Here are some Greek plates you won't be smashing in a hurry. Napoleon Perdis is bringing his favourite Grecian dinnerware to our shores via his Life.Style, the boutique he opened in Woollahra post office in Sydney in 2012. "Ionia was one of the first brands we knew we wanted to bring to Australia and share with our customers," the make-up mogul says. "It's one of the oldest and most established Greek dinnerware brands. They do fine porcelain, everyday crockery, glassware and flatware, and a range of designs that are minimal or classic, and designs that are more fashion-forward." What's more, Ionia won't break the bank, with pieces starting at $25. "It's incredible in quality, with great touches of detail and it's really affordable," he says.
