Flowers and leaves are a natural when it comes to inspiring designs on dinnerware. The popularity of patterns from these inspirations reflect consumers’s desire to bring aspects of nature’s beauty and power into their homes. Here are some flora themed patterns that range from modernized takes on traditional best sellers to those with bold blooms and leaf motifs mixed with graphic design elements to complement contemporary lifestyles.
Considering how many foods and meals we eat that are not best served on a flat plate — bring on the bowls! Tableware brands now offer many new upsize bowl options, and called by many different names — pasta bowl, dinner bowl, bistro bowl, farm bowl, meal-in-a-bowl bowls, and even sometimes deep plates or simply large bowls. These versatile vessels provide the perfect solution to consuming some of our favorite soup, salad, rice, noodle, chili, slow-cooker and grain based meals. Best of all these type of dinner bowls look great welcoming guests to a table setting but work just as great when enjoying a meal — sans knife, curled up on the couch. Other sizes and shapes like small accent bowls and footed bowls are essentials for dips, snacks and desserts. And keep in mind stylish serving bowls that can do double duty as a decorative centerpiece, or even multitask in the kitchen for prepping food.
