Hand painted Italian dinnerware sets with matching serveware and kitchenware
thatsArte.com features more than 80 Italian dinnerware sets, authentic pieces of high craftsmanship, handmade and hand painted by talented artisans.
Browse for the dinnerware set that better fits your style: classic dinnerware patterns from Deruta and Gubbio, geometric designs from Deruta, Tuscan fruit and flower tableware. Each place setting is complemented with Italian serving pieces and Italian kitchenware like platters, serving bowls, pitchers, trays, butter dishes, canister sets, ceramic cookie jars and many other handmade tableware pieces.
Our Italian pottery is never commonplace, even when it comes to the most classic Italian tableware, like the Deruta Raffaellesco or the Ricco Deruta. Available in every pottery store in Deruta, we were not satisfied with just any artist painting the Deruta classics. A thorough screening was needed to bring you the quality you deserve and that we feel proud to offer. For our Italian classic dinnerware we've chosen Fima, a small, family run company, whose pottery owns an exquisite elegance and a subtle refinement. They produce an incredible choice of serving pieces and kitchenware items, painstakingly hand painted in a large number of patterns. In addition to the most common items, they also offer gravy boats, espresso sets, different sizes of candle holders, tea pots, parmesan shakers, bowls and canisters in many sizes and shapes to fit any need.
For our geometric tableware we had no doubts: we love Eugenio Ricciarelli and D&G Designs, for their use of rich colors and luxurious creativity. Geometrico patterns, also called Vario, are designed for any table, be it formal or everyday, through décor changes and design trends. It's a rare pleasure to mix and match hand painted geometric patterns to create original dinnerware sets or unique kitchen decorations. D&G Designs is also strikingly good in creating new designs, like the Millerighe, a set of modern tabletop ceramic pieces and modern home décor accents that is among our best sellers.
Hand painted Italian tiles, backsplashes, tile panels, table tops, stair risers
Our large collection of exquisitely hand painted ceramic tiles and hand painted ceramic panels is unique.
We have brought to you from Sicily, Deruta and Civita traditional hand painted tile murals for backsplashes, fireplaces, baths and showers, bathroom/kitchen wall and floor tiles, individual accent tiles, stair risers, tiled table tops and our very much favorite tile “rugs”, beautiful panels that can be used as murals but also as unique floor decorations in combination with hardwood.
For our modern tile collection we’ve chose the works of ND Dolfi, their handmade tiles -shouldn’t we actually say art tiles? -being the ultimate luxury decoration accents.

Luxurious Italian home décor accents
Shopping for Italian decorative pottery is the best way to make your home your own, or to make a unique, personalized gift for those who mean the most to you.
Some ideas? Hand painted wall plates, centerpieces, wall clocks, planters, vases, umbrella stands, candle holders …
Let’s briefly meet some of the Italian artists we love. We’re very proud to introduce you to an acclaimed Sicilian ceramicist from Caltagirone: Giacomo Alessi. His unique Italian pottery pieces, like the head planters, the wall plates and the candle holders, speak of Sicily, of the region’s rich colors and Baroque heritage.
Let's now jump to Umbria, the green heart of Italy. Placed apart on a steep hill, protected by the surrounding mountains, Gubbio has been for many centuries a production center of fine Italian majolica. We have selected for you the splendid work of Magnanelli and Rampini.
Ceramiche Magnanelli specializes in traditional Umbrian pottery. Elaborate dragons, leaves and baskets are hand painted on handmade centerpieces, footed jars and umbrella stands, all bearing a charming antique finish and making luxurious home décor accents.
Ceramiche Rampini is known for its charming Renaissance pattern which decorates not only their
refined Italian tableware but also their decorative ceramics, such as simple yet touching wall plates, lovely planters and umbrella stands.
In Deruta we meet Alvaro Binaglia and Francesca Niccacci, two of the finest artists of istoriato pottery, a Renaissance style ceramic with elaborated scenes (stories) or portraits. Their wall plates and centerpieces need no introduction to Italian pottery collectors.
Our next destination is Montelupo in Tuscany where we meet ND Dolfi. Their handmade vases, fruit baskets and centerpieces have such a strong personality and physical relevance to represent the ultimate decoration touch in any home, be it modern or classic.
Fine Italian tablecloths, placemats and runners
Made of the finest natural cottons and linens and woven by talented master weavers, Pardi’s table linens are remarkable accents of true Italian home style. Be inspired by our large collection of coordinating tablecloths, runners, napkins and placemats woven with traditional Italian patterns and new, elegant designs, inspired from nature and modern living. Since 1949 Tessitura Pardi table linens represent the timeless values of Italian artistry.
Hand crafted Italian pewter tabletop and flatware
Pewter is a wonderful material … good to touch and feel, to own and cherish. After a long research in the area of Brescia, in the north of Italy, where the craftsmanship of pewter is deeply rooted in history and tradition, we have selected the pewter tabletop and flatware made by Cosi Tabellini, designers and pewter makers since 1954
