Add a touch of the Med, Morocco or nostalgia to your tableware

Our autumn collections of tableware take you from the la dolce vita of Italy, via the enticing medinas of north Africa, and then back home for some delightful homegrown designs with a rural flavour. Mix and match as you wish - the choice is yours.

Our John Lewis Italia tableware range is a true celebration of Italy. It's fresh, contemporary and charming. We've added a fun twist to our House by John Lewis porcelain range too, making it easy for you to mix and match with your everyday china. This collection is made up of vibrant and bright linens; platters for antipasti and pizza made from acacia wood; and some fun accessories, including our pizza scissors and stackable wine glasses, for easy storage.

Inspired by Morocco and completely irresistible, our Medina tableware range will help you bring the warmth and colours of a Moorish souk into your home. The china combines jewel-like colours with contemporary styling; the decadent glass features intricate patterns, while the beaded placemats and napkin rings give you that authentic feel. Complete the look with ornate lanterns inspired by classical Moroccan designs.

Create a stylish and sophisticated look for your table this autumn with our Rural Luxe tableware range, which captures the trend for nostalgia with a twist of today. The Delamere Rural china is a modern interpretation of the classic Spode Delamere dinnerware design, which has been reworked in a contemporary grey colour. Serve your wine in style with our elegant Provence glasses, while our Rural Stripe table linen collection will add a rustic, homely touch.
