We admit we're boring. (Although we prefer to think that we just have simple tastes.) We don't usually like patterns on our dinnerware and our linens. But there's something about the de Young Leaves Tableware that's appealing.
It could be the freshness and simplicity of the design. Or that the placemats and napkins are made of linen. Or that the cup, plates, bowl, and bud vase are silk-screened porcelain. Or it could be that it's made for the de Young by local designer Lotta Jansdotter -- and we're a little melancholy because she's in the process of moving from SF to Brooklyn.
On sale from $8.99 to $12.99 at the de Young Museum Store.
