One of my favorite events is coming up, the Fall New York Tabletop Market, which presents the best of new tableware. It brings me to think about my planning the table of my upcoming dinner next week in celebrating the New Year. 21 people are going to sit around the table and it will be a celebration of white tableware. Also known as whiteware, is it becoming increasingly sophisticated and interesting. Designers are exploring sculptural and unorthodox forms that revisit the entire notion of white tableware. The result is extraordinary dining possibilities. Setting a dining table is one of the most accessible ways to express one's personal taste. However, nothing dresses up a table like cutting edge, sophisticated whiteware to complement a contemporary lifestyle.
