I have a serious love of tableware. My husband complains that we have way too many dishes, glasses, and bowls in different sizes, shapes, and colors. That's partially because I have collected a lot of little sets over time…and partially because a couple years ago, our cabinet that holds our dishware came crashing down leaving us with random odds and ends from my years of collecting. It's been a goal of mine to (someday) restock our cabinets with my dream tabletop collection.
While I love the hodge-podge mix-and-match thing for some areas of my home, for tableware lately I just want to have a classic and chic set that goes with everything. It's like painting your walls white, having wood floors, and putting in some accents of marble or brass. Once you have that, you can add color and pattern as you wish for each occasion. As I dream about having a fresh set of these basics, I thought I'd share with you 10 of my favorite classic pieces to help create a dream tabletop set…
1. Duralex Gigogne tumbler, 2. Duralex Picrdie tumbler, 3. Anthropologie copper flatware, 4. Anthropologie gilded stemless wine glasses, 5. Doma serving set, 6. napkins by Native Organic, 7. wire bowl by Menu, 8. Dansk dinnerware, 9. Morandi pitcher, 10. bread serving tray from Leif.
P.S. See more of my favorite on my Tabletop Pinterest board.
Nice picks! I love #10, the tray from Leif. Farmhouse Pottery in Vermont is another one of my favorite places for well-made tabletop pieces.
You have all my favorites up there!
Digging the copper flatware!!
I love the tumblers and the pitcher. Perfect for the open concept shelving that is trending these days!
Lovely. What do you use for the kids? I’m struggling to find cute but affordable kids tableware. Any advice would be appreciated!
I love that Anthropology flatware, just gorgeous!
It is ridiculous how gorgeous some of these things are – especially the copper Anthro flatware.
Thanks for the roundup! I’m enjoying your pintereste board, too (that modern Welsh love spoon is too much!).
