Some fantastic tableware choices from Nest.co.uk

When Nest.co.uk got in touch and asked me to preview their kitchen and dining ranges I found myself poring over their site contemplating exactly what I needed to make my new dining table - and chairs when they arrive, absolutely perfect. I've a feeling that the longer it takes for the chairs to arrive, which will hopefully be in the next few weeks, the more expensive it could get.

I have visions of the table completely transforming our lives, which may be a tad on the unrealistic side if I'm honest. But even in our reality I'm hoping that we'll eat at the table more often than in front of the TV, I know the dream hey?

The meal that we most consistently eat at the table, is strangely enough breakfast. And clearly having this carafe for our fruit juice would make breakfast even better.

Once we've cleared the table from breakfast I think this plate would look great on the table.  I'm intrigued to know just how jelly-like it is. The Nest website says the plate has been created by "experimenting with the texturisation of surface materials, resulting in the core material being enhanced to influence the jelly-like appearance."

It's a beautiful colour too isn't it? - and it'd pick up the blue in the wallpaper behind our table.

And for the times where we do eat dinner on the sofa in front of the TV - because in all reality we will sometimes - these trays will save MOH wearing his dinner, which happens all too often and should actually be the prompt we need to eat at the table more often.

The final piece I want to share with you is this cleverly designed tableware set.  It looks like a vase, but each of the tableware pieces stack together to form the vase - and while that's clever, look at how detailed and decorative the individual pieces are. I'm not sure I'd leave it stacked that often.

The vase when stacked is 30cm high - the height of a ruler (what a go to visual measurement that is!) and comprises 4 or 8 plates, a salad bowl, another slightly smaller bowl and a dish and is topped with a small pot with a lid. It's so very clever, and beautiful too.  And just goes to show not all tableware has to be stored in our cupboards.
