We’re getting close to our move-in date. I’m now getting to decide on things like dishes and glasses and all sorts of decorative stuff. You’d think we’d have all this by now, but after moving around for so many years, I think a lot of our stuff is as tired as we are!
In terms of dinnerware, I’m going to start with a classic. So classic that I actually inherited an original set of Royal Copenhagen dishes from my grandmother. I never really had a thing for dishes and stashed these away for years. Now I realize how incredible they are and love the “modernized” blue fluted mega version seen below:
I first discovered the Bodo Sperlein dishes below while eating one of my more memorable New York meals. I stared down at the plate as much as at my food! These are stunning and elegant and look even better when neatly stacked together. Below: Dibbern Black Forest pattern and Red Berry
Years ago my sister gave me a present of some serving pieces by Mud Australia. I admit, I haven’t put a drop of food on them – they’re actually being used as sculpture on a bookshelf. But if I had a whole set, it would be a different story! The organic shapes are right up my alley.
What’s not to love about iittala’s Origo Dishware? These pieces by designer Alfredo Häberli have been around for a while and I never seem to tire of them.
