Go to any Los Angeles restaurant-of-the-moment or cool-girl's dinner party and you'll find one consistency: the dinnerware. It's undeniable: rustic, imperfect ceramic dinnerware is having a moment. It's not only perfectly Instagrammable, but also way more exciting to shop for than the dime a dozen white set you may already own. Each piece is unique, and often handmade by artisans. It just feels more special.
You can't find the dinnerware we speak of just anywhere, so read on for six of our favorite ceramics retailers. We'll take the whole set!
2. H&M Home
This Etsy shop based in Jacksonville, Florida is a goldmine. You can find full sets of dinnerware with matching accessories like match strikers and cake stands.
5. Jan Burtz
If you're down to splurge, Jan Burtz is for you. This delicate, feminine porcelain line is exclusive to New York retailer ABC Carpet & Home.
Here's another L.A.-based gem. You can purchase Sheldon Ceramics on their site, and the price-range is a bit more splurge-y.
