Real Housewares of the Web

We've all got the good china. No need to go shopping for that. But what about the less expensive, everyday stuff for the kitchen and tabletop? The good news is, it's just a click away. Here's a brief sample of some of the items we've been coveting lately.

Food52 Provisions

We love Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs Dorman's gorgeous food site. Their store — aptly titled Provisions — leans towards kitchen tools, includes a bunch of exclusive pieces, and relies on an image-driven template to draw you in. Caught our eye: The Brooklyn Slate Cheese Board, Knife and Soapstone Pencil, $48


With its warm modern aesthetic, this vast home and garden site is a great place for table linens and dinnerware. Caught our eye: Linen Impressionist tablecloth, $298

Tortoise General Store

Owner Taku Shinomoto carefully curates this chic minimalist Japanese homewares store in Venice, Calif. Caught our eye: Shinomoto's own range of inky black modular mugs and plates, from $24

Heath Ceramics

West coast potters offer up dining sets, tiles and table linens with a seriously mid-century modern aesthetic. Caught our eye: Their wood-topped container line is now available in olive, aqua, orange and blue, $52


Go straight to the Maison section and click through to 'table top' for pretty, feminine housewares you wont find anywhere else. Caught our eye: Moroccan Berber Silver Tea Glasses, $85 for a set of six (pictured)
