It's great to have beautiful silver flatware, but to be honest, it just doesn't get enough face time. I think it's time for fancy silverware to get more exposure, and, it seems, others agree with me.
All the elegance with none of the upkeep... Grain de Couleur Couverts Tea Towel (also comes in fork or knife designs), $39 @ The Conran Shop.
I adore this chandelier for a breakfast nook. So country chic! Even better, it's made of vintage silverware. The appropriately named Eat, Drink, and Be Merry Chandelier, $4800 @ Anthropologie.
