Celebrate Halloween with these spooky salad plates from PATCH NYC and Crate & Barrel. Each glazed porcelain plate features a black and white woodcut design against a high-contrast color scheme.

Serve a meal on the most technical dinner plates ever. Dobreff Design’s square plates are handmade with real carbon fiber, sandwiched under glass to make them smooth and food safe. They look great, but aren’t very practical, as they’re expensive, handwash only, and not dishwasher or microwave safe.
