Beauty is soft and feminine, Arabian plays with colours that are unique to the region and Cruising highlights the soothing effects of blues and whites.

The Sbriciola breadboard is new from Alessi and just in at Tavola stores in Dubai. It is Alessi's first and only breadboard and is made from bamboo wood and thermoplastic resin. Crumbs fall through the slits in the top of the board into a hidden draw, which is divided into two sections, one of which serves as a dedicated compartment for your bread knife. Genius.
