Our Dinnerware Styles, Colors and Designs

As you search for the perfect dinnerware pieces, you’ll want to choose from a wide selection of styles and colors. Our dishes is available in versatile neutrals and bold shades, including white, blue, red, green, black, grey and yellow. We also have casual dinnerware in modern patterns and designs to add contemporary style to the table.

Dinnerware Materials

In addition to a variety of styles and designs we offer, we also offer formal and casual dishes in a full range of materials. Choose from dinnerware constructed of:

Earthenware—Earthenware has a special antiqued character that is the result of the crackling that will form over in the finish. This material is fired at lower temperatures to take on glazes beautifully and stays true to color over time. Earthenware can be used in the dishwasher and can also go in a warming oven up to 350 degrees. It is also microwave safe at lower temperature settings.

Stoneware—Because stoneware is chip-resistant, it is great for everyday use. Stoneware is made of highly dense clay, and because it is processed in high firing temperatures and times, it is non-porous. This means even a crack in the glaze will not result in a stain in the dinnerware because the clay will not absorb anything. Stoneware dishes are microwave- and warm oven-safe.

Porcelain—With porcelain, the clay body fuses to the glaze to become one during firing, forming a chip-resistant dinnerware. Porcelain has a high density and versatility that make it ideal for a variety of everyday dining.

Bone China—Ash derived from cattle bones is mixed with clay and fire at very high temperatures. In spite of its delicate appearance, bone china is the most chip-resistant of all dinnerware and is microwave-, warm oven- and dishwasher-safe. To increase longevity of use, avoid sudden changes in temperature for maximum performance.
