Crafted with a heavier weight and texture surface treatments, our luxury melamine has the appearance of real ceramic. The melamine is 100% melamine (not all brands are), shatter resistant, and BPA free. Table art that is beautiful enough to dress the table for any indoor or outdoor gathering yet offers the practicality of of being virtually unbreakable and dishwasher safe. Our glassware in highest quality Polycarbonate, Tritan, and Acrylic is shatter resistant and dishwasher safe. Our coordinating triple ply "soft touch" paper napkins and placemats made from recycled paper complete the look of the fashionably dressed table. Our matching gift sets (many sweetly paired with laguiole utensils or tea towels) and our broad range of accent pieces within each collection goes beyond the typical melamine ranges found elsewhere on the market.
