Do you know what is popular this Fall in dinnerware? I will tell you in a series about the latest Fall collections to hit the stores.
If you are an avid reader of my blog, you will be surprised that I started my tour with Habitat, the store empire from United Kingdom.
Last January, Habitat mandated the young ceramic artist Concetta Gallo to design a range of dinnerware and serving ware for their brand. The results are impressive: a white bone china dinnerware collection full of contrasts and juxtapositions.
Bold patterns are in this Fall
Concetta Gallo came up with an artistic and fresh collection where precious gold finish coexists with drawings, photocopied photo effects and smooth graphic lines. As I show you last Friday with Genevieve Lethu, bold patterns are a popular trend for your table.
What in it the Concetta dinnerware collection?
Flowers, horses and home decor accessories form the key inspirations. One thing that is worth mentioning is that the dinner plates and the side plates are offered in two coordinated patterns. This means your table can look more interesting and unique. Large and medium serveware bowls complete the tabletop collection. I really like the overall look.
Concetta for your home decor
If you prefer to use these patterns for your home decor, you have choices. A rug, a cushion, two vases and a wall art print is available. I suggest you use them wisely. Do not overcrowd the room with all those at the same time unless you oppose the Concetta items to stronger pieces.
