Dune Road Designs





Last month I was contacted by a company called Dune Road Designs.
Have you heard of them?

It’s a company that was started by three women who wanted to create some dinnerware with a nautical look and feel. 
Something that not only would look good but could easily be used on a boat, deck or even on the dining room table. 
They so graciously sent me a sampling to try out.

After some shipping issues I finally received my box. I was so excited to get it.
I received a dinner plate, a salad plate, a set of 4 cups and a pack of napkins.

They are made of high quality melamine. 
I know when you hear melamine you think cheap plastic but these are not. They are far from it. 
They may cost a bit more but the quality is not like anything I’ve seen at the stores.

I was surprised at just now substantial they are.
They have the feel of stoneware without the weight.

The dishes have some depth to them which keeps your food on your plate. 
I love that about them. 
I have some thin melamine and I’ve had things slide right off if you aren’t careful. 
Especially if you’ve had a glass of wine or two!

The colors and patterns are just beautiful.
The set of 4 cups each have a different design on them. 
A conch shell, a crab, a starfish and seahorse.  
The set of 4 salad plate are sold the same way.

They are dishwasher safe but they are not for the microwave.
I hope they will add more of a description on their site to include this information. 
Some size information would be good too.
Looks like they may still be tweaking their website a bit.

Dune Road also carries serving pieces, stationary and candles.
The serving pieces are really cute. 
There is a three sectioned appetizer dish that I really like.
What a great gift any of these pieces would make.

I hope you’ll stop by Dune Road Designs and see what they have to offer.

disclaimer: I have been given a sample set from Dune Road Designs but my opinions are my own.

  3. The nautical designs are very nice.. you said they were 'light' in weight.. do you think they might be a bit too 'light' on a rocking boat? Wonder if the company offers a nice basket for storage...Hmmmm I'll go check them out...Your tablescape design did them proud!
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Very lovely!! I've seen this line in various online stores. And good that they are sturdy and durable..., so they last. Nothing worst than throw away plastic products!
