Durable, easy-care melamine plates are often synonymous with casual dining. With their lush illustrations of lilacs, though, these dishes will add a flourish of elegance to your table. Bongenre melamine tableware is designed by Jill Fenichell, an antique-porcelain and pottery dealer for 15 years, whose specialty was 18th-century English blue-and-white porcelain. Porcelain, however, did not reflect the reality of her lifestyle--living in Brooklyn with a husband who loves to put his feet on the coffee table and a son who inhales his food while goofing around with his friends. Bongenre allows her--and you--to enjoy the elegant patterns and colors of vintage porcelain along with the ease of casual living.
