Maximalist dinnerware to feed my eyeballs

Socially isolated minimalist seeks daydream fodder. Can you please provide links to the most gorgeous, over-the-top dinnerware sets/tablescapes online? TIA

I am not sure this is what you are looking for, but as sometime who owns all white corelle plates, I have spent time lately looking at various gorgeous patterns.

And not dinnerware, but I spend a lot of time looking at these tea cups and not buying them because I don't drink tea and if I did drink tea, it would not be in such tiny quantities.

Maybe over the top only in color, but Fiestaware has an amusing widget that lets you play with color schemes.

Are you on Pinterest? That's where I find great ones. (1, 2, 3, 4 for a start)

Luke Edward Hall's collection for Ginori and other various ceramics, especially when placed near his boyfriend in a green velvet suit.

The ones in the link may be more decorative pieces than stuff you'd eat from, but your eyes deserve some Iznik designs.

(your eyes may need a wee lie down after those: you asked for maximalist, tho.)

As someone who grew up in the very beige 70's, I'm a fan of Royal Albert.

Sometimes I just like to go down the rabbit hole at the website for Table Art, a Los Angeles shop.

I grew up around this pattern. It's both maximalist and about as traditional as you can get. Still kinda love it

Bopla! I have a just a few pieces amidst my mismatched dinnerware, and they are a small but reliable joy.

I know it's only mugs and I know it's a meme but c'mon, someone has to say Calamityware.
