In my first post about searching for a durable, white, set of dinnerware, I outlined several options that I have been considering for dinnerware. I want a white set that I can use for everyday, as well as entertaining, holidays, parties, etc. I received so many other ideas and options, that I wanted to share the other sets that I am considering, recommended by you!
Crate and Barrel's Aspen Dinnerware is both classic and affordable.
They are only $16.95 a place setting, and each plate is only a dollar more than the Ikea option. What I find most appealing about this dinnerware is that it specifically says it is chip-resistant! It also received 4.8 / 5 rating with 153 reviews. This seems to be the leading affordable option.
However, Pottery Barn also has some gorgeous options.
Their Gabriella Dinnerware is beautiful.
I love the details and curves. However, it is a bit more expensive at $12 / dinner plate, or around $35 per place setting. Another strike against it is that it's stoneware. All of my current dishes are stoneware, and while I love the look of them, they chip and crack so easily!
Pottery Barn also offers their Great White Traditional Dinnerware. It's simple and classic.
It's $26 a place setting, and made from porcelain. I love the clean lines. Nothing unusually fancy, but it's a great classic option. I am still concerned about the durability of this set, as some of the reviews do say that they have chipped.
William-Sonoma offers an Everyday Restaurant Porcelain Dinnerware.
They are definitely William-Sonoma's least expensive option, with their other sets being severely more expensive.
Simple, classic, nothing unusual or special. However, at $6 a plate they are in the same range as the Ikea and Crate and Barrel options. It received good reviews, and is supposedly very heavy and sturdy- which is what I'm looking for.
So there are four more great options to consider in the great search for the perfect dinnerware! I hope all of you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I've got a very exciting week of blogging planned for next week, and trust me, it sure beats dinnerware! ; )
