Upgrade Your Tablescape For Holidays At Home
Cheers To That
Crystal stemware and bar accessories from French designers Baccarat and Saint Louis are best-sellers on TRR. Maison Balzac carafe and glass sets are the most purchased drinkware item, which is not surprising given the versatility of the pieces and their accessible price point. If you’re looking to sell and swap in something new to sip from, it’s a great time — the average resale value for drinkware items on TRR is up 43% this year.
The Standout Piece: This Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. ceramic champagne bucket features Peretti’s iconic free-form style, and keeps your bottle chilled throughout the night’s festivities.
Hannah’s Holiday Tip: Instead of the traditional flutes to serve your champagne this year, try coupes like this Venini pair — the saucer shape is a fresh alternative for your tablescape, and is also easier to drink from than the narrow flute.
As we’ve spent the better part of 2020 social distancing, demand for games & activities has increased 38%. Diversions like games and puzzles from French luxury icons Chanel and Hermès are top performers when it comes to value, while the streetwear-savvy Supreme label is a best-seller.
The Standout Piece: My favorite pieces are often those one-of-a-kind items selected by our curators like this Onyx Chess Set. Perhaps it’s the twinge of nostalgia that I get, remembering being a kid on a rainy day at school during a recess break, and reaching for the well-worn class chess set. It’s that timeless game that will help the time pass when a snowstorm has knocked out your power, and is a refreshing stimulus for your brain when you need a break from your phone screen.
Hannah’s Holiday Tip: Keep puzzles, games and cards out of your hallway closet and incorporate them into your living space this holiday season. Pieces like this Jonathan Adler marble tic-tac-toe set and Louis Vuitton playing cards are small and can be easily styled on an accent table or your coffee table. Larger games like this Hermès Scrabble set can be enjoyed at the dining table to accommodate more players.
