I’m about to invest in new cutlery and the decision is critical. I really want finely shaped silverware collected from antique shops around the country — a beautifully mis-matched set. However, I don’t really have the patience to do this, nor know enough about silverware to make sure I’m buying actual silver. I hope to do this one day and build up the collection slowly. Until then, I’m going on the internet to search for something modern.
At the moment, I’m in love with Laguiole — particularly in ivory. This simple French design reminds me of the cutlery we had as children around the big farmhouse table. I would love to have something similar in my small London flat.
Graham & Green sell a lovely set of Laguiole in ivory for a very decent price. I’m very tempted!
