We remember the days when the shape of plates were pretty much the same across the board. You always knew your plates were going to be round and you just had to focus on what color and what size.
Now when shopping for plates you have more than just round or round as your option. Thanks to the popularity of television shows such as Iron Chef America & Top Chef that highlight plating and presentation we're introduced to new plate styles on a continuous stream. It's leaving us wanting to purchase similar plates to spice up our own dinnertable.
We're glad that we can get very similar options to the ones the great chef's have — without having to spend our life savings. We found some of our favorite shapely dinnerware at IKEA and recently discovered that Crate & Barrel is selling a new line of plates based off of restaurants and television shows like Iron Chef America — designed by Chef Ed Leonard. We're not sure what makes one choose square over round, or oval over rectangular — but we're interested in knowing what shape you like best.
