01. Janaki Larsen Ceramics
Vancouver, Canada-based ceramicist Janaki Larsen’s ethereal pockmarked dishes have recently been gaining interest from stylists, restaurants, publications and fans across the globe. It probably doesn’t hurt that her pieces were featured in Gwyneth Paltrow’s 2013 cookbook, It’s All Good. The talented artist’s imperfect, textured designs lend themselves to rustic seasonal spreads.
02. David Mellor Cutlery
There’s a reason David Mellor is often called the “cutlery king.” The late British industrial designer was trained as a silversmith and became fascinated with the design possibilities of stainless steel. While all of his flatware offers modernity without harshness, his Minimal set (shown above) is particularly elegant and guaranteed to elicit delighted praise from even the most design-conscious guest.
03. Jasper Morrison Glassware
Few people notice drinking glasses, unless Jasper Morrison is designing them. The Royal College of Art graduate — known for conceiving Germany’s award-winning Hannover Tram — manages to strike a signature balance of finesse and impact, whether he’s designing public transportation systems, furniture or glassware.
04. Marina Dragomirova Mixers
Double down on your stemware with Marina Dragomirova’s customizable mixers. Using carefully sourced material from second-hand stores and thrift shops, the London-based product designer hand cuts each piece before outfitting them with magnetic joints, making the goblets and stems infinitely interchangeable.
