Serve Luxury on the Dining Table

 

Virasat5

With the vacation season up and running, you are sure to have guests over at your place, some only for a dinner party, a few over for High-tea, while others in for the long haul. Casting a good impression, then, becomes absolutely mandatory.

As the adage goes, ’Old is Gold’; same holds true for your crockery collection as well. We are not suggesting you to treasure and constantly display your 2-decade old cup sets, thereby leaving your friends to think that you really need a tableware-shopping tour! The idea is simply to add a bit of authenticity and class to your cups and plates.

Sanjeev Kapoor’s Fine Bone China Virasat Collection is one such attempt to revive the antique looks on your table. This elegant fine bone china collection is given life to, so we can celebrate the richness of Indian culture.

‘Virasat’ collection derives its name from an admiringly suitable source. If you have ever had a chance to visit the state of hospitality, Rajasthan, then you must be well acquainted with its ceaseless history and architecture. The legendary City Palace of Jaipur unveils a series of baroque Jharokhas (Windows) and leaf motifs in its engineering. Thus, we received a source for our inspiration!

Intricate designs and imperial shapes are available in immensely affordable prices. Hence, what’s better than availing luxury for the general masses!

Things to keep in mind while buying Dinnerware

_CLY8778

It was decades ago when dinnerware was nothing more than a bunch of stainless steel utensils neatly stocked in the kitchen cabinets. Today, the serving plates you showcase on the table say much more about your status and taste than the food served in it. What milk mugs you use depict how updated you are with the Crockery fashion.

Vibrant, colorful plates and bowls are meant for a casual rendezvous with your buddies, while a classy, white fine china dinnerware is taken out of the glass closet to impress your boss.

With such shenanigans, it is essential for you to shop your tableware right. So here are the 4 things to keep in mind while buying dinnerware.

  1. Budget

There is no end to splurging on the crockery industry. From unbelievably affordable to incredibly opulent tableware, you can buy anything that suits your pocket. However, always keep in mind that high-quality dinnerware comes for a good price, and is ultimately a lasting investment.

  1. Purpose of purchase

What aura you wish to create in your dining area determines your choice of tableware. From formal parties to casual coffee klatches, weekend picnics to Sunday barbecue, every occasion demands varied crockery. Most importantly, if the tableware is likely to fall into the hands of children, you’d prefer a more durable and light-weighted dinnerware.

  1. Material

From earthen wares to fine bone china, the material used in making pottery plays a potent role in determining the purpose of their use. For instance, glass, melamine, stoneware, etc., are casual in character while bone china and porcelain are meant for more orderly events.

  1. Replaceability

When purchasing crockery, consider how easily it can be replaced. Items sold on clearance are usually hard to be replaced because of discontinuation. Well established brands like Claycraft are in for the long haul and often produce new pieces in sync with the old designs.

And after all this sorting out, what matters the most is your personal taste. With the correct diligence, you can impose the perfect impression on your guests.

Trends in Tableware

With unconventional cups and plates finding their way to the dinner table, evolving trends in the world of tableware have become the latest ‘in’ thing amongst today’s interior and crockery lovers. The symmetrically white, Fine China plates have been usurped by mismatched color schemes and eclectic designs.

So here are the Top 3 Trends in Tableware designed by Clay Craft that have transformed the whole definition of this industry:

Your Kitchenette is now an Art Gallery

Bucket Big

With bizarre, hand-painted crockery hanging asymmetrically here and there in your kitchen, you cook more passionately. Place setting artistry ranges from vintage styles to zoological prints to the authentic tie and dye effect.

Bye-Bye Traditional Shapes

Gone are the days when the orthodox round shaped plates and standard tea cups were both easy-to-make and easy-to-sell. The advent of offbeat shapes such as oval, rectangular, triangular, square and randomly shaped dishes have set their way from boutiques and personalized tableware stores to mass market retailers. Uneven edges, wrinkled texture and eccentric forms are visually arresting and definitely a show-stealer.

Crockery has become as significant as a hot dish on the menu. Your guests could be more thrilled with your unique tableware collection than that cliché pasta you cook every time. As for yourself, your tea would taste better in a traditionally designed, but contemporarily colored ‘chaiwala’ cup-set designed here at Clay Craft, than those long-established white cups.
