Who knew there were so many pear-printed mugs out there? I’ve found a selection of my favourites, and thought I’d share them with you.
Next up (above) is this bone china cup from the dotcomgiftshop – a steal at £5.95. Very Orla-esque, but original nonetheless.
I couldn’t not include this classic Lotta Kühlhorn design for Scandinavian brand Koloni (below): perfect in its very pearness, and at only £7.95 from Illustrated Living, totally unmissable. (Check out an earlier blog post all about Lotta Kühlhorn’s apple print chopping board here.)
At £10.50, the mug below is a smidge pricier than the others, but the unusual chunky pear design makes up for it: quite a change from sleek Scandinavian curves, this Alice Apple pattern is something out of the ordinary. You can find them on Alice’s website here, and don’t forget to check out her other products on Etsy too.
Finally, to finish, it has to be the Orla Kiely pear mug – originally designed for Target, but available all over the interweb. I found this one chez Illustrated Living (again) for £7.25 and was sorely tempted (again).
My granny has an orange kitchen, with chocolate brown trimmings and accessories. This made a serious impression on me as a child and seems to have influenced all sorts of later acquisitions. For example, I recently found a fantastic Marimekko orange and brown wide-stripe T-shirt tunic on Ebay that I was itching to get my hands on. But that’s another story. Getting back to this Lotta Kühlhorn apple print chopping board, I can picture it perfectly in my Granny’s kitchen. There is something so wonderfully simple about the pattern, the form, the colours. Everything works together. But I bet you if I had one of these I would NEVER use it to chop on. Work of art. On the wall. No question.
