Ceramic plates are becoming one of the most popular unique home decor elements for 2020. Now that we’re unable to dine out, we’re bringing the experience home with unique tableware from our favorite destinations. As Michelin Star Chefs would say, the plate is your canvas! We’ve discovered that there are so many more options than traditional white china. This list is just a taste of the stylish and durable dining sets chefs are using. Discover our favorite collections used in restaurants around the world! 

On top of being beautiful, buying a set of unique dishes is a great way to support local artists. On Wescover we have some of the best ceramicists from around the world sharing their work. We could only pick a few favorites from over 2000 handmade restaurant plates on Wescover— ranging from minimal stoneware, to colorful contemporary ceramics, some quirky hand painted pieces and everything in between.
