A Very British Summer With Ian Mankin

Now that the sun is out it's time to make a splash with bold stripes and signature ticking by British fabric manufacturer Ian Mankin. Fresh blue and pretty peony hues will add a coastal dash to summer breakfasts, lunch on the patio and alfesco dining. So very British!

A smart black and white striped border adds a sophisticated edge to this tablecloth and echoes the black pedestal table and window frame.

Red and blue make a bold statement especially against a white background. A blue vase filled with flowers from the garden makes the perfect finishing touch.

Layer checks, over gingham, over stripes for a very individual table. Perfect for a special occasion. Whilst the chairs are made more comfortable with pretty cushions tied with self fabric tabs.
