There are lots of great stores, online and / or retail that specialise in this sort of thing. 'Top 3' by design is one of my faves and I love receiving their catalogues.
Ikea Expedit bookcase. (I have 6 of these bookcases. They're so versatile!) For awhile now I've noticed how worn they're looking and so an update will be soon required. They're a mish mash of brands; Maxwell Williams (porcelain), Vue (fine bone china) and Freedom. The bottom picture shows how they have worn. The porcelain gets marked indelibly by cutlery, far more than the bone china which is also whiter and finer looking. I bought the lipped dinner plates from Freedom because I liked their shape. And that lip is practical too! Below are my current 'TOP OF THE LIST' favourites for purchase. They're from Noritake and are designed by Marc Newson. High quality fine bone china. Tick. White. Tick. Lipped plates. Tick. Divine, don't you think?
