Leading the way in tableware: that’s the Fortessa mandate. The Fortessa collection of dishes, bone china, knives and 18/10 steel flatware are an outlet for an esthetic that is both timeless and innovative, setting the right mood for your fine dining experiences. Founded in 1993 as the Great American Trading Company, with a focus on quality dinnerware for culinary professionals, the brand expanded its offerings to tableware, flatware, glassware and tabletop accessories, eventually consolidating its offerings under the Fortessa name in 2000. The brand intends to dominate the global tableware industry, and we can’t help but think it should: we particularly love their hefty-yet-elegant flatware, and the trendy Accentz serveware collection, which comes in an unusual array of shapes and sizes to really spice up your next cocktail party.
Set the table for winter with these essentials — their warm, sophisticated style will make you forget how chilly it is outside.
