    Drawing inspiration from packaging, prints and patterns deep within the archives the new collection is full of personality. From hand-drawn vintage illustrations of the original Drury Lane shop on cake tins to classic checks on the tableware, this range has a print for all.

    We love the country classic check pattern featured across the table linen and dinnerware set. The casual check takes inspiration from traditional kitchen textiles, giving the design it’s homely nostalgic feel. This collection creates the ideal feel for relaxed everyday dining.

    The mustard yellow colour pops add a wonderfully retro vibe. Against the ‘of the now’ Oxford blue and chalky grey colours.
