After spending a few days thinking almost exclusively about food, table arrangements and general kitchen/home related stuff, it was only normal that I suddenly remembered Mateus. I discovered the brand while visiting the lovely Tove at the Varg showroom a few weeks ago.
Mateus was founded in 1993 by Teresa Lundahl. The collections are designed in Sweden and produced in Portugal, where ceramics are a specialty. The products are of course wonderful, but what tipped me over the edge was the beautiful and unusual styling of the lookbook. I love that they didn't take the easy option of just putting together a very chic table display but instead went for a completely whimsical set up.
