Red Dinnerware & Place Settings

Of all the colors to associate with food, red is perhaps the best. Red dinnerware is an excellent choice for a meal that’s intended to be sensual and romantic, as red is frequently associated with sex. Red is also a common dining room paint color, given that it’s a known appetite stimulant. Oddly enough, though, a study published in Appetite, a scientific journal, found that people actually eat less when food is served on a red plate. Although that might appear to be contradictory, my guess is that it had something to do with the way the food looked against the red background. Food tends to look it’s absolute best against white plates (depending on the dish, of course), so it’s possible that the red dinnerware made people feel compelled to eat less. In my book, that’s a good thing. Most of us could stand to eat a little less, and any dirty psychological tricks we can use to do that are fair game.

But back to red dinnerware – I’ve chosen some of my favorite red dinnerware pieces and place settings, and you can click on any of them to get more details and purchasing information. Enjoy!
