Trays can be so much more than trays. I'm currently collecting some to fill my new kitchen display shelves: I like nice things to look at, but useful nice things to look at are even better.
And this pleasingly coloured, spring-like wooden number from – gasp – Tesco, would enhance a wall as much as it would a spread of summery drinks and al fresco hors d'oeuvres. I also like the idea of a collection of trays displayed with plate wall-hangers.
Tesco's range of homewares this season is looking pretty good – the brand has a new head of design, Steven Rowe, previously of M&S and Laura Ashley. I also really like their new dip-dye crockery.
