Inspired by the Oriental character of one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world, Villeroy & Boch has launched new and even more decorative designs to its Samarkand collection. The richness of detail and elaborate depictions of a horse, elephant, lion and dromedary are the trademarks of this eye-catching tableware.
Using the vivid colours of ruby, aquamarine, mandarin and cobalt blue, the new series comprises salad plates, espresso cups and saucers. All of the decors harmoniously combine with existing pieces in the Samarkand collection, including the Classic Buffet plates in coordinating colours, and create a striking accent on the table.
Each design picks up on elements of Eastern architecture and interprets these on the finest premium bone porcelain. The intricate bordering exudes finesse and the fine gold accents add to the quality, resulting in a memorable tableware concept.
The Villeroy & Boch Samarkand collection is available from selected department stores and the House of Villeroy & Boch, Chatswood (NSW) and Glenside (SA). It can also be purchased online from the Villeroy & Boch e-shop: http://eshop.villeroy-boch.com/au/. RRP from $34.95.
