Step into the world of Skye McAlpine Tavola, a beautiful homeware range by culinary connoisseur Skye McAlpine, whose love for food and gatherings knows no bounds. We were honoured to recently welcome Skye into our showroom, where she designed and created an exclusive tablescape for us using some of her most loved pieces from Tavola, alongside some favourites from other brands of ours. Read on to discover the tablescape and get some inspiration for your wedding gift list.
With two outstanding cookbooks to her name, and her culinary expertise gracing the pages of prestigious publications like Vogue, The Daily Telegraph, and Vanity Fair, as well as a regular recipe column in The Sunday Times, Skye McAlpine isn’t just a food writer. She's a true entertainer, and her love for sharing her passion for food shines through all her creative endeavours.
Born in the heart of London, Skye moved with her family to Venice at the age of six, planning to stay for just a year. However, Venice has a way of capturing people’s hearts and three decades later, Skye still divides her time between London and the mesmerising canals of Venice. It is this unique blend of Venetian craft, the Italian dolce vita lifestyle, and a touch of British chintz that has served as the creative wellspring for her exquisite tabletop collection, Skye McAlpine Tavola.
For Skye, her fondest moments revolve around the dining table, where she relishes good food and the company of loved ones. It's the essence of life's celebrations—those cherished moments she seeks to elevate and savour more frequently. Skye McAlpine Tavola reflects this sentiment through everyday tableware inspired by long, leisurely lunches, dinner parties, holiday gatherings, and cosy weeknight suppers with friends.
Skye's belief in the transformative power of beautiful crockery shines through each piece in her Tavola collection. In a world where time spent together is invaluable, Skye McAlpine Tavola brings a touch of magic to the table— Millefiori glasses, hand-painted Frutti di Bosco plates, bowls and jugs, and vintage Fiorellino napkins to make every meal an exquisite experience.
Skye McAlpine Tavola is not about matching; it's about celebrating eclecticism and personal expression. Each item is made in Italy or the UK by passionate craftsmen who share Skye's devotion to quality. These are pieces meant to be used to create memories with loved ones around the dining table.
A place where the love for food, friends, and the joy of sharing come together in perfect harmony. We are honoured to offer this stunning collection for your wedding gift list.
