Easter Sunday is this weekend and it is one of the many upcoming holidays where you will likely be entertaining guests in the dining room. And what better way is there to entertain than with glassware, serveware and decorative table top accessories? We gathered a few of our favorite pieces from Iittala that we think you’ll love for entertaining accessories.
Iittala began in a little town in Finland as a glass-production factory dating back to the late 1800s. The company’s glass-work was of high quality and quickly became highly sought-after in the design world after Finnish designers Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck became involved with Iittala. With the help of Aalto and Franck, Iittala emerged as a leader in modern dining sets and now today produce beautiful dinnerware, serveware, vases and other accessories for home decor.
