Entertaining Classics, ReimaginedAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Everyone loves the classics, and a new crop of entertaining accessories takes a fresh look at time-honored favorites.
Lina Nordqvist’s stark white Family Chairs for Design House Stockholm are a send-up of traditional comb-back Windsor chairs. Sold in mismatched sets of two, they are meant to be mixed up at the dining table; $650 for two.
The Eastward dining chair from Thos. Moser is a more literal interpretation of the 1740s seat; $1,075.
Andromeda has taken the glass chandelier to new heights. The 530-pound Hydroargentum fixture measures roughly 10-feet high and 10-feet wide;price upon request.
The Murano glass chandelier (31-inches high and 27-inches wide) is a reproduction of a 17th-century Venetian-style, blown-glass piece; $2,800.
Wunderkammer from Sieger by Fürstenburg is inspired primarily by Delft dinnerware and has touches of Victorian cabinets of curiosities and Japanese motifs; from $72.
Royal Copenhagen’s Blue Fluted Half Lace pattern hasn’t changed since it was introduced in 1775—it still takes 1,197 brushstrokes to make one plate; from $130.
The English Surrey Cottage carpet from Decorative Carpets magnifies patterns in Arts and Crafts rugs and their Persian pre-decessors; custom sizes.
Medallion Rug Gallery offers traditionally patterned 19th-century antiques such as the floral Persian Tabriz; price upon request.
