Apartment Therapy left out my link, so I thought I should post it- CatMerrick.com. In regard to Akay's comment, the plates are coated with a dinner-safe glaze after sandblasting, and then refired, so they are completely functional. Sorry if that wasn't clear, and thanks for taking a look!

Natasha, my mom had those chairs- at first I thought that they were Mies Van der Rohe because they were cantilevered, and he also made cane chairs, but after doing some research I found out that they were called the "Cesca" chairs, made by Marcel Breuer for Knoll. The table I'm not sure about...
