Searching for a stand out cutlery set this winter that will really wow your guests? Then look no further than Rivelin from our new Rivers range of cutlery. This collection has been created to radiate a certain air of style and make a statement. Dare we say that Rivelin really will make for riveting meal times, as everyone gathers round and marvels at the unique pentagon shaped ends that taper down across knives, forks and spoons to create a proud, heavy look that can take centre-stage on any dining table.    

Descending from the Hallam moors, the Rivelin is a fast-flowing river, used for centuries to drive water wheels that powered the very first industrial forges of Sheffield. This is why we designed Rivelin for sturdiness. With a balanced 3.5mm gauge for added strength and weight, Rivelin feels solid but also tactile and pleasing to handle.

Unique pentagon shaped ends that taper down

When it comes to designing the look and feel of your table with Rivelin in mind it’s a cutlery range that commands attention, so feel free to experiment and go bold with textures and colours that complement your overall design scheme and interiors vibe.

We’ve personally styled a look to give an updated take on a Scottish Highlands Winter Dining theme. A contemporary tartan table covering in muted tones of green, mustard and grey works to give an almost frosty feel to the backdrop. Combined with foraged thistles and eucalyptus sprigs, these simple touches of foliage bring interest to a tablescape which envelopes the aura of winter whilst still feeling fresh and vibrant.

Live the high life with an updated highlands theme featuring Rivelin 

If you’re looking to introduce an extra touch of interest with your tableware then adding an antique Faience Plate featuring an interesting scene or animal is a great way to get guests talking. Our chosen early 19th century Faience plate as shown above features a deer with antlers – the perfect nod to Scotland – but actually come from Nevers in France and was found on Rustique, a UK based online antique store who provide a curated selection of French pottery, art, and tableware, sourced from rural France.

Bordallo Pinheiro takes inspiration from organic forms to create their dishes  

Want to add an element of fun to your plates and dishes to perfectly complement the radiance of our Rivelin cutlery? Bordallo Pinheiro from Portugal with its iconic cabbage shaped plates offers a unique and quirky look and being dishwasher friendly is also a great choice for everyday use. The side plate peeking in above is the ideal size for serving snacks or appetisers.

Of course, vintage plates provide endless opportunities to inject vibrancy and pattern. Taking an Art Deco Royal Doulton plate such as ‘Bird in Foliage’ below and layering place settings underneath with a deep green velvet on top of the subtle tartan tones adds a real sense of richness to your dining experience.

Rich resplendence or marvellous minimalism - Rivelin suits any aesthetic  

Whatever you decide on, with cutlery from Grunwerg as your choice you’ll be starting off with quality items made to stand the test of time. So whether you prefer a dining scheme full of resplendent richness or a more minimal approach to mealtimes Rivelin is sure to rock your table.
