Dear The Kitchen,
I'm finally planning to replace my college starter dinnerware set with something more sophisticated. I am hoping to find dishes that have a cool or pretty design, but nothing so busy that you can't find your food. I'm open to both modern and retro themes, but the dishes have to be round. I never got onto the square-plate bus.
Unfortunately, my budget isn't much bigger than it was in college. Anyone got any ideas where I should start looking? Thanks!
Without knowing exactly your budget, I'd steer you to the Crate & Barrel Outlet. There are a few dinnerware deals to be had here.
We'll turn this over to the Apartment Therapist and see if he can chime in with any finds.
