Mini Trend: Do Not Dispose

Who could guess that ubiquitous paper plates and plastic cups could be so chic? 

Okay, so these products are not your average picnic disposables — these plates, cups and decanters are meant for “keeps”.

Rendered largely in glass, white porcelain, and/or ceramics, the trend of designers stealing from the take-out windows is covetable for the clean lines and ability to make you look at the “everyday” in a new way.

The best part? Both your pocketbook and the planet will be delighted because you definitely won’t be throwing these items out.
