Design Porn: La Luna Porcelain


We've been potty for tea round these parts recently. Holly has rounded up the very best teapots, Frances found some geometric gems from which to sip, and Sian featured the perfect pourer in last week's Friday Wishlist. And today I'm wading in to the Great Teapot Debate Of 2014 with this simply beautiful swan teapot by La Luna. Isn't it just a complete eye-treat? It's £39. 

Come on. Let's go and explore the rest of La Luna's wares, all available from In-Spaces.


We'll be needing a milk jug and sugar bowl to go with our new teapot. I am very keen on the fact that, out of context, the sugar bowl looks quite sinister. Like a shark's fin. Or a little bit of One Direction's hair. Or the head of Darius Danesh. 


There's a swan mug, too, but I'm finding his face and neck a little Loch Ness Monster for my liking. He's got the evil eye. I think he might make me spill hot tea all over myself. 


Much more my cup of tea (BOOM BOOM) is this elephant mug.


Hello little chap! Despite bringing back memories of the Marius debacle, this giraffe mug is ticking all my boxes and ringing all my bells. La Luna's animal mugs are £17 each. That's 'best mug' territory, isn't it? Although my 'best mug' is a Sports Direct one, because why drink a cup's worth of coffee when you can have a bucket-load?


Um, now we veer into Cute or Creepy? territory, I'm afraid, with an emphasis on the creepy. This zebra bowl is giving me the heebie-jeebies, but then I've never been good with decapitated equines. The accompanying creamer and sugar bowl has freaked me out so much I couldn't even picture it here. SHUDDER.

To sum up: I don't love everything La Luna has to offer, but I ADORE the pieces that work with the natural curves and postures of wildlife, particularly the swans and that cheeky wee giraffe. I think (in this case, not in life) simple is best. What say you?
