Now that we can slowly start entertaining again (safely, of course), we can start paying more attention to the cookware and dinnerware we use to create and present our culinary masterpieces. From what we make to how we display it, here are five chic tableware and cookware companies to put on your foodie radar. —Jennifer Cox

Fable is a company that sells premium tableware for everyday dining, with a curated collection of sustainably crafted goods. Their collections are all thoughtfully considered, with colours and styles that complement each other and work seamlessly with the atmosphere of your home.

Our Place’s beautiful collections are designed with the cultures and places that make up the fabric of the modern multi-ethnic kitchen in mind. Their thoughtful designs are ethically sourced and sustainably produced, too. Our favourite buy: the best-selling Always Pan ($195) is a do-it-all wonder designed to replace eight traditional pieces of cookware. Plus, it comes in such pretty colours!
Wyrth isn’t just about the on-trend products they carry; they pride themselves on their good-old hospitality, too. Whether you visit them in-store or order from them online, they always present a beautiful range of dinner and serving ware, barware, bakeware, table linens and more. Our favourite buy: the 12-Piece Rockaway Dinnerware Set ($60) is simple, effortless, stylish and practical.
Copper cookware is all the rage, as pots that are made of copper are durable, hygienic, corrosion-resistant and ideal heat conductors. In fact, copper conducts heat five times better than iron and 20 times better than stainless steel. And Falk has everything you need to cook like a pro. Our favourite buy: the Stock Pot ($615) is the quintessential piece of a complete kitchen.
