Can you recommend a beautiful stainless steel flatware set for Shabbos?

It's a matter of taste. What Tirtzah loves, Milka thinks is ugly, and what makes Chogla puke makes Noa beam with appreciation. Go to a store and look at what they have, then choose what appeals to you. Do you go for sleek and smooth or ornate? Traditional or avant-garde? Not to mention that you didn't speak of price ranges. Even stainless can be pricey, and recommending Liberty Tabletop Kensington (service for 12 can cost over $1000) won't help if your budget runs to Target.

Oh, and mentioning just a brand or pattern is also useless, as every brand carries multiple patterns and different brands may have patterns with the same name. You have to specify Liberty Tabletop (manufacturer) Kensington (pattern) or International Silver (manufacturer) Kensington(pattern). The two aren't remotely similar.

If you want good quality, make sure it's 18/10 steel.

IMHO, seems more every day. Pretty though. Depending on your style, it could be for Shabbos.

Oneida Michelangelo and Louisiana are noth gorgeous if you like ornate. Keep in mind that these are old but still popular patterns, so the flatware pieces are not huge.

OP, I was also unsure what style to buy. I'm not sure where you're located, but I recently bought a set of silverware from Wilhelm's in Boro Park. The lady was very helpful and helped me choose silverware, dishes, and placemats for weekday. And they toivel everything for you. I wasn't focusing on Shabbos silverware, so I can't say for sure if they have it, but you could call and find out.

If you post a picture of your Shabbos dishes, maybe we can try to recommend something.

Litvish, yeshivish here too and I love this set for Shabbos. But in general I have very modern taste, this is not traditional in style

I like it.

But apart from people who have silver, so people really use differnt flatware on Shabbat?

FYI, Rue la la has some Goddinger items, including flatware and some judaica, such as washing cups and seder plates.

I do use separate flatware for Shabbos, not silver.

It will look beautiful once it’s on a set Shabbos table, but you’ll have many people using it for weekday as well... it’s that kind of set

Interesting. I honestly had no idea. I'm not organized enough to have Shabbat flatware, TBH. I do have silver (plate) that belonged to DH's mother, but I only use it for guests.

Yup. I actually have Shabbos flatware and dinnerware not silver. It's a little more elaborate, elegant... these are the ones I have. A bit old fashioned by now. 😃
