Wow, we’re seriously loving the retro cool California vibe of the Sol Collection by Oliver Bonas. Comprising of the coolest, funkiest ceramic cafetière, matching espresso cups and saucers, and a cute teapot again with matching cups and saucers, this collection features tropical prints, an optimistic yet nostalgic colour palette and a cool Californian feel. Just what you need to bring some much-needed escapism into your kitchen.
Back in summer 2019, the Oliver Bonas homeware design team travelled to LA to gather ideas for their latest designs. They visited galleries, boutiques and the famous Rose Bowl market, talking to different people to learn about laidback Californian life.
A road trip to Palm Springs and The Joshua Tree National Park ignited their inspiration. “We drove there at sunset and experienced all the incredible colour changes of the landscape as the sun went down” says Oliver Bonas’ homeware print designer, Emily. “It was such a peaceful moment”.
In a warm colour palette with optimistic yet nostalgic shades, “the prints in the collection capture the natural, dreamlike beauty that we experienced in LA” says Emily. “We chose motifs that reflect the comforting warmth of a sunset – the sun and it rays against an organic landscape of palm trees, the desert, its plants and animals”.
Come and have a look at the collection in a bit more detail:
