Round out your essential dinnerware with our selection of contemporary dinner plates and dinner bowls. First, decide if you want a couple of sets - one for casual weeknight meals and one for formal fine dining - or if one versatile set will suffice. Also consider what size of plate and bowl you need and how you want to portion out salads, soups and mains. As you explore our collection of dinner plates, think about the colours, styles and materials that you like and how each can fit within your existing aesthetic. Creative contrasts at the dinner table can go a long way too, and you needn't shy away from textural variation either.
As you explore our dinner plates and dinner bowls, think about the details that inspire you. Do you like modern farmhouse-inspired motifs that feature earthy tones or stoneware bowls that are partially glazed to allow for tonal variation? Explore glazed dinner plates featuring rubbed edges for subtle detail while you eat. Bring an air of elegance to your next meal with the fluted edges and beaded detail of our Leila collection.
When it comes to dinner bowls, consider how the bowl is made to determine what to place in it. For example, cereal bowls can often double as pasta bowls. They're also much deeper than soup bowls, which tend to be shallower. For your favourite cool treat, ice cream bowls might be just the ticket, and petite stoneware bowls provide the perfect place to serve berries.
Colours & Patterns
For crisp, clean elegance and easy-to-pair options, choose minimalist dinner plates featuring neutral hues, such as white or stone. Add a touch of visual flair to mealtime with our medallion or floral patterns infused with vibrant colours. Opt for blue-and-white motifs for something classic, or showcase your contemporary-casual aesthetic with turquoise or oatmeal hues.
Porcelain and stoneware are versatile choices when you're looking for dinner plates that can transition from casual meals to festive occasions. Plus, they're durable - ideal for everyday use. Discover unique glazes, from matte satin to reactive and more. For indoor and outdoor dining, consider pieces made from melamine, a durable material that is nearly unbreakable. Plus, our melamine dinnerware adds the look and feel of porcelain for refined dining.
Perfecting the Place Setting
After you've selected your new dinner plates, consider the other features that make up your ideal table setting.
