Setting the Chinoiserie Table-Cheap & Chic Flatware


The bamboo flatware above featured in Joe Nye's book Flair is beautiful but pricey, at $150.00 a place setting by Juliska. Here are some great alternatives at less than $10.00 a place setting. For your information, the flatware that looks like real bamboo is generally faux and dishwasher safe. I own the black bamboo from Caspari and the natural bamboo from Horchow and love them. Flatware need not be silver or expensive to be Chinoiserie Chic!

Good looking.

I could see a setting with these, preferably the black ones.

Love the touches of pink in the flowers.

I love the black Caspari just as much as the expensive ones.

The black caspari flatware is nice, but the quality is better for picnics and outdoor eating. I believe they are dishwasher safe, but I'm a little hesitant. Overall though, they are definitely a great lookalike at an excellent price!
