International bright new things

John Lewis and Leon have teamed up

A new range of cookware generally leaves us picturing the perfect new life we will lead when we have it all (current fantasy: jasmine-surrounded table outside the Mediterranean beach house we have miraculously acquired). So, we were keen when we heard John Lewis (where nothing very bad could ever happen) have teamed up with Leon, the healthy fast-food chain who have seen us through many an al desco lunch. As well as cool wooden carving boards and brightly coloured tins (cool organisation, via pretty tins for tea and so on, is part of the fantasy), they’ve done a stellar job of stock pots and, our favourite, the glazed terracotta dishes for tapas and sharing plates in vibrant, earthy colours. Honestly, even the tin tray is cool. From £4, John Lewis
