DH and I need to buy a new dinnerware set soon. I've picked out the Roulette set from Crate and Barrel: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/roulette-dinnerware/f11023
DH currently complains about the size of our dinner plates, and prefers to use salad plates for portion control.
Our dishes are available in open stock, so we don't have to buy the standard 4 or 5 peice set.
So, I could go with the standard 10.5 inch dinner plate and 8.25 salad plate, or I could buy open stock, and use the 8.25 inch plate as a dinner plate and the 6.25 inch small plate as a salad plate. Would the latter just be ridiculously small? Our current plates are around 11 inches, so either way we are scaling down.
I looked at the plates in person, but that was over a year ago, and I don't remember much except I liked them.
