You're not the kind who's going to miss any details, so make sure that you've got a fully decked out table with the Pimpernel Woodland Placemats - Set of 4 at each seat. Each of these placemats features a full-color image rendered in a classic style that depicts a different woodland scene. The high-quality prints are affixed to a 5-mm board with a durable cork back that won't scratch your surfaces. The tough exterior is stain-resistant and designed to be used with warm dishes up to 225 degrees. This timeless pattern is meant to outfit a whole table, so take some time to see the full selection of pieces that we have to offer in the Spode Woodland collection.
Strikingly beautiful, eminently practical, refreshingly affordable. These are the enduring values bequeathed to Portmeirion by its legendary co-founder and designer, Susan Williams-Ellis. Her father, architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, was the designer of Portmeirion, the North Wales village whose fanciful architecture has drawn tourists and artists from around the world (including the creators of the classic 1960s TV show The Prisoner). Inspired by her fine arts training and creation of ceramic gifts for the village's gift shop, Susan Williams-Ellis (along with her husband Euan Cooper-Willis) founded Portmeirion Pottery in 1960. After 50+ years of innovation, the Portmeirion Group is not only an icon of British design, but also a testament to the extraordinarily creative life of Susan Williams-Ellis.
The style of Portmeirion dinnerware and serveware is marked by a passion for both pottery manufacturing and trend-setting design. Beautiful, tactile, nature-inspired patterns are a defining quality of Portmeirion housewares, from its world-renowned botanical designs modeled on antiquarian books to the breezy, natural colors of its porcelain and earthenware. Today, the Portmeirion Group's design legacy continues to evolve, through iconic brands such as Spode, the Pomona Classics collection, and the award-winning collaboration of Sophie Conran for Portmeirion.
