How L’Objet Founder Elad Yifrach Plans for a Stunning Spring Dinner Party

Mixing midcentury finds with pieces from his own creative collection, the celebrated designer crafts a colorful and convivial tablescape

As the founder of L’Objet, Elad Yifrach conceives fantastical creations for the table and home. Through his inventive lens, porcelain plates become luminous works of art with all-over patterns of malachite, leopard, or lapis, each with 24K-gold accents. Regal scepters transform the handles of cocktail forks and dessert spoons; ornamental pagodas are reimagined as salt and pepper shakers; and galloping horses stretch around gilded napkin rings.

Collaborations with other boundary-pushing designers such as the Haas Brothers and Kelly Behun have only furthered the collection’s originality. So, with an exceptional eye for color, pattern, texture, and shape, Yifrach is a perfect person to ask about orchestrating a tablescape both whimsical and sophisticated, colorful and elegant.

Here, the designer selects glassware, flatware, linens, and more sure to elevate any dinner party this season.

“Although this piece was only launched last year, it’s been a vision of mine since I started L’Objet nearly 20 years ago. The craftsmanship behind this majestic piece is impressive and that’s why it took so many years to perfect it. I use it many times as a serving piece but also as a fruit bowl.”
