Splendid enough to add instant sophistication and stable enough to withstand clumsy dinner guests, the Ruban candlesticks (small, $460; large, $650) take their cue from a 1930s design by Jean Puiforcat. Votives and candelabras are also available.

The Danish company’s Kontra vacuum jug ($269) offers the polished look of fine silver in a practical stainless steel package. The 1-liter vessel has a pop-up, vacuum-sealed top that helps keep coffee hot and prevent spillage.
