The most quintessentially British partnership of the season has arrived – and it’s set to make a statement on both sides of the Atlantic. The collaboration comes from Craven Dunnill Jackfield and Burleigh – the brand behind Meghan Markle’s famous teacup, which she recently debuted during a video message on her 40th birthday.
Burleigh may have already made royal waves this summer, but they're setting interior design trends this autumn with their new ceramics collection in collaboration with Craven Dunnill Jackfield. Together, Burleigh and the 150-year old bespoke tile producer have joined forces to create seven unique tiles that celebrate their century-old expertise.
Of course, we can’t ever know for sure, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see these prints in the Duchess of Sussex’s bathroom. She is evidently a fan of Burleigh, after all.
Whether the collection will reshape royal kitchen ideas remains unknown at present, but whatever happens, these pieces will set the tone in the most fashionable of interiors in Santa Barbara and beyond.
But what makes this collaboration stand out? And why should it be the focal point of your dining table decor ideas this season? This union of two historic companies uses traditional materials to create handmade, British works of craft – that will act as a stylish statement this season – and a timeless family heirloom for years ahead.
Ceramics from the Burleigh X Craven Dunnill Jackfield collaboration comprise both cast and pressed tiles, with a distinct stained-glass window-style glaze. They also bear Burleigh’s 1968 Calico pattern – an aesthetic that has set bathroom ideas for over half a century.
And if you think that Burleigh looks familiar beyond the celebrated video call, then you are certainly not mistaken. This English powerhouse has already shaped the most stylish interiors across the US, where they are stocked in Bloomingdalesand found in boutique hotels worldwide.
Meanwhile, back on their native soil, Craven Dunnill Jackfield has proved a talking point across London, following their involvement in the King’s Cross tunnel.
Patterned tiles start at £8.95 (approximately $12.12) per unit and are available in Laurel, Cobalt, Smoke, Aquamarine, Turquoise, Tangerine, and Flame. They are sold at Craven Dunnill Jackfield and will be available to view at the Jackfield and Bridgnorth showrooms
