It is actually hard to express how much I love these dishes, because there are so many things I love. I was searching for white dishes that I could invest in. I wanted dishes I could use for casual dinners with my family, or dress up for dinner parties in our new home. After visiting countless stores, hours of online reading and browsing, I came across the Artesano dishes. They are a warm creamy white, not bright white, which is a plus for me. They are stunning, and I now have dishes for 20, plus all serving accessories. They are not light, but not too heavy. The color is amazing, the simple clean look is impressive and everyone loves them. Dress up by mixing Villeroy & Boch designs.
