First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala
Born in Finland in the early 1900’s, designer Kaj Franck preferred deconstructed design and valued usability as it directly related to beauty. In removing excessive elements, his simplistic designs are comfortable and easily palatable for home use. Franck’s hauntingly beautiful Kartio Glass... More Kaj Franck
Iâ€™m in love. Teema dinnerware are great. Just the right color white and perfectly weighted. Just the right size too. Love that there are ridges for scooping food. I have purchased C/B dinnerware but these are much better quality. Donâ€™t hesitate to purchase!

The epitome of understated elegance. As relevant today as it will be in 50 years.
It is more a "dish" than a plate.

Expanding my Teema set
March 30, 2021
Iâ€™ve been using Teema for the past couple years and wanted to add some extras to expand the set.
Classic design with an elegant midcentury modern look and excellent durability. The lip on the edge of the dinner plate is great to avoid spills

Great size, well made

These Teema dinner plates in off-white are really great! I like the size (not gigantic, but big enough for a full meal), and the sloped edges make them very convenient. Great quality, too.

Classic Everyday Dinnerware
April 11, 2018
Started to purchase these classic iittala Teema dinnerware pieces and have added to the set when on sale. They are beautiful and the turquoise color looks great in my Florida kitchen. Very satisfied with the quality and the style.
Finnstyle service couldn't have been better
December 27, 2017
1) FinnStyle response and mailing could not have been faster. Packaging was amazing. 2) Teema Black Dinner Plates were well worth the price. However, they are about 1/8 inch smaller in diameter than the original plates we purchased many, many years ago. But the dimensions on the web site are accurate so it is my fault I didn't check our old plates. Also, the slope of the rim is somewhat different But as a matter of fact, I don't think these minor differences will be notices when ix them on the dining table. My wife was thrilled with them when she opened her package.

Love these dishes. I've been working for a long time to build up a complete set. Have ordered almost all of them from Finn Style, which has great prices and fast shipping. I've never been disappointed with this company and I've placed many, many orders with them over the years.

I have long admired these plates. They are a joy to use: good size, nice lip which gives a distinctive shape, and vibrant color. I am sad that it appears to be discontinued.

In 1973 I registered for wedding gifts at Lord and Taylor in Dallas, Texas. My soon-to-be, mother-in-law thought my choices were odd. She thought fancy flowery dishes and sterling flatware were what I should chose. My choices were Arabia "Kilta" (now Ittala "Teema") dishes and Dansk "Thistle" stainless. The marriage didn't last but the plates and flatware are still beautiful timeless design. Every couple of years I add a few dishes to replace a few broken pieces. Thanks FinnStyle for carrying on the beautiful simple design of Kaj Franck (ca.1948)
A classic, simple design reminiscent in some ways of English ironstone. It stacks and stores very compactly. The upturned rims of the plates keeps sauces and gravy on the plate instead of the table.

Why did I wait so long
December 10, 2014
I've bought dinnerware multiple times in my life. I've always had an eye on these but went with something less expensive in the past. The less expensive alternatives, added up, would have paid for these a few times over. I saved nothing. I'll have these for life and they're worth every penny. They've been in production for so long that I'm not worried about not being able to replace a plate or two that might break over the years.
Classic and well made

Simple, yet beautiful. You never get bored with this design. It compliments all kinds of dish so well!!!

We adore these plates. They are attractive and practical. My husband and I like the lips or rims on these plates. Food looks so very attractive on these most versatile plates. Also they beautifully match the blues in our Arabia dishes. The packing from Finn Style was so safe. We live in New England and these plates arrived safely from Minnesota.
Versatility, micriwave safe, simply lovely

I recently decided to start collecting Iitalla dishes for everyday use now that my children have grown up and "left the nest". In Finland last summer I bought a seasonal Iitalla series that included bowls, mugs and small plates. These dark blue plates match perfectly and together with the pasta bowls I now have a lovely 4 place settings. I plan to purchase additional pieces in the future
Pieces sold separately
Coordinates with patterned dishes
Expensive if not on sale

I love the dinnerware..in fact, just completed my basic set and was all set to give you a rave review until I realized all of these products were going on sale and you could have let me know that - I have loved your store and always enjoyed letting people know about it...bummer that you don't think to let your customers know when they order something, it might be coming up for sale.
I will continue to build on this set...will watch for your sales, but can always rely on Macy's.

The entire Teema line is very functional. It can be dressed up or down which makes it a great set.
Love the variety of dishes that it offers - plates, pasta bowls, cereal bowls, etc
They discontinue colors and then you can't easily find a replacement one if it breaks. I still miss the yellow!

Creamy white, minimal design.

It took me a while to appreciate Teema but now that I have some I really like it. These dinner plates will blend well with dinnerware I already own.
Love the creamy white color and the rim.

I bought grey and celadon green. Unfortunately they arrived chipped. I contacted FinnStyle immediately. I could not be more impressed with how quickly and professionally they handled the matter. They replied within 30 minutes and one hour later, I got a notification email that replacement plates have been shipped. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and experience with FinnStyle.

Just remodeled my kitchen with low open shelves. Needed to replace some mismatched dinner ware with a clean and simple look. These plate were just the ticket. Not stark white and the smoothness on the hand is buttery and beautiful. Perfect choice for me.

December 21, 2012
Just a great simple dish. Nice lines. Almost a Tiffany box blue. Wonderful with the Korento pieces and it was packed very carefully. The plates have a plastic liner on the bottom in shipping to prevent the unglazed bottom edge from scratching other plates in shipment. Nice packing detail !
The shape. With the small lip it holds in sauces n liquids

I have used these dishes for years with my family and they are classics!
Are the plates compatible with Miele dishwasher racks? How should they be placed? My husband claims that they will not fit, although we love them!
Teema dinnerware is designed to be able to fit into standard dishwashers. If needed, you can order a few pieces to test and return them using our return policy instructions, if they do not fit your needs:
Is there a warranty on the iittala teema dinnerware & platters?
Also, are there any instructions for oven safe usage?
I have purchased these items but they did not come with any information.
Teema plates are Freezer, microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. There is no warranty for the plates, however we (and iittala) stand firmly behind the quality of our products if there are any issues with normal every-day use.
