Colour on Colour

Mateus – It’s all about colours

There’s a story behind everything. For Teresa Mateus Lundahl, the founder of Mateus, it’s about passion for the set table. It’s a love story that will undoubtedly last forever. Mateus handcrafted ceramics create a feeling of warmth and wellbeing in the home. Designed to captivate your senses, they set the stage for sharing good food and conversation around a beautifully set table.

The ideas that formed Mateus took shape over the course of several years. Teresa, originally from Portugal, saw design trends shifting in her new home country of Sweden. Colors and patterns began to make inroads into Swedish homes. Why not bring together the best of both her worlds? Why not fuse traditional Portuguese ceramic craftsmanship, Swedish design and contemporary fashion trends into quality products that celebrate the love of life? And the Mateus brand was born.

As spring arrives, we layer colour on colour to leave the grey winter behind. It’s time to celebrate the joy and happiness of a colourful life.

The all-time favourite colour Light Pink is being added to the collection Mateus meets Sam Baron meets Yatzer. One movement in the colour revolution.

Strong bonds

Teresa and Filippa Mateus Lundahl are the creative forces behind the Mateus brand. This dynamic mother-daughter duo runs the company with passion.

Mateus was founded in 1993 with the ambition to unite the two cultures that continue to shape Teresa. A lot has happened since the first plate was lifted from the kiln, and today ceramics from Mateus are sold all over the world.

Filippa, a designer, joined the company in 2014 brimming with energy and new ideas, new marketing methods and new collections. She designed the popular “Bubbles” series. This playful, contemporary collection of ceramics is beautiful alone or layered with other Mateus collections.

Mother-daughter relationships can be complicated – and even more so when mixing business and private life. Respect, trust and a lot of laughter are the key ingredients that contribute to Mateus’s ongoing success. Strong bonds and an eye for design and beauty keep the company thriving.

Caring for your ceramics

Mateus ceramics evoke warmth and a joy of life. Designed to captivate your senses, they set the stage for sharing good food and conversation around a beautifully set table.

Taking good care of your ceramics from Mateus will ensure that they look their best on your table for a long, long time. Each piece is lovingly crafted by hand in Portugal from fine-grained clay, a living, natural material. All products are fired at high temperatures to achieve the necessary durability for everyday use in the home.

The firing technique also makes the ceramics as water-resistant as possible. Microwave and dishwasher safe, all Mateus products meet safety standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
