Shape continues to be the defining characteristic in the next pick for the trendy tabletop – modern dinnerware from CB2. Inspired by the Bauhaus arts and crafts movement, this dinnerware collection keeps it simple with a clean, white palette. So simple that they border on utilitarian, these stacking dishes double as lids for one another, or are simply designed to look as great put away as they do displayed on the tabletop. Apart from making a modern statement at mealtime, these dishes are also microwave-, dishwasher- and oven-safe, and totally affordable, ranging in price from $2.95 to $6.95 at CB2.

Villeroy & Boch “Dune Lines” Dinnerware

Another white knight is coming to dinner – the Villeroy & Boch “Dune Lines” Dinnerware collection. This modern dinnerware set makes a chic statement with its simple white color and irregular shapes that seem to have a mind of their own. Almost organic by nature, the Dune Lines collection boasts softly undulating rims on plates and bowls, and a ribbed surface where once again, pattern takes precedence over color. A “flawed” glazing finish lends the collection a natural laissez-faire look. The Dune Lines collection includes complete place settings and serving dishes. Pieces range in price from $10 to $105, available at Macy’s.
