Fashion Meets Flatware: Diane von Furstenberg Colorblock Flatware
From the catwalk to the tabletop, the color blocking trend is taking over. Diane von Furstenberg Colorblock Flatware is the latest example of how fashion and home design go hand in hand. Every-day silverware sets can be such a bore, but these add just the right amount of color to dress up your table. Who says functional pieces can’t be fancy? Use it daily or save it for a special dinner party. The five-piece set ensures that you will have the right utensils whatever the occasion. Offered in canary yellow and lilac red, these two hues are paired with gray, beige, and black in a geometric pattern. Each piece is hand-painted enamel on steel and dishwasher safe, which means less clean up for you. The DVF Colorblock Flatware can be purchased at Bloomingdale’s (600 N. Wabash Ave., 312-324-7500).
