Budding genius: Georg Jensen
Georg Jensen once again returns to its voluminous archives to launch a “new” collection of ultraluxe flatware. Originally designed in 1919, the sterling silver Blossom set has an 18kt gold-dipped flower bud at each piece’s base, a distinctly art nouveau flourish.

Cloth of heaven: Julia B
Julia Berger, aka Julia B, is a preeminent source for couture linens of all stripes. In time for the new season, she has created a line of whimsical, vintage-inspired table linens, Quattro Mani, meant to mix and match with china made in collaboration
with Laboratorio Paravicini. The Firenze design (pictured) is inspired by the colours of its namesake city.

On a plate: Peter Valcarcel
Designer and artist Peter Valcarcel repurposes antique German porcelain for his collection of plates, which features amorphous, languid shapes in gold and royal blue. Each one-of-a-kind, hand painted piece “tells a story of simplicity and purity only found in nature,” he says.
Raise a glass: Moleria Locchi
Moleria Locchi has been carving crystal in Oltrarno, Florence, since the 19th century. This set of three Ejermann glasses has a finely wrought and whimsically rendered underwater scene.
Lighting the way: Josef Frank
Designed in a spirit of optimism and peace, Josef Frank created the Knot of Friendship candelabrum in 1938, just before the onset of World War II. The interconnected, lyrical design in warm brass remains an iconic design.
