Design Daily: DVF Home Colorblock Flatware


It’s not just for fashion; the colorblock phenomenon is seeping into every aspect of design, including this on-trend tableware from Diane Von Furstenburg Home. 

New for fall, the muted canary and red flatware is accented with neutral gray, beige and black. It’s a sophisticated match for the table—rather than the neon pinks and purples that I’m loving for clothing right now. With its clean lines, the graphic pattern mixes well with other silverware. Add a fork and knife to your next table setting for a punch of modern texture.

If I’m being honest, I’ve never actually thought about my silverware. I’ve picked up the odd mid-century fork or knife at estate sales, but I’ve never fallen for the idea of an entire matched set of silver. That’s why I like this DVF pattern so much. I’d throw it in with my existing pieces, most of which are slim and simple Danish designs.
