Creating bold melamine tableware that's truly an experience to behold, Bongenre has won our hearts with their innovative real life pattern inspiration. Honestly, we couldn't just pick one... Our favorite for Spring: the Flowershow Gift Sets ($27-60) with stunning floral specimens on a pastel background. Other front runners -- the Coral Pattern ($36-$60), is elegant but exotic, and the textile in tableware trend continues with more substance in the Susani Collection ($25-$130/entire set).
The Susani Collection has a special cultural inspiration, Central Asian textiles. Suzanis are traditional embroidered textiles of Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. Originating from the Persian word for needle (suzan), the radiating geometric and organic woven patterns fill galleries online and in museums. Suzanis make a prominent appearance in Bold Abstractions: Textiles from Central Asia & Iran, on view until May 9th at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles.
