French Twist
Clare’s Wares August 2007
by: Clare Martin

Checks and Balances
In France, the damier pattern (damier means “checkerboard”) is as much of a staple on country dinnerware as its cousin, gingham, is on the tablecloths of rural America.

Napa Style’s Damier Cherry dinnerware gives the tried-and-true pattern a dose of whimsy in the form of bright red cherries. And although their origins are French, these dessert plates will look right at home holding a slice of apple pie at an Independence Day barbeque.

$58 for a set of four dessert plates.
