“Burn candles, drink wine, eat from beautiful tableware and never wait for a special occasion”, is a well-known quote that encourages us to enjoy everything that life has to offer. We can hardly make you burn those very candles, drink alcohol, or throw yourself headlong into adventures if you don’t want to – however, we still insist on beautiful tableware.
Setting the table and serving food on carefully and tastefully selected tableware using stylish cutlery will create an incredibly aesthetic and pleasant atmosphere for each of your meals, turning an ordinary lunch or dinner into a small celebration every time. Do not neglect this opportunity – and to make it easier for you to choose, we present the most relevant tableware trends for 2022.
Snow-white plates, salad bowls, and cups without the slightest color accent are an exciting find for the coming season. Do not think that such a solution will look boring and even bureaucratic, like in some cafe or canteen. The neutrality of white allows you to focus on your chosen tableware’s appearance and presentation entirely. It will ensure a harmonious serving no matter what items you select.
Another advantage of white ceramics and porcelain is their combinatorial nature. You can safely arrange such dishes both on a discreet or dark, as well as on a bright tablecloth, and complement the serving with contrasting plain napkins and bouquets of flowers in white vases. If smooth plates and cups still seem too straightforward to you, then you may well choose options with a graceful convex pattern.
For those who crave color
Pantone’s tableware colors can safely guide those who want to add color to the table’s atmosphere. The Color Institute’s trends also guide tableware designers – and the result is always incredibly interesting.
So, if you still insist on colored tableware, then be sure to take a closer look at the following shades:
The subtle charm of asymmetry
Perfectly round plates and cups are classics that have become timeless. Square plates and dishes are minimalists, which is gradually becoming classics too. And since the classics are not going anywhere from us, why not experiment?
For 2022, designers have presented many options that can make the table setting much more enjoyable. Dishware with deliberately uneven, as if hand-sculpted edges, ceramic serving plates, and salad bowl in the form of leaves, saucers in the shape of funny animals, hearts, and starfish – such a variety turn the set table into an incredibly beautiful and extraordinary still life. Most importantly, do not overdo it: balancing the serving of dishes with traditional design items is always worth it.
There is always place for patterns
We have already spent a lot of time talking about the colors for dishes – but this does not mean that in 2022 you will find exclusively monochrome. It is not worth giving up patterns and prints on plates and cups, especially if you learn a little more about fashionable solutions for 2022. And we are happy to mention the most relevant:
Authentic chic with colored glass
The colored glass has made a splash in the fashionable table setting. Where did they come from, and who turned them into a current trend, it is difficult to say now. Perhaps one of the designers remembered the Rummer – wine glasses, popular in Northern Europe in the 16-17 centuries. Pleasant natural shades of glass, barrel shape, catchy decorative reliefs – all this is repeated in serving items today.
On the eve of 2022, manufacturers offer whole sets of carved glasses and goblets in various shades – from green and blue to brown and dark pink. By matching them to plates of the same tone or color scheme, you can set the table in authentic chic.
Those on the right and left
In preparation for the upcoming season, the decorators did not ignore the cutlery – after all, everything in the serving should be impeccable. Of course, no one canceled knives, forks, and spoons made of traditional stainless steel, but if you still strive for a stylish presentation of your favorite dishes, pay attention to the solutions proposed for 2022:
