"What sets Allure apart is its delicate design, which combines the classic aesthetic of porcelain with an eye-catching faceting that adds interest to any culinary masterpiece," said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc.
"When I create a new dish, I envision how it will look as it's being served to the guest. I consider the plate from the very beginning," said Adam Moore, corporate chef, Charlie Baggs Culinary Innovations.
The appeal of the Allure collection emanates from its distinctive faceted design and radiant appearance. The innovative Noble China porcelain body in BoneWhite™ color combines the graceful look of bone china with the strength of hard porcelain. Its lightweight and refined thin profile is contrasted by its durability and uncompromising performance. The Allure pattern, which includes plates, bowls, platters, cups, saucers and more for a sophisticated tabletop, is part of Libbey's Artistry Collection™ featuring SCHÖNWALD dinnerware, Spiegelau and Nachtmann glassware, and Reed & Barton flatware.
“The beautiful interplay of light and shadow on the Allure dinnerware adds astonishing dimension to the art of plating,” Dountas added.
*SCHÖNWALD dinnerware is covered by a 5-year limited lifetime warranty against edge chipping.
