Magenta’s stable of artists make dinnerware, appetizer and dessert serving products, kitchen tools, baby products and pet and garden accessories in ceramic, porcelain and other mixed materials. Founded in 2002, this Berkeley, California–based company takes its name from the color that's most difficult to achieve in firing ceramics—and the nomenclature befits Magenta's clever designs for the home. From the purely decorative to the practical, each ceramic item has a whimsical flourish or vintage inspiration (like an antique tile or textile pattern) that sets it apart.
From elegant glassware to stylish serving pieces, these luxe designs are perfectly cut out for a wine-and-cheese party, whether you host a small gathering with friends or a big soiree with a cast of dozens. Now all you have to do is decide who's worthy of an invite.
It's not just the season of giving, it's the season of giving great parties. So we gathered our stylish staff—and their well-dressed guests—to show you how to pull off the ultimate holiday soiree. Watch the video, and then shop your essential party pieces here.
Set the table for winter with these essentials — their warm, sophisticated style will make you forget how chilly it is outside.
