I am an Interior Designer and when my husband and I got married 5 years ago, I wanted to select a china pattern that I felt was classic and timeless in design. I selected Kate Spade's Union Street pattern and I absolutely LOVE it! When the table is set, the simple elegant contrast of black and white with the platinum band is stunning. The oval serving platter is a bit on the small side, especially considering I have place settings to serve 12 people. However, I have supplemented my china with other serving pieces in the color of my accent wall in the dining room.
