Picnic like it’s 1959.

“Good design is for everyone.” Russel Wright, a prolific American industrial designer who worked from the 1920s through the 1960s, brought this idea to life in his distinctive and practical designs for the everyday home. Wright believed that the table was the center of the home (um, us too!) and his Residential Collection dinnerware, designed in the 1950s, was one of the most popular melamine lines at the time. It even won a Good Design Award from the Museum of Modern Art! Take home a piece of history (and infuse your table with some retro attitude while you’re at it) with his collection. Everything is available in either creamy bone or a punchy aqua. These dishes are begging to be taken outside for a barbecue or picnic—the melamine is practically indestructible and easy to clean.
