The new Art of Bel Usage is a back­gammon set (shown, $28,000) made from precious wood and sterling silver—a nod to the chess set created by the company’s founder, Jean Puiforcat, in 1927. The functional art piece is one of three new releases that also include the Art of Fine Taste (comprising a water carafe, sommelier bucket, beaker, and vase from Patrick Jouin and a set of ceremonial chopsticks) and the Art of Decoration (two vases and a centerpiece in black porcelain). +33.1.45.63.10.10, www.puiforcat.com
