Sarah Miller Porteirion collection lifestyle

Sara Miller is an award-winning British designer, who expresses her passion for travel and love for different cultures in her art. Though relatively new to the interiors scene, she has already stamped her mark in a number of different areas, including greeting cards, fragrance, gifts and homewares.

The stunning new range has been described as ‘bringing playful sophistication and a dash of whimsical charm to the table’ and we totally agree. We love the way Sara illustrates in exotic jewel colours, creating intricate designs that are both classy and a little cheeky.

The Piccadilly set

Probably the most darling collection – these mugs and cake plates feature lovable animals brimming with personality. They are sure to bring a smile to your guests’ faces.
