For those of us who are older and are NOT minimalists and enjoy true art instead of a frame around a pitch fork on the wall, this is perfect! And as I stated it is simple yet not boring, but elegant. And for those young newbies starting their registries, here is some advice, 18/10 flatware should only be your option no matter the pattern. Anything less, well let's put it this way, if you take your spoon and dig it into some ice cream it won't bend at all. It's made to last until your older kids accidently scrape off there dishes into the garabe can with your silverware with it and you need to buy another set. Enough said.
