Kat Nouri believes that what you eat on is as important as what you eat. That's why the mother of three founded Modern-twist, a California-based company that brings art to the table, collaborating with independent artists and designers on silicone home accessories. Free of BPA, latex, and chemicals, the eco-conscious brand leaves a minimal footprint with its elegant and playful mealtime basics.
Set a vibrant table this summer—whether you’re throwing a party or just having a casual dinner at home—with these flatware, dishware, and accessory options. Sabre’s cutlery, with bright-hued, bold-patterned handles, is a great start; and Bodum’s glass cups and mugs, with colorful silicone sleeves, are a fun twist on everyday essentials. Tie the look together by setting a vase on one of Modern-Twist’s “Dolleez” Loops, which are bold, modern renditions of doilies.
If you love to entertain, you owe it to yourself (and to your guests) to do it with beautiful, functional objects, whether it’s a well-shaped tumbler or a modern hors d’oeuvres set. Then, after dinner, why not extend the festive mood by topping off some elegant cordial glasses? Or, for a modern twist on high tea, try pairing the porcelain tea tray from the MoMA Design Store with tablecloths by Beauville Designs.
