Art is what gives satisfaction to our sensibility and it truly knows no boundaries. Art has come down to our tables in the form of exclusive and artistic dinnerware. Dinnerware embodies in itself art, history, and industry. As an art, it is conceived and given shape, color, pattern and design by the artist and then is manufactured by dinnerware industry in such a manner that it does not lose its functionality and can be used for intended purpose over a period of years , and even centuries, thus creating history. In fact, decorative art is strongly reflected in the history of dinnerware. Whether it be cubist or impressionistic, classical or deco, Mediterranean or Oriental, decorative dinnerware has always been there in a wide variety of range as an everyday item and also as a collectible.
Present Trends of Dinnerware
During its journey, dinnerware has been through many changes. The present trends of dinnerware can only tell whether the artistic inclination remains in it even today or not.
Vibrant Colors and Patterns: – Dinnerware in bright oranges, yellows, gold metallics and blues are giving warmth and life to the subdued background of homes. Ethnic prints including Native American patterns, African motifs and Asian batiks truly stand apart against the vibrant color scheme.
Browns and Blacks: – It's true that white will never lose its place but for a while, browns and blacks are in limelight. Brown with all its shades, from dusky to coffee and even dark chocolate, are in great demand. These colors are even contrasted with colors like yellow, blue and green to bring dramatic effects. Black is also there to shine with pride. Contrasted mainly with whites and sometimes with golden shades, black is here to stay.
Eco Dinnerware: – The passion for clean environment has led to recycled dinnerware which is fast catching up with the masses. Apart from being made from recycled products, these items reflect shades of green- jades and olives- along with attractive patterns representing nature in form of leaves and other foliage etc.
Fancy Grapics: – Odd, unconventional, peculiar and even hand drawn whimsical and abstract graphics are gaining unimaginable popularity. They are, all the more, adding interest to our tables.
Irregular Shapes: – Any shape other than round is in. Although the standard round plates and bowls can never vanish but the shapes like star, squares, geometric shapes, organic shapes are fast making ways into hotels, restaurants, home kitchens and dining tables. Appetizers are now served on rectangular plates, and entrees in oversize bowls. Even colors of dishes are considered while finalizing dessert plates, such as a plate with rose-colored outer edge and gold trim for creme brulee!
