I have previously discussed my desire for a fresh set of dinner plates here: I’ve been eating off of my current ones since receiving them as a wedding registry gift, well over two decades ago. For a long time it’s slightly bothered me to still rely on these relics of my brief bummer marriage, but I couldn’t quite justify the purchase of a new set for that reason alone. By now, however, literally every one of those plates is chipped, and it feels like time for an upgrade. My picks here are a bit all over the map, style-wise, starting with this classic and graphic Marimekko print.
I go back and forth between wanting something statement-y—like that Marimekko plate above—to desiring a very, very minimal vibe, like on these red-rimmed ones.
The biggest reason I’m tempted by these Le Creuset plates is that they appear sturdy enough to survive in my kitchen. They also, like most all Le Creuset items, come in a variety of good colors.
I like that these look slightly imperfect.
Of course I want these mustard yellow plates bad.
Here is a deeply budget-friendly option that I like in this gray, but that also comes in a few other good hues.
I’m going a bit afield by showing this bowl and plate set from fancy Italian brand La Double J, but it is just so bright and happy.
The braided texture here is quite elegant.
OK, so a whole set of this skull plate might be a bit on the extra (and expensive) side, but I’m considering just going for one and employing it as a serving dish.
I really dig the faint tie-dye vibe here, and think it looks pricier than it is.
