Dinner sets – our pick of the best

Looking for a new dinner set? From statement colour to full-on pattern, we’ve picked a selection of the best dinner sets to brighten up any dining occasion.

Whether you’re throwing a dinner party or simply looking to add a splash of colour to mealtimes, a new dinner set is the perfect solution to instantly brighten up any dining occasion. Buying new tableware needn’t be expensive, with many places offering simple white value sets – ideal for first time buyers or those on a budget. On the other hand if you’re looking to invest choosing a bold colour or patterned set can instantly add personality to mealtimes. For the country dweller a classic red with polka dots is a great choice and for those looking for more of a modern approach an on-trend slate grey set is just the thing. We’ve chosen our favourite new designs to help inspire you, whatever your style.
