I have a similar rack from crate and barrel (CB) about 10 years ago (with more flatware). Crate and barrel doesn't offer it anymore. I bought this as a housewarming gift since I have received so many compliments on the one the CB set I have. This product looks nice!
My father owned a set of hanging silverware from Crate &Barrel, but lost a lot of pieces. We could only find 20 piece poor quality hanging silverware other places. He is very happy with the purchase. The pieces are a nice weight, but maybe a tad awkward to hold with the hole in the middle.
The product was "thinner" than what I expected, i.e. the handles do not have a substantial feel like silverware. But it is perfectly fine for casual dinning and it is ecstatically pleasing on the counter top. The display rack makes it easy to grab a placesetting and go. The prone on my set came slightly bent and when i tried to straighten it out it broke, but for the price I guess it is what it is.
I been looking for a nice set of Hanging Flatware, Overstock.com had the Maison Luxe set forty dollars cheaper then anyone else. This was purchased to replace a set twenty years old. For every day use you can't go wrong. Feels good, about the right weight this set should last a long time and I would buy again
This is an absolutely beautiful flatware set that hangs a service for 8 in a small space. We get more complements on this set than any other we have ever had. The flatware is strong and with a beautiful finish. I don't know how anyone could not like this set. The stand for the service is strong and durable. This will be a set of flatware that is sure to last for years to come! A great deal and a great item!
I saw this set at my sister-in-law house few years ago. She got it from Crate and Barrel. They don't carry it anymore :( I was very excited that I found it at Overstock. I bought one set first and found that's exactly the same kind. I purchased another one for the future. I am very happy with the design and the quality.
IT looks good, until you look at the metal finish inside the hanging area. The metal is unpolished, large ridges are clear, and tool marks are abundant. VERY UGLY. Not sure why they would do this, oh i know why, to save money. For a set that is stainless and not budget this is unacceptable. My hanging tower also came with some very visible abrasions. Would not buy, would not recommend.
