Throwing a dinner party? Make sure your dining table is as elegantly dressed as you are with these special pieces.
Cannes Precieux Collection
Jean Puiforcat created the pretty Cannes pattern in 1928 to grace the tables at
his own wedding. Inspired by the facade of the Côte d’Azur’s Hôtel Martinez, Puiforcat combined minimalism and opulence in his timeless design. Now, 90 years later, the silverware pattern has been revitalized with handles set with onyx, jasper, jade or lapis lazuli, crafted in the same fashion as haute couture jewelry.

L’Objet’s Aegean dinnerware collection is inspired by the Greco-Roman treasures of the ancient world. The name is derived from the Greek word aiges, meaning ‘waves’. Made from Limoges porcelain with 24K gold, the intricately detailed pieces are decidedly mermaid-esque. When stacked on top of each other, the pieces make waves all their own.

Paula 7000 Drink Set
This exquisite glassware line from the historic Bohemian house Moser features an Art Nouveau design from 1902 with a golden etching of two entwined stems with thorns and leaves. The collection is handblown from ecologically friendly lead-free crystal, and each item is hand-cut and polished to a high gloss, with a hand-gilded 24K rim.
