The Sophie Conran Autumn/Winter Collection is amazing as always! We asked Sophie what the essence is behind this Collection:
The collection was inspired by her 18th Century home in the county near Bath.  This classic English house with tall ceilings and large windows is flooded with natural light and perfect for entertaining.  She wanted to capture that feeling of contentment and joy you feel when spending time with family & friends.

We’re smitten with the floral candelabra and sconce pieces and asked what inspired these designs and how would Sophie recommend using them:
Sophie loves the work of sculptur Giacometti, and wanted to capture the sense of movement and light in his pieces and combine this with her love of nature using the leaf motif.  They look great on display empty or topped with candles to make a statement. The floral sconces really epitomises the collection, with modern style, handcrafted details and an organic sculptural quality.

We love the double layer glass vases and the different ways in which these can be used to create beautiful centrepieces! We asked what would be Sophie’s favourite way to use them as a centrepiece:
The perfect centrepiece at any time of year – from pinecones and nuts at Christmas to fresh floral blooms in the summer or seashells for a home near the beach.  You could even use it, as Sophie has done here, filled with ice cubes and chilled champagne.

On Working with Prezola:
Sophie is really excited to be working with Prezola to bring her pieces to newlyweds all over the UK.  To celebrate the launch of the new collection, Sophie is giving away 10 B.LOVED readers who sign up with Prezola the chance to win one of her gorgeous cake plates. She says ‘cake is something to enjoy together, and my cake plates are a staple in the kitchen! Elevating a beautiful homemade cakes adds to the sense of occasion and makes a really great centrepiece’
