For fine china that's right on-trend, register for plates from the new Samarkand collection by Villeroy and Boch which incorporates Aztec designs as seen on the spring/summer catwalks. The bone porcelain dinner plates and side plates in neutral tones feature striking gold borders of bands and chains and, when combined with the large colourful chargers, will add drama to your table setting. For practicality, the collection is dishwasher safe - phew! - and we like the idea of completing the look with gold stemmed wine glasses from Villeroy and Boch's Arden Lane range. From £24.85 for a side plate; 020 8875 6060; www.villeroy-boch.com.
