Rehabilitated Dishware, Made in Brooklyn

Goodlifer: Rehabilitated Dishware, Made in Brooklyn

Out of her studio in Brooklyn, designer Sarah Cihat lovingly crafts the pieces that make up her Rehabilitated Dishware collection, a refreshing comment on our deeply rooted throw-away culture. The project started as part her thesis while at Parson’s School of Design and has since been widely published and exhibited.


Cihat scours second hand stores and and department store reject piles to find dishware that is then reglazed and refired. Designs are themed, so anyone with a creative sense can create their own set of dishes. You can go somewhat logical, like Dandy-Pinup-Rockstar or Moose-Horse-Antelope, or a bit more unexpected, along the lines of Daggered Heart-Roses-Abraham Lincoln or Flamingo-Moonman-Mixtape. Either way, you’ll have something to talk about with dinner guests, there’s nothing like breaking up that uncomfortable silence with a “So, how’s that pinup girl working for your potatoes?”



Get some on the site or find a store nearby. Custom orders can be made, in case you just must have, say, Moby Dick, a sparrow, or a portrait of yourself on your dishware.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
