Discover the exquisite beauty of sterling silverware. Silverware can add charm and character to a table. Because they are highly resistant to staining and rusting, eating utensils made of sterling silver are a durable addition to any kitchen. Create a distinct look for place settings with different handle shapes and designs. A great variety of silver styles is available from Wallace, Towle, Gorham, Kirk Stieff and more.
For modern dining rooms filled with smooth straight edges, square handle silverware is a fine choice. These forks, spoons and knives feature handles with flat ends, creating an eye-catching squarish shape with pointed or notched corners. Silverware with square handles is the perfect match for a set of square dishes, visually echoing the right angles found in the bowls and plates.
Prefer a softer dining room look? Try round or oval dishes and a set of round handle silverware. Sterling silverware in this style is often very smooth and shiny, and features rounded up handles. The tips of round handles often widen, creating a rounded ending section that is easy to grip while eating. Round handle silverware is usually smooth and shiny, so pairing it with colorful dishes will create stunning reflections with every movement.
Ornate silverware is a timeless option that complements other vintage dining room décor. Forks, knives and spoons in the ornate style tend to have delicately sculpted designs on the handles that add texture and complexity in a subtle way. Try pairing ornate silverware in sterling silver with handsome dark wood furniture in curving, carved designs.
Many people prefer to match their silverware and their dishes. Others simply have different numbers of guests from night to night. Whatever the reason, a silverware set is an excellent way to keep track of how many place settings are available in what style. Sets of silverware typically feature place settings for one person, four people or eight people, but the numbers can vary. Additional sets can ensure lovely place settings for any extra guests, as well as providing more silverware if a piece of the current set is ever lost.
