With home trends this season shouting out a mix of indie prints, and metallic and baroque statement pieces, how about something neutral as well? Me Gusta, a six-month-old brand from Mumbai, started by foodies and globetrotters Rishi and Rachita Dalal, offers a selection of stoneware and porcelain plates, trays and platters, all designed in house and bearing clean and simple designs.

Mediterranean effect

“Me Gusta, which means ‘I like’ in Spanish, stands for everything we like-food, travel and design. When we (wife and I) travelled

abroad extensively, we wanted to do something creative and thought of designing ceramics as we didn’t find good ones here,” says Rishi Dalal, an exporter. His wife, a graphic designer, helped make the dream a reality. Dalal says that Me Gusta’s designs are simple, clean and bold and that they don’t follow the trend of ornate and flowery traditional patterns. “We pick our inspiration

from our world travels, especially the Mediterranean, which is also in tandem with our brand name,” says Dalal.

Pencil drawings

The products are divided into six categories — Spice Series, Salt and Pepper, Around the World, Antipasti, Cherry Blossom and U Pasta. Dalal highlights Salt and Pepper, “an extension of pencil drawings and made up in black and white” and their Antipasti collection, a set of plates and platters in porcelain with drawings of little mushrooms, fish and curly lines. Though stoneware is not the first material you think of for gifts, Dalal points out that it enhances the design of the plates. Me Gusta can be ordered online from their website.

The Antipasti series of plates are priced at Rs 250 per piece and the Salt and Pepper at Rs 375 per piece.
