I’m still dining off the plates I got as part of my wedding registry over a decade and a half ago, and occasionally it bothers me that these relics of a failed marriage are part of my everyday life, and I’ll think about replacing the whole set. So far, I’ve had a hard time justifying the expense—they’re perfectly lovely plates, and their provenance is hardly their fault. Still, I’d love some of these bright, sturdy specimens from Le Creuset, just for starters.
Or I could go super-cheap and buy this set of cool rimmed plates from CB2—just under $50 for eight of them.
Conversely I could go all-out splurgy and buy just a couple of plates in this rather gorgeous pattern.
Another splurgetastic option, this one from Missoni.
I actually do own a couple of these, from Heath Ceramics—they’re super-solid and really big.
Such a nice grey, and really inexpensive.
This is just quite graphically appealing.
I like the detailing here, and it’s another great buy.
