Just because you want to entertain in high style doesn't mean you have to break out your Grandma's bone china. If you're feeling the urge to get a little more classic with your tableware, but aren't into the floral designs you were subjected to every Thanksgiving, then New York-based design collaborative Lovegrove & Repucci have the answer.
Their freshly released London Delft collection is a play on the 18th century tradition of Dutch Delft porcelain. Building on the success of the previously launched New York Delft collection, this time around they've mixed the timeless, high-art vibe of the famous blue glazed dishes with a little London street art edge. Each setting is made up of five pieces: a dinner plate, side plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer, and are available for $100.
If the general coolness of the collection isn't enough to impress your design-savvy dinner partygoer, then just wait until they reach the bottom of their soup bowl and find a good "˜ol lorry. (For us non-Brits, that's a truck.)
