Used in fine hotels and resorts worldwide, Schott Zwiesel’s glassware is as durable as it is dashing: beneath the clean, sculptural lines, each piece possesses strength and solidity of construction. Translation? You don’t have to baby this glassware, and it’ll stand up to hundreds of stints in the dishwasher. And remember: Wine glasses, champagne flutes, decanters, and all-purpose goblets are the markings of a well-stocked bar.
When your craft dates back to the Middle Ages, it’s hard to escape the weight of history. But that hasn’t stopped Luigi Bormioli from innovating the art of glassmaking. Since setting up shop in 1946 in Parma, Italy, this family-owned company has made products that respect the past yet also focus on the needs of users today, particularly in regard to the strength, clarity, and affordability of the glass. Bormioli’s lead-free wine glasses, carafes, tumblers, and more — with design flourishes inspired by Renaissance painters — are always simple and elegant.
Rich texture, subtly rustic style, and hues of the earth and sea define these elegant table linens and more. They’ll add a languid, Tuscan flair to your table, and will inspire a little dolce vita.
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.
