Artists and Designers

Designer Robert Welch

United Kingdom

Robert Welch’s career got off to a humble start in the beautiful English Cotswolds, in a tiny dorm-style room with a bed and a drawing board in an old silk mill in the market town of Chipping Campden. The British designer was greatly influenced by the functionality and clean lines of Scandinavian modernism during his years at the Royal College of Arts in the mid 1950s, and Welch went on to become an iconic name for thoughtfully designed, affordable stainless steel flatware. His designs have been collected by major museums around the world.

After Robert Welch’s death in 2000, two of his children, Rupert and Alice, took the reins of the company, which now occupies the entire top floor of that same 200-year-old stone building. Today, even as Robert Welch designers work in a setting steeped in history, they use new technology such as 3D printers to carefully hone their product designs. With a miniscule adjustment to a curve here or a handle thickness there, they create elegant utensils with just the right weight and balance to feel perfectly natural in the hand. “Design was a part of every day when Rupert and I were little,” says Alice Welch. “Dad used to bring home prototypes for us to test and review; you never knew what was going to appear next.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Flatware This flatware is very modern in design and has considerable weight to it. It does not bend easily as some of the other cheaper stainless that is not 18/10 grade. Overall a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 15 years and still like new We received this set from our wedding registry....17 years ago. They are durable, still look great after years of going through the dishwasher. Through the years I've lost a few pieces and was dreading having to search for pieces as great as they are, not expecting C&B still carried them! Reordering another set to last another 15+ years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flatware The flatware I bought is heavy! Kind of bulky, Foster-flatware is still beautiful. There should be Foster flatware that includes uses of butter; jelly; maybe, finally a few tools to pare apples and/or potatoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this set - The style and weight are perfect for what we were looking for. Simple , nice in the hand, goes with lots of different dishes as well. My only critic is that they do spot a little more then I had hoped but I just used a non spotting solution and seems to help. The price is stellar for the look and high quality metal blend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design I purchased this item as a gift. I recently was able to use this flatware and was very please with its weight and clean design. Perfect for small spaces with its stacking ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this flatware! This is good-looking flatware that feels great in the hand and is perfect for everyday use. We loved the Robert Welch flatware in a vacation home we rented for years, so we bought "Foster" for our own second home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Flatware! We have been looking for flatware that we like for over two years. I was so happy when I found Foster Flatware at Crate and Barrel. We love the design and how sturdy it is. WE are thrilled with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect shape and size for everyday use I ordered 8 place settings to replace the set of the same pattern that have lasted 15 years. Some of the pieces are slightly larger than the older set, but they are just as easy to handle and well balanced as the set I replaced. I have no intention of ever purchasing another brand or another style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased My wife and I purchased 8 Foster flatware sets a few weeks ago, after spending several months looking at various alternatives, and are very pleased with our choice. They are very attractive, have clean modern lines, and are comfortable to use (size, heft, etc.). They nicely complement the square Mercer dinnerware we bought from C&B a month earlier. So far they have not shown any "scars" from dishwasher or everyday use; hopefully they will retain their good looks for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for such good quality! I am very happy with the look, feel and quality. Washes very well and does not seem to scratch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic buy! Highly recommended. I've been looking for versatile flatware for day to day use that looks good, feels good and will last a while. This set is fits all criteria and is inexpensive to boot! The finish is beautiful and well made, smooth, with no place for food stains to hide, easy to clean and has an underside groove that's ergonomically comfortable to hold. The heft is just right, for even kids to use. I can just feel the quality. This set is modern but looks good with all types of cuisines and it looks better than it does in the pictures.Amazing value for the quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pieces My boyfriend bought this set a few months ago. It was the only one we could agree on. It has a nice feel to them, have a very nice simple design, and best of all, has a set of matching steak knives.
