When my husband and I registered for our wedding, we had a hard time picking out flatware. It was one of the few things we sincerely needed as a new household; between us we had a hodgepodge of cheap IKEA flatware and mismatched, often bent pieces scavenged from past roommates. But somehow everything we looked at seemed either too florid or too modern, with heavy shapes and edges. If you're in a similar place right now, don't forget about Dansk — their classic, timeless sets are always in fashion. Here are three I love.
This first set is modern without being brutalist about it. The lines are clean and sharp, but still with a graceful shape to the bowls of the spoons. This set gets particularly high reviews wherever it's sold.
This design feels a little more traditional to me, nicely rounded and pleasant to hold.
The Torun line is a total classic, and supposedly it was molded by its designer, Torun Bulow-Hube, rolling clay between her fingers until the shapes and dimensions felt just right to hold. Each piece feels natural and pleasant to use.
Do you use any Dansk flatware or serving pieces? To me, they represent some of the best mid-century influences in the kitchen.
