You know that expression, “it’s the little things in life”––well, replace “life” with “the kitchen.” We believe that small things like beautiful, well-made dishes will undoubtedly yield a big difference when it comes to aesthetics among your counters; some well-matched accents can go a long way.
But aesthetics aside, stocking your cabinets with stoneware dishes comes with lots of benefits. Because stoneware ceramics are fired at a relatively high temperature and contain vitreous material, these dishes are sturdy, well-made, often handcrafted, and just stick around a lot longer than something more fragile like lightweight porcelain.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite picks, from timeless brands like Le Creuset to local ones like Farmhouse Pottery, based out of Woodstock, Vermont. You’ll find everything from practical 16-piece dinnerware sets to beautiful mugs and even a stoneware French press. Have a scroll. We have a feeling you’ll be hosting your next dinner party sooner rather than later.
