Tube Coffee Set

I love the look of matte ceramic.

“Designed by the boys at Vast Design in Greece, fired in Portugal where artisans have been producing hard-wearing ceramics from the local clay for hundreds of years, this set (coffee pot, milk jug and sugar) sits on a wooden base (indentations keep the pieces secure). Careful attention to details of form and proportion give the set a stylish retro/modern feel. Available in matte white or black”
