Statement Melamine?

What do you think of when I say "melamine"? 

I think of inexpensive, candy-colored utility ware. You know, worthy of picnics and children, but hardly the serveware of stylish parties and mature gatherings.

But recently my suppositions were shattered when I purchased some melamine serving trays and bowls from Target. It was one of those times. I was just walking down a main isle when large amounts of the perfect blue color rewound my last steps :

Ikat, floral, and geometric melamine options from Target

As it turns out, there are many amazingly styled melamine options out there.

Did you know that melamine is a thermal-setting chemical compound that has fire-retardant properties? Beyond dishes, it is used in Formica, dry-erase boards, glues, and fabrics.
