Founded by mother-daughter team Nancy and Alaina, Q Squared® was created as an alternative to overpriced and under-designed dinnerware. With Q Squared, Nancy and Alaina saw an opportunity to elevate affordable dinnerware design to include beautiful and ornate patterns typically only seen on fine or antique china and porcelain.
Nancy, a former Glamour editor and home decor boutique owner, has a history of home style curation; Alaina, an innate color and style aficionado, has a background in art history. With their very distinct, but complementary home design styles, the duo creates timeless dinnerware pieces that appeal to every generation. Q Squared plates, platters, bowls, and serveware look elegant and stylish in any home.
After a small international test run, Q Squared dinnerware officially debuted stateside in 2011. Since launching domestically, Q Squared has blossomed beyond the dining room to infuse beauty into every room of the home.
Q Squared is committed to shaking up the routine and chasing the unexpected, especially through design. Q Squared encourages its customers to be confident in their self-expression, embrace their curiosity, and always strive to learn/try/create something new. Q Squared promises to be the friend to help guide the way.
Why the name Q Squared?
Nancy and Alaina are Q Squared's two "Queens," and they encourage everyone to follow their example by ruling his or her home domain.
