Modern Dinnerware

Modern Dinnerware

Modern dinnerware follows the trends which are usually set by celebrities. Once upon a time, porcelain dinnerware was only present in fine china lines; however, today many casual dinnerware sets are made of porcelain.

Contemporary dinnerware includes odd shapes, including square dinnerware sets, and colorful dinnerware patterns are definitely chic. Black and white dinnerware is currently in style as well. Today, dinnerware made from recycled products is not uncommon.

Dinnerware Endorsed by Celebrities

Rachael Ray has made the Round and Square Pattern popular and she tends to go with bright colors and playful designs.


Rachael relates to the modern woman which is evident by her 30-Minute Meals series of recipes and cookbooks. She emphasizes simplicity in day to day life. Her patterns feature colorful dinnerware, and some of the casual dinnerware sets that she endorses are made of porcelain, while others are made of stoneware.

Paula Deen is into Southern Cooking and the dinnerware she endorses goes right along with southern style. Colorwise, she's a bit more conservative than Rachael Ray, but her patterns are casual, but elegant.

Martha Stewart is more into fine dining vs. simplicity; however, she does endorse casual and fine china. Martha Stewart Dinnerware is a bit more fancy that the previously mentioned celebrities.

Made from Recycled Materials

Green living plays a part in modern trends. I am very impressed with the contribution to this cause made by Viva Terra. Their dinnerware sets are beautiful, and they are made from recycled materials.
