Following a successful year in 2020, Tower Housewares continues to expand its ever-growing portfolio throughout 2021 with a new category, an exciting and innovative range of stylish tableware known as Barbary & Oak.
Simon Oliver, Housewares Sales Director at RKW Ltd, says Barbary & Oak is quite simply “fashion for your home. The collection is inspired by fashion, entertaining and design trends from around the world, and uses bespoke colour palettes and hand-crafted finishes to create an artisan feel. “At RKW, we believe every home should feature design which makes you feel good, which is why we are committed to offering distinctive collections that inspire and delight.”
The range comprises 16-piece stoneware dinner sets, including the requisite items for home dining – dinner plates, side plates, bowls and mugs.
The name ‘Barbary & Oak’ relates to two national emblems of England. The Barbary lion is a symbolic animal of England, where in the Middle Ages, the lions kept at the Tower of London were Barbary lions and their image was adorned on flags as a symbol of strength, courage, dignity and pride. And then the mighty oak is the national tree of England, representing strength, beauty and endurance. Oaks are truly central to British life and feature strongly in art, architecture and heraldry.
Inspired by fashion, entertaining and design trends from around the world, Barbary & Oak uses bespoke colour palettes and hand-crafted finishes to create an artisan feel. This premium range celebrates the handmade touch, using soft layered colours to give everyday kitchen items a homely feel.
New for spring 2021, the range comprises 16 piece stoneware dinner sets, including the requisite items for home dining – dinner plates, side plates, bowls and mugs.
