As we did not do Thanksgiving at home, I am looking forward to entertaining friends at Church Street during the coming weeks. Canvas has been one of my favorite resources for tableware and home accessories since I saw their booth at the New York gift show a year ago, and here are a few things available in their online shop that I currently have my eye on for the season ahead.
The matte-glazed porcelain Gold Pebble Dishes, elegant small vessels for pre-dinner nibbles.
Hand-hewn Holey Boards, cutting boards good-looking enough to double as cheese plates or serving pieces.
Made in Lithuania where traditional flax growing and linen production methods are thriving, Canvas's 100% linen Napkins and Placemats are available in neutrals and jewel tones - I would mix them.
Shimmering Syrian Glass Ornaments are mouth blown using recycled glass and look just as beautiful on the tree as they do grouped in a centerpiece.
The chic Polished Aluminum Tray organizes bar-tending supplies in style whether one is shaking or stirring.
A versatile shape, the Soto Straight Stemmed Goblet can be used to serve wine, beer or the holiday punch I like to make.
Hand-carved, soft black Soapstone Bowls. Included here because this is what I want for Christmas in case anyone bumps in Mr. H and can casually mention it.
The hand dyed linen Dog Bed with Running Stitch, a dog bed I wouldn't feel like I had to stash in the garage when we have guests.
