reminds me of the 80s
Yes, the 80s Trump/Reagan look is something to be wary of, but the lines and the brushed satin finish give this setting a nice contemporary look.
I know someone who would like these:http://www.moviewavs.com/php/sounds/?id=gog&media=WAVS&type=Movies&movie=Austin_Powers_In_Goldmember"e=smartypants.txt&file=smartypants.wav
bit too ancien regime for even my tastes, but I agree the actual lines are good.
I love the shapes, too. The gold isn't my style, but I know it would look awesome with certain place settings.
The look is updated from the last time around. I think it could look fresh in the right context.
Matte and bronze-y, hot.
I think it would look great with other gold tones mixed with burnt reds and oranges.
I am a Classic sterling silver guy.I would rather have beaten old multi pattern sterling silver than anything else. Hey , that is what i have. Lucky!
Gold flatware is just wrong. Don't know why.
who is the czar that requested these? not okay - its its a fad and we all know what that means.. next year, you are shopping for flatware again.
who syas silver/ chrome isn't a fad thats quickly running out of time-who cares what is or is not a fad...if you like it buy it...if not then don't; at least we're finally getting some more options in design apart from wenge, microfibre and chrome!!!
Totally HOR! Especially when its not too shiny. If anyone has ever been to NAN- Thai food restaurant in Atlanta (you must go! It's delicious! Gorgeous interiors!), then you'll see just how beautiful it can be!
I think it depends on the form. I bought a set of brass flatware on a trip to Thailand that I love. Instead of cluttery stuff, I try to buy something on trips that I can incorporate into my home. Art, dishes, textiles...I want to be one of those old ladies with a set of Moroccan coffee mugs and Haitian voodoo flags. :)I digress...like many things, the form makes it or breaks it.
These with Calvin Klein Mahogany plates, woooof.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
