Get The Look

Our fresh take on traditional pieces will have you giving thanks.

Love the look of the traditional transferware shown in “Gather” (see page TK)? Try these easy, elegant pieces — mixed-and-matched with juicy colors and modern lines for a fresh, updated look.

The tradition of setting a Thanksgiving table with fine English transferware depicting the holiday bird or other pastoral scenes is almost as old as Abraham Lincoln's proclamation of an official Thanksgiving Day — established in 1863. In the aesthetic tradition of these transfer-printed pieces, Juliska's Country Estate Serving Platter recalls the charm of English country life in a decal hand-painted by designer Deborah Sears and applied to hardy stoneware. Perfect for your Thanksgiving bird. (Looking for early Christmas inspo? Check out Juliska’s Country Estate Winter Frolic collection.) Zieben-Mare, Franklin.

Ginori 1735 has been crafting ceramics for three centuries — the Italian maker’s colorful Oriente Italiano Collection offers a vibrant take on traditional printed ceramics.

The peachy tone of Anthropologie’s Mimi Thorisson Italian Hours Wine Glasses — crafted of mouth-blown soda glass with a vintage-inspired pedestal stem — add a kiss of the harvest season to the holiday table.

Elegant yet laidback: The borders of Juliska’s Forest Walk Collection are festooned with rustic organic elements — twigs and acorns, feathers and berries. Here, the Party Plate Set is paired with Juliska’s classic Berry & Thread pattern atop a lush green macrame placemat with a scalloped rim.
