Live Elegantly Every Day

Alaina Young and her mom Nancy Young Mosny founded Q Squared in 2011 with the mission to bring the experience of fine dining to every home. They turned to melamine, a durable, versatile material, to create beautiful and resilient pieces. Using only 100% high-quality melamine, they developed dinnerware and serveware that looked and felt like porcelain and ceramic, but were also durable and practical for everyday use.

Q Squared is now considered "the pioneer of superior quality melamine” and has set the industry standard for safety, quality and design. Known for its signature collection of textured whiteware, Q Squared also offers an ever-growing collection of nautical, rustic, modern and floral designs on a range of tableware pieces, from melamine plates and bowls, to platters and trays. All Q Squared products are dishwasher-safe, scratch-resistant, virtually unbreakable, and easy to use, making them the best dinnerware choice for both indoor and outdoor dining and entertaining.

Q Squared's award-winning tableware has been featured in national publications and television programs, including The ViewHouse Beautiful, HGTV Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Coastal Living, Hamptons Magazine and Good Morning Texas. Consistently recognized as the best melamine in the market, Q Squared has set the standard for designer melamine for many years to come.

Why the name Q Squared?

The "Q" is for Queen and "Squared" is for our two founders. We know it sounds a bit nerdy (there is a Star Trek book called Q Squared after all), but we like that it's a bit different, quirky and hopefully memorable.
