Introducing Amalfi

Julie Jurden

Lemon groves nestled in terraced hills with a bright contrast between the green leaves and blue sea, the strong scent of lemon blossoms or "zagare", and views that are breathtaking all create the atmosphere of the Amalfi Coast. The environment produces unique lemons "sfusato amalfitano" which have a distinct shape, color and flavor, and is the inspiration for our latest collection, Amalfi.

This collection highlights the lemons grown in the terraces groves on the Amalfi coast. The bright pop of yellow lemons in this design is accentuated by a flowing blue detail on a creamy white background. This handcrafted collection features serving and accent pieces that you’ll love using at casual family dinners and entertaining affairs. Pair this bright collection with our Condotti blue serving pieces and Tivoli marine blue tumblers. Limoncello anyone?
