Ikea plates are so last year; this summer, it’s all about fun, frilly and picture-perfect plates.
For those who find partying at home is more their style, you’ll be relieved to learn that there’s a new crockery trend coming straight for you, and it’s about to up the ante on your hostess game: reader, meet the fun, frilly plates that have become du rigeuer for those in the know.
Indeed, curly crockery has taken the place of its Ikea counterparts to make for a more exciting tablescape. One of the pottery purveyors who is spearheading the trend is London-based designer Karin Hossack, whose pretty, pastel-hued plates that she sells under her brand’s name, KC Hossack, are a go-to for tablescape-conscious hostesses.
As the saying goes, if it doesn’t end up on the internet, did it even happen? So really, we need to be upping that tablescape game. Make yours a photogenic spread with some fun, frilly and picture-perfect plates.
