In what could be the most timely tableware release ever, beloved Melbourne-based brand Bonnie and Neil have just launched their summer collection to satisfy the entertaining itch. Filled with patterned napkins, botanical throws and printed linen runners, ‘Clover’ is here to take your summer entertaining game up a notch!

At the beginning of March, beloved Australian homewares brand Bonnie and Neil opened up a brand new concept space in Reservoir. The part-retail-showroom-part-workshop was a chance for shoppers to see the brand’s products in a sumptuous styled setting, as well as glimpse the process behind production.

But we all know what happened in March 2020! During the last few months of restrictions and lockdowns, Bonnie Ashley and Neil Downie have been busy scaling their small team of local hand makers up and down according to the flux of demand – even making face masks for Victorians. But now they’re back on their regular beat, with a stunning new collection of table linen!

‘Clover’ is a tropical celebration of the summer months to come. Added to the fold of regular fruit prints and botanical motifs are more coastal-inspired graphics and new florals, such as foxgloves and ornamental lilies. In addition to cushions, napkins and tablecloths, the collection will feature large throws adorned with new artworks by Bonnie.

‘With a rich, bold colour palette full of summery tones, the collection has been designed to bring harmony and positivity into the home,’ says creative director, Bonnie. ‘Now that restrictions have been relaxed in Australia and as everyone start having intimate gatherings at home, it’s just another excuse for beautiful table settings!’

This summery spread is giving us all the good vibes!

The ‘Clover’ collection is available to shop now. Have a browse here.
