  • Q & A
What once was a daring deviation from iittala's simple lines has become one of the most beloved dinnerware designs, and this detailed dinner plate is the latest addition to the sought-after series. Designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, the Taika (Magic) pattern tells the story of an enchanted forest full of fanciful creatures. An ornate owl takes center stage against the elegant red porcelain of this dishwasher, freezer, microwave and oven-safe plate. Mix and match this piece with iittala Teema; the range of colors in the design leaves plenty of room to play with your place setting. Whatever combinations you create, the iittala Taika Red Dinner Plate will garner admiration at the table.

Vivid color, incredible detail! Quality and magic in one. Stunning!
January 31, 2022
I searched through thousands of dish patterns before I saw these by Iittalla Taiko, vivid, enchantingly detailed dishes. I was stunned, and I never use that word. In person, these dishes are even more beautiful. The quality is very good. I like the size and the ease of cleaning them, also the versatility of mixing and matching the pieces. I would like to meet the designer and see more of his work. Finally, an artist who is not afraid of using color in this mundane, minimalist, "gray-everything", mid-century-boring era! btw I lived thru the 'mid-century' era: the design was boring then and it is boring now.
  • Wow! Where to start! Vivid, glossy color. Enchanting, magical design, like walking through a Disney animated classic movie or backstage at the opera. Ideal size, mix and match pieces. Functional, sturdy, easy to clean.

Not just for Christmas!

The festive red color is perfect for Christmas dinner, but this happy color and pattern should not stay in the cupboard waiting for holiday season—I use these mixed together with blue Taika pieces for a vibrant and beautiful table year round.

Love these dishes!
April 6, 2021
When I first saw these dishes, I couldn’t stop smiling. Hapaneimi has created whimsy and artistry with his art, which makes me enjoy the dishes everyday when I take them out of the cupboard. I certainly had no idea that after a few cups and dessert plates as a special treat for myself, that I would end up buying more and more until I have enough for an entire set of dishes! Buying dishes at the age of 74 may not be the most practical expenditure I have ever made. But even my husband’s face lights up with a grin when he sees how much I enjoy the dishes. I now have the dishes in red, blue, and white.
I know that were my grandmother and father still alive, they, too, would pleasure in the forest creatures and the colors while drinking hot, steaming coffee and sliced nisua (pulla).
  • Additionally, I would add that the dishes are always professionally wrapped in bubblewrap and secured carefully in a strong box so that the dishes arrive safely with no damage!

Iittala's Taika red dinner plates (10.5") is as cheerfully festive as one would hope. The perfect Christmas dinner plates for our table setting. Iittala's full Taika collection is whimsical and so beautifully done. I also have this plate in the 11 inch blue version. Like a colorful folk-story in fine porcelain. FinnStyle's service was remarkable from start-to-finish with safe, secure and fast shipping in plenty of time for Christmas.

March 13, 2016
Now I have red, white, and blue in most of the individual items (mug, bowl, plate, etc). Still haven't bought a big server.
  • Fun to collect one or two pieces at a time.

Delightful design, solid plates
February 16, 2016
Very pretty plates, colors were just as vibrant as expected when they arrived. Plates are solid and seem like they will indeed survive many years in regular rotation (yes, including trips through the dishwasher). Shipping from FinnStyle was reasonable, timely, and plates were very well packaged to avoid damage.
  • solid plates, vibrant colors, decent shipping

iittala Taika Red Dinner Plate
December 11, 2015
When I first saw the photo of this plate, I was taken by the beautiful vivid colors and the striking owl on the plate. Although I stopped cooking years ago, I decided that the dishes would be wonderful to have for my casual style of entertaining. I intend to use them all year round, although I know they are considered a seasonal product.
  • Beautiful high quality plates.

love the new size
December 12, 2014
I love the Taika and this new size is great - the large dinner plate is at times a bit too large. Plus I love Taika owls so it is wonderful to have another piece with the owl on it.

So happy these are finally being offered
December 2, 2014
We first purchased iittala Taika products a few years ago and were dismayed that not all pieces came in red. Checked recently since I remembered that red is a "seasonal" color and Christmas is coming, and woohoo! Red dinner plates! They are a different size than the other plates we had, but we like this size (a bit smaller) better, so we decided to get the other colors in this size.

Design is charming and colors are vibrant. These are beautiful, sturdy plates. Very happy with them.
