Consider your holiday place-setting decisions made: These striking plates from interior designer Liz Caan and ceramicist Jill Rosenwald were destined to anchor a dramatic Thanksgiving spread.

While collaborating on their new tabletop collection, the two local design mavens played to each other’s strengths, combining Rosenwald’s penchant for vibrant patterns with Caan’s flair for contrast. The resulting jet-black chargers and gold-splattered dessert plates mix “something very structured and very random,” Caan explains. Pair with their funky “Brushstroke” cocktail tray and serving bowls, and turn your table into an instant conversation piece.
