In connection to post-war British styles of sculpture, this female figure pays homage to organic and natural elements reminiscent of Toltec-Mayan sculptural pieces. A white marble base elevates the gold leaf bonded piece and pairs form and texture with luxury design. The bronze finished iron version of Villa & House’s sculpture features an eye-catching black marble base.

Even prep work can benefit from a facelift of sorts; this board with a line of classic cars and their appreciators on the beach in Monte Carlo would make for an unforgettable gift.
Every chef and kitchen aficionado knows that presentation is how you feed someone's eyes; often the look of a dish can change the experience had by those eating whatever is served up. To help your cooking fanatic friends, look to our Guzzini pieces for the serving elegance they need to elevate any dish. Guzzini small, medium, and large bowls come in a beautiful white or a captivating gray. The Grace Serve-ware Collection is crafted in Italy and uses Murano glass as inspiration for these chic acrylic designs.

The entertainer in your life deserves something breathtaking to turn any dull night into an event. A breathtaking platter can steal the show just as much as the dish sitting atop it. Pampa Bay’s beaded serving pieces take the classic serving tray and line each style with silver titanium finished beads. We love the look of the Beaded Deep Oval serving piece because it can turn any side dish into a main course for your eyes.
