I do love me some melamine

Do you ever find yourself obsessed with acquiring certain items for no real reason that you can think of? And if the answer is yes, will you please share in the comments so I can feel like less of a freak? I’m talking here about items you own enough of, but for some reason keep wanting to collect more of—which is how I feel about rolling suitcases (weirdly) and melamine dinnerware, and who even knows why. My favorite melamine plates ever are from the Liberty of London/Target collaboration from way back (I found a few on Etsy just now) and we use them for everything out in Sag Harbor —melamine is so handy  for outdoor dining, which we like to do there. Melamine’s unbreakability is part of the allure, as I am a big fat klutz who breaks dishes endlessly, but they also often come with some standout prints, like this gorgeous floral.

The concentric circles here are pretty trippy-cool.

From John Derian: a really elegant tray with a vintage rope print.

I dig the Shibori pattern on this salad plate.

And the Suzani print here is so bold and statement-y.

This splatter print looks so one-of-a-kind.

There are a few colorways available for this one, but I find the pink and blue particularly appealing.

A set of cereal bowls that are delightfully matchy-clashy.

No print here, but I included this plate because it looks so much like a Heath Ceramics plate I own.

    Melamine can’t be microwaved, I believe.
