There’s always bamboo, plastic or melamine, but there’s something kind of cool and unexpected about tin plates- Sadly, most of the tin plates I’ve seen are a little too “camper-y”- However, these ones by Mottahedeh, look incredibly chic and fabulous-
Spotted in the March ’10 Martha Stewart Living (photo by Lucas Allen for MSL), I’m loving the dragon design- available here.
