This Friday’s Favorite is also a Find!
I lived in a one bedroom apartment my junior and senior year of college. Starting from scratch, I began purchasing the essentials that I needed to live on my own.
One of my favorite first purchases, that I still use today 6 years later, is the Frank Dinnerware from cb2. I bought the whole collection. It includes dinner plate, salad plate and soup bowl. I soon fell in love with the simplicity of my white porcelain dinnerware! The most unique feature of this collection is that it is stackable. They can be stored as a compact group. The salad plate also doubles as a lid for the soup bowls. How neat is that?! For the minimalist (sometimes hidden) in all of us… this dinnerware collection is great quality for a great price!- Kristen

White Dinnerware Perfect in Any Decor
This is one of the times when fate is more powerful than words. I also purchased the same Frank Dinnerware the first year it was available and continue to use it everyday. I’m pretty sure having the same daily dishes is not a partnership requirement, but it is touching none the less.
This dinnerware pattern is inspired by the Bauhaus school of design, circa 1920s Berlin. Along with the versatile salad plate as lid for bowl feature, is the fact that it is both microwave and oven proof. There are also medium size serving/baking bowls the same design as the dinnerware bowls. Agree wholeheartedly that white dinnerware, no matter the design, works in all decor. The possibilities are endless using a simply chic dinnerware as a foundation for your table.-Laurel
Let me sneak in another favorite dinnerware!
One last thought. We have clients who have been designated the family keepers of china…sometimes several sets. Others who ask us what to do with China that is packed away and was “expensive”. How about let’s use it in our everyday lives? Unless it has gold/silver on it, it can go in the dishwasher. (some with these metals can even go on gentle cycles so try it) But what if a piece breaks? So what? It will be a nice story to tell your kids/grandkids that would not have opened the box of these precious gems you passed on otherwise. They might even be the ones to break a piece and your legacy can live on in memories for years! We suggested a client use one of her multiple sets at her lakehouse….what fun she has had with this! Mixing china patterns and adding them to the above ebony or ivory pieces could be ever so chic.
Go ahead and get your china moving!
