Modern Thanksgiving Essentials

Essentials for Your Modern Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is a great time to begin new traditions. Keep the best elements of the season alive — togetherness, family, friends — but with your own modern spin. The holidays are a perfect time to revamp your table, and we’ve selected items that embody the idea of modern + timeless — beautifully made and designed products you can have confidence in.

Modular White Vases for the Holidays

The Modular White Vase gives your table the beauty of a floral arrangement without overwhelming it. Reflective clear and white glass in a modern rectangular form that’s substantial enough to handle a knock from a passing plate, but not in danger of leaving no room for entrées.

You have to feel it to believe it. Medaillon dinnerware is gleaming, German-crafted porcelain that is not only dishwasher and microwave safe (for easy cleanup and reheating of leftovers), but also scratch and wear-resistant.

A tablecloth not only protects your table from scratches and stains, but also lends elegance to your presentation and can tie it all together. The Garland Wine Tablecloth is made from Portuguese cotton sateen and features a striking digitally printed take on a floral pattern, designed by Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn. Stain-resistant and machine washable, it’s a beautiful and practical addition to your holiday table.

We’ve paired these elements with a Burgundy Linen Napkin (have some fun with textiles via the contrasting cotton sateen of the tablecloth and strong linen weave of the napkins), a modern Chrome Silver Napkin Ring, and Eve Chrome Flatware, for the perfect combination of traditional and modern.

Take the opportunity this year to create your own traditions. Whether it’s finding a table setting to start creating memories with, or even a poem you like to read ever year — traditions are one of the things we value most. It’s never too late to start one that will be valued for years to come.
