Relax, it only looks expensive

Found on ancient mosaics, Hollywood Regency rugs and a host of Versace housewares, the Greek key design signifies classic deep-pockets taste. Yet this made-in-China porcelain set, available in black or beige with gold details, costs a mere $16.96 for each five-piece setting. Do the math: Bargain dishes plus confident presentation equal a luxe look for less. You'll find the pieces, along with coordinating goblets, at Bargain Fair, the discount restaurant and catering supplier at 7901 Beverly Blvd., on the corner of Fairfax Avenue, in Los Angeles; (323) 655-2227.
