Oh, I do love a Welbeck cutlery tile. Or two. Or four…
Obviously, they’d look fabulous on kitchen walls, or you could just buy a pair (£22), glue felt to their bases and use them as statement coasters.
Check out the ultra-chic new Pied a Terre (yes, the shoe people) Home collection at House of Fraser this spring for stunning black and gold cutlery. It’s SO glamorous – imagine the black cutlery on a crisp white tablecloth with black napkins, Jo Malone candles and elegant white roses – WHAT a look for a decadent dinner party!
