    The With Love Noir formal dinnerware ($159 for a 5-piece place setting) set combines the quality of Waterford with the signature touch of a true designer. The china has a black band and a gold chain and rope border, which is carried out in a different way on each piece. We love the metallic details and the deco feel of the design.

  5. Spode Blue Portofino Collection

    Spode's best-selling Blue Italian line has been around for 250 years and is getting a modern update with the introduction of Blue Portofino (from $20), which features playful lines and a "Soho" shape.

  6. Mikasa Hammersmith Collection

    We love the metallic hammered band ($80 for a five-piece place setting)! This motif adds an elegant-yet-contemporary touch to the table.
