Plates, plates, plates

It’s time for us to get new plates at home! We need normal plates (25/26 cm ones), deep plates and salad plates. The problem is that there are so many beautiful ones to choose from out there!

I guess the easiest option would be to have plain plates. My favourites are Iittala’s Teema plates. Either in white:

Or in black:

The design is by Kaj Franck, and I really like the simplistic form they have. And you can get deep plates and salad plates from the same series as well:

Another option from Iittala is Tuokio plates:

I adore these plates! But as much as I love the blue colour, would I get bored with it at some point?


Marimekko has some amazingly beautiful black & white plates. Like these Rasymatto plates:

I’ve given this quite a bit of thought and have finally been able to narrow my options into 4 choices:

1) white Teema by Iittala

2) Räsymatto by Marimekko

3) Räsymatto by Marimekko, but with a plain white Oiva deep plate

4) Tuokio by Iittala

Which set would you choose?

    I adore Iittala and Marimekko! Tough choice!! Marimekko has some other plates which would compliment the Räsymatto design. Could get those too and do a mix and matchthing. I would also think about the decor of the rooms where the plates will be used. If there is blue in the theme, then I would go with the Tukio plate. If it the interiors were very colourful, then I might go with the Teema design. If the interior was largely white or cream for example, then the Räsymatto design would stand out nicely. What a lovely choice to have!

      Me too, that’s why the choice is so difficult! And I’ve just seen that Arabia is launching a new collection, called Sarastus, and I quite like that as well. Not really helping my case 😉

    I’ve never seen Tuokio before. I love it! I think i’m gonna buy a set of Tuokio soon….But i also feel good and comfortable while watching Räsymatto. I already have set of black Teema and i think it’s my kind of match with Räsymatto.

      It’s sooo difficult to make up my mind! I think your idea of having all of them is the best thing to do! 🙂
