Craft and artisanal foods are all the rage, and table design is following suit, with simple, rustic table fashions suggesting a table set with tender, loving care. In its new Arabesca dinnerware, Vietri also reflects a new wave in Mediterranean cuisine: a blend of Middle Eastern and Italian recipes, condiments and more. Inspired by Arabic motifs found in decorative tiles in Southern Italy, each piece is hand-painted in Umbria in a traditional raw umber palette on stoneware-quality terra bianca clay (dinner plates, $63; bowls, $57). Dinnerware Depot, 418 Interstate Court, Sarasota, (941) 342-8242.
