With the launch of the Dwell Store and Thanksgiving right around the corner the timing couldn't be more perfect. Here, we've pulled together a collection of table top pieces we think will really elevate your holiday table this year. Happy shopping!
Kastehelmi Large Plate
Kastehelmi Large Plate Professor Oiva Toikka's Kastehelmi, Finnish for "dewdrop," evolved from a technical challenge when Toikka started using glass droplets to cover joint marks left on the surface of pressed glass pieces. The result was a popular range of glassware decorated with beads of glass that glisten like dewdrops in the morning sun.

Russel Wright Residential Collection - Salad Plate
Russel Wright Residential Collection - Salad Plate Mid-century industrial designer Russel Wright believed that the table was the center of the home. First designed over 60 years ago, the Russel Wright Residential Collection is available once again, crafted from durable, shatterproof melamine. Winner of the Good Design Award from the Museum of Modern Art (1953, 1954), the Residential Collection remains an icon of the 20th century––and now 21st century––home.

Nuovo Milano Flatware Only after years of experimentation and research on the thickness of the body of each piece in the set did the Nuovo Milano Flatware Place Setting go into production. Today, Ettore Sottsass’s design is considered a classic.

Kastehelmi Bowl - Apple Green
Kastehelmi Bowl - Apple Green Kaj Franck's Kartio glassware sheds all things unnecessary and superfluous. The result is a timeless aesthetic that stuns with pure geometric shapes embellished only by gentle colors— as Franck put it, "the only decoration needed." Each perfectly balanced piece is simple, yet durable enough for everyday use, infused with the feeling that it could not have been designed any other way.

Essence Red Wine Glass
Essence Red Wine Glass The Essence family of glassware was designed by Zurich-based designer Alfredo Häberli for Iittala. With personal experience in the restaurant industry guiding the designer’s decisions, a perfect blend of form and function emerged. Each glass is formed to suit the scientific needs of the liquid it contains, but with the utmost attention to aesthetics. Notes the designer, “The idea for the glass range was to create a balance between tradition and modernity, between celebration and daily use, a balance with one and different uses.”

Iittala Decanter
Iittala Decanter The perfectly formed, mouth-blown shape of Citterio and Nguyen's Decanter was thoughtfully designed to enhance the qualities of its contents. The neck opens slightly, allowing wine to breathe and releasing the flavors and bouquet that have been locked inside it. The clean, clear design lets in light to ignite the brilliant color of wine. While it fits naturally with virtually any glassware, it's at its best when matched with Iittala's range of wine glasses.
