It was love at first sight when I first stumbled across Ibride‘s serving trays while shopping at Liberty of London last summer. Made in France by designer Rachel Convers, each tray is painted in the style of 17th century Masters and depicts surreal portraits of human-like animals. They are utterly charming and beautifully bizarre. And not only are they functional (being waterproof, heat resistant and dishwasher safe), they make great wall decor in the kitchen or dining room!
