Update your kitchen accessories in time for entertaining season

Update your kitchen accessories in time for entertaining season

We know that annual December event might be too early to mention, but updating your kitchen in preparation for cosy nights in with select friends and home-cooked meals, is always a good idea. 


As the evenings get progressively more wintery, we can’t help but turn our thoughts to the coming season, and everything that is going to come with it this year. We love to give our kitchen a little update for this entertaining season, but that doesn’t have to mean spending thousands on new units.

Kitchen accessories and details really add to the overall feel of your space, and often take centre stage on your table. A beautiful serving dish, coffee pot or set of napkins won’t just look nice for guests, but will also bring a little joy every time you use them.

Sage advice 

This earthenware pot has a clean, contemporary design, and also is designed to ensure even heat distribution for perfect hearty stews. Its sage green shade will also add a soft mood to your kitchen, and would complement a range of other colours. Sambonet Terra Cotto Casserole 23.5cm, €105, The Triggerfish Cookshop.

Cosy Coasters 

Protect your surfaces while adding soft texture with these wool felt coasters. Available in light or dark grey, you can choose your favourite shade or go for a mix of the two. There’s even matching place mats if you want to complete the look. €2.50 each, Industry & Co.

Spot on

We love having dishes that are pretty enough to bring to the table, and these speckled designs from Habitat certainly fit the bill. Available in a round or rectangular design, they’re hand-finished in Portugal. Perdita cookware, around €23 each, Habitat.

New angles

Crafted from solid smoked oak, this asymmetric chopping board will add an angular touch whether you’re serving treats at the table or just chopping vegetables. €55, Ferm Living.

Local landmarks 

This Clover Rua print will add some design kudos to your dish-drying experience, and will also add interest when not in use. They have a whole range featuring different Dublin buildings, so you can pick your favourite spot. Liberty Hall Tea Towel, €17.95, Article.

Black magic

Go for something different than the usual glass and metal design with this Stelton French Press. Its sleek black combines with bamboo to provide a material contrast. Theo French Press, €79.95, Finnish Design Shop.
