This precisely-balanced, dishwasher-safe flatware by designer José Joaquim Ribeiro is handcrafted to order in the Sao Martinho de Sande factory his family has overseen in this Portugal village for 3 generations. Available brushed and polished, stainless and gold colored—while quantities last.

Celebrated British designer Lee Broom's candle holder furthers a monolithic illusion of a cylindrical stem balancing on a central sphere. Solid optical crystal creates intriguing visual effects from various angles. Also available in white and black marble.

With its wide mouth and beefy handle, Tub Jug can serve as a wine carafe, watering can or even ad-hoc vase. Designed by French studio BL119 for Muuto, this stout jug also makes a for a welcomed gift.

Japanese designer Nendo brings his humorous but useful take to these hand-blown glass shakers for Valerie Objects: pour spice onto ribbed curve of the hand-blown glass base, grind it with the bottle base and freshly crushed seasoning is ready for sprinkling.

A pairing worth dining on from Menu: the Snaregade table (available in round, oval and rectangle) and the Afteroom Chairs (also available in different back widths). Both collections are studies in essentials, their graphic frameworks providing as much a functional purpose in comfort and heft as strikingly timeless forms. Afteroom is also the name of the Copenhagen design studio of Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei; Snaregade is the name of the street in that Danish capital of Menu creative directors Norm Architects. Both can be seen now at the A+R showroom in downtown Los Angeles, and some stock is available to have both by the holidays.
