this doesn’t mean less stylish – it’s about keeping the everyday meal humble with timeless tableware and unfussy accessories. Follow these tips for easy casual dining:
• Choose timeless and stylish white tableware – layer dinner and salad plates for extra texture
• Neutral linens and surfaces – choose darker linens to elevate pure white tableware
• Simple flatware for dinner, salad and soup
• Always include water glasses with lemons and wine glasses
• Don’t add anything you won’t use on the table
Whilst the GIO collection performs perfectly as a stand-alone range in your home, it’s also a perfect match with our expressive Arris collection for an understated yet highly sophisticated and elegant layering aesthetic. Why not use pure white Gio in the day and layer with Arris pieces for a more sophisticated evening look?
