The riveting dinnerware porn thread

(32 Posts)

i want a nice dinnerware set. Where everything matches and is lovely. I currently have no more than three of anything the same, and rather a lot of odds and ends. So, inspire me with your sexy dinnerware <sits back, folds arms>

More breakfastware than dinner but nonetheless, acceptable

CheeryCherry Sat 09-Jul-11 21:13:21

Watching with interest....and I'd like different shaped plates!

Blocking hell, Lemon. I want diamond studded for that price! <fans self>

LemonDifficult Sat 09-Jul-11 21:22:29

OK, this is exactly the kind of challenge I like. Do you have a budget? Does it need to be new for that or would you collect it off Ebay?

I'd like to get lovely, sexy dinnerware for under....£75. and I don't want plain White. And I like chunky. And flowers.

LemonDifficult Sat 09-Jul-11 21:28:51

How many settings for that?

At least 4, but ideally 6 <ups the ante>

LemonDifficult Sat 09-Jul-11 21:33:41

over budget but have a look in this range not chunky or floral but fun - there are some other nice chunky things from Habitat too and they'll all probably be on discount soon enough

LemonDifficult Sat 09-Jul-11 21:35:44

Again, not totally chunky but definitely useable

pallymama Sat 09-Jul-11 21:39:01

chunky, floral, and £75! grin

LemonDifficult Sat 09-Jul-11 21:47:37

Pally, I admit defeat

Oh. Well, yes. It is floral. But it's also making my eyes bleed a bit. Maybe subtle floral would be more....acceptable.

What did you think of the Rachel Barker stuff?

I like it, lemon. But I will never convince DH that I need to spend £15 on a cereal bowl. Never ever.

Eternal Beau?

<<whistles>>

Erm, not really me. A bit...fussy. I like plates to be round.

Over budget and out of production, but I absolutely love my Wedgwood Painted Garden set. If you can find it somewhere, it's absolutely worth the money.

I also have Villeroy & Boch's Castellina set for everyday use, it's very high quality and extremely durable and just within your budget (I ordered my set from Germany and it arrived in perfect condition).

I don't think I can help at all, but I'm enjoying looking around. I would head to the nearest big department store and see if there is anything there you like.
These are what I've found while surfing around:

A couple of years ago I got rid of all the odds and ends we had and went for an all-white set from Habitat.

Dare to be different and buy the best (mixed non matching) at charity shops. It can look wonderful a la Kirsty Allsop.

Jackaroo Mon 11-Jul-11 03:02:52

This may be slightly more patterned than you're looking for... but my parents bought it for me for my wedding present.

I have nothing else to add.

slightly over-the-top

LemonDifficult Mon 11-Jul-11 03:37:39

I like it - doesn't look chunky though... (Doesn't look cheap either)

Jackaroo, I like that. If I had a formal dining room, I would have it. But alas, I have a tiny round table wedged in the corner of the kitchen. That dinnerware is above my table's station.

Jackaroo Mon 11-Jul-11 09:30:33

Well, thank you ChickNo, I do too. Although it was better in our teeny dark red dining room in London victorian house than in our 1960s australian home now. It's on it's way over the sea as we speak, all 28 dinner plates of it shock plus hundreds of other pieces. The lady who we bought it from had collected it over teh years (every time there was a buffet or similar) and assured me she'd never let "the staff" clean it. My very own little piece of Downton Abbey :-)
