That's why we've designed the stunning yet subtle Iris Blue Collection! Discover what makes this modern, everyday design unique, explore each piece in the blue dish set, and get inspired to set a table you love. 

The Importance of Loving Your Everyday Dinnerware

With the hustle and bustle of life, it can be difficult to slow down and be thankful for the home around you. We’re happy to let you in on our secret: loving your everyday dinnerware is essential when it comes to creating a stylish but cozy kitchen and dining room. When you take the time to curate a collection you and your family love, your home becomes a stylish sanctuary. 

Introducing: The Iris Blue Collection

If you're looking for a colorful yet subdued everyday dish set, look no further than our Iris Blue Collection! Featuring a variety of patterns and striking blue hues inspired by the beautiful iris flower, this collection will bring a touch of sophistication and style to your home. Celebrate your everyday life around an Iris Blue table setting. 

What's Included in the Iris Blue Collection?

This collection features serving and décor accessories ranging from beautiful blue platters, plates, and trays to hand towels, canisters, mango wood bowls, and more. Savor your time at the table and delight your guests with subtle hues and timeless patterns. From a holiday dinner party to summer entertaining, this collection will never disappoint. 

What Was the Inspiration Behind Iris Blue?

As the cold of winter thaws and sprouts begin to emerge from the earth, the first signs of spring make an appearance! The Iris Blue Collection highlights the renewed energy that Spring brings. We love switching our dishes seasonally, and what better time to do that than springtime? With a modern touch on a classic palette and a wide variety of patterns and hues, we designed the Iris Blue dinnerware collection to help you set a table perfect for welcoming Spring.

What 3 Qualities Make the Iris Blue Collection Unique?

Anyone could tell you at first glance that the Iris Blue dishes stand out from any of our other everyday collections — but what makes them so special? We took care to consider the three elements that make the Iris Blue dinnerware unique from our table to yours:

1. Contemporary Designs

    This isn’t your average everyday dish set. While we always have space in our hearts {and tables} for classic Signature White designs or rustic Fundamentals, sometimes the gathering calls for a more colorful approach. 

    The shapes of each blue serving dish and dinner plate are an elevated version of everyday dishware for setting your table. Feel inspired to create lavish tablescapes by pairing these contemporary designs with another timeless set, or use the entire collection to transform the look of your weeknight dinners with {just a little} effort and a beautiful payoff. 

    2. Iris Blue Color

      Feeling blue has a whole new meaning! After finding inspiration in the natural beauty of the iris flower, blue dishes have become an instant favorite in our family's homes for everyday sets. With a timeless white background color and a mix of pale and deeper blue accents, these dishes have a serene color palette that helps create a cool and complete look on any table.

      3. Patterns

        These beautiful dinnerware pieces feature hand-designed patterns loosely inspired by a plant's life stages. The different shapes in each pattern reflect the natural progression of fauna, with different versions of organic seedling bursts and petal shapes painted on each blue dish. 

        Iris Blue Dish Pattern Options:

        • Burst—extending tendrils from a center spot, like seeds scattering 
        • Drop—slim, repeating petal shapes 
        • Sprout—like a flower blooming for the first time
        • Pip—small open dots, like fresh seedlings

        When to Use the Iris Blue Collection?

        We love using Iris Blue dinnerware to welcome spring into our homes. The cool and complete look that this collection brings celebrates not only a new time of year but also the stages of life one goes through during that season. Featuring pops of blue accents and an effortlessly stylish look, this collection is one of our favorite ones to use to elevate our everyday dinner tables during the Spring months

        But don't let that stop you from using them year-round if you wish! Whether you're looking for blue dinner plates for an oyster roast in the summer or intend on setting an elegant white and blue table setting for a winter soirée, our Iris Blue dishes are designed for any gathering. Dare to be different and set a table you love throughout the year.
