Kate of Kensington Kitchen Accessories
Kate of Kensington began when Kate started making homemade gifts for her friends and family, but in a short space of time the brand has built up to becoming a well-respected household name. As you can see from browsing through our collection of her kitchen accessories, Kate of Kensington celebrates the best of the rural British countryside and its animals. They would bring a touch of timeless warmth to any kitchen setup. Pick up some for your own collection, or as a gift to any animal lover in your life! It should be noted that, though measurements will be as accurate as possible, these are handcrafted products made from natural pieces of stone and so each product may have its own idiosyncrasies of divots, veins and textures.
Animal-themed kitchen accessories
Kate of Kensington's HQ is set in the beautiful British countryside in Howes Farm, Brentwood, where all the products are hand-made. You can really tell the influence of these serene settings on the work that she produces. These animal themed sets of kitchen accessories bring a true warmth and depth of character. Each item contains all the love and passion that Kate clearly has for nature and all its wonderful beings. For this reason, any of these items - be it a coaster or a platter - would be sure to spread this feeling of joy and celebration throughout your kitchen and home.
Kate of Kensington animal-themed coasters
We love how the Kate of Kensington coasters are so artistically rendered, with each watercolour illustration on the face of the coaster just as detailed and sensitively portrayed as any piece of wildlife art. It is not only the pictures which are of a high level of quality, but also the construction quality of the coasters themselves. These have been made out of beautiful marble and as such are both heat proof and cut proof. Pop your drinks on them, use them as a base surface for your candle, or as a stand for a decorative ornament. Just setting them up on your table will immediately create a warming and enchanting tone. The illustrations on the coaster sets include beautiful creatures such as a stag and doe pair, a collection of intricately painted summer bees, and a characterful group of hens. Just looking at each image will tap into what is most beautiful about the golden glow of British countryside.
Kate of Kensington platters
We also highly recommend the range of platters which Kate of Kensington has to offer. These are once more made out of the sturdy and beautiful material of marble. This means that, because it is heat proof, you can use these as a trivet for hot pans and dishes, or as a means of displaying some freshly baked treats. We like just simply having it set down in the middle of the table as a multipurpose centrepiece. Because of the increased size, you really get a sense of the intricate quality of all the watercolour illustrations. Some of the scenes are even very moving, such as one which depicts a fox and a rabbit sharing a quiet, peaceful moment together in the secret calm of the long meadow grass.
