Forward-thinking Design

At Belle & June, we are proud to offer the Arte Italica collection of dinnerware, tableware, and accessories, crafted by hand from ceramics, bronze, pewter, and glass. Each piece, its own work of art with many of the most popular and elegant lines, including the Tuscan, Bella Bianca, and Merletto collections.

Browse the Belle & June catalog for the latest and most sought-after pieces in the Arte Italica collection. What makes these items so special is the ability to mix and match pieces from different collections. This forward-thinking approach to design makes Arte Italica one of our favorite brands.

Combining white ceramics and pewter allows for the consumer to bring collections together as he or she sees fit.

We offer the clean look of ceramic in the Bella Bianca collection and vintage pewter pitchers, bowls, and serving utensils that bear the Arte Italica brand, both complementing the classic aesthetic of the Tuscan collection beautifully. We also feature the Taverna line of glassware which adds a touch of the modern to your dinner table.

All of these collections can be featured separately in your home or combine them together as you cherry-pick your preferences from each collection to combine the most functional and fascinating array of dinnerware and serveware options.
