I'd like to buy some nice white dinnerware along the lines of a Bernardaud, Apilco, or Raynaud.
I live alone, and I don't entertain at all. The thing is I bought this really nice set of Christolfe silverware which doesn't match my styrofoam plates from Target.
What I like about Apilco is that you can pop it in the microwave, the dishwasher, the oven. The new rectangular plates by Apilco at Williams Sonoma are thick and sturdy. I really like those.
I know The French Laundry has a nice line as well.
But, of all these white, sturdy, everyday plates, what is the finest that can also look nice with my new silverware (in case I have someone over)?
Thanks for your help.
