The LBD of dinnerware.

A mid-century modern design icon meets the most widely sold American dinnerware in history. Russel Wright is credited with bringing modern design into American homes over the first half of the 20th century. His line, launched in 1939, has trademark curvy silhouettes and rounded corners—they’re so easy to dress up and down, in fact, that Wright likened them to “the little black dress." Today, Bauer is the only place making the Russel Wright American Modern line (and we got to head to their Southern California property to see it in action). This set of handmade ceramics brings the vision together with Russel Wright's exclusive designs in a gorgeous glaze and a range of color options.

How we're setting the table: In eight confection-worthy colors, these pottery pieces are a real treat to mix and match. Opt for the complete dinner set (featuring a dinner plate, salad plate, and handled bowl for soup or sides) so every placemat is covered, then add on the serving pieces for optimum matching power. We're pretty smitten with that playful coral if we do say so ourselves. A few noteworthy details? The lug bowls feature fun, sturdy handles for easy serving and vintage flair, while the platters are stealing our hearts with gently curved and raised edges, perfect for making your birthday cake or crackly-golden chicken the center of attention.

Highland, CA
Decades of history are baked into these ceramic pieces from Bauer Pottery. Take their classic mid-century modern designs, for example—they’re Hollywood hot and California cool. An essential figure in their work was the famed industrial designer Russel Wright, who believed that the table was the center of the home (we’re inclined to agree). Wright was immensely influential in bringing modern design to American homes. Though the Bauer brand was shuttered in the 1960s, it was revived in 1998 and the iconic Russel Wright ceramics designs have been brought back to life. Today, it’s still the most widely sold American dinnerware ever in history.
