Let the entertaining begin! With holiday season upon us, it’s time to bring fresh decorating ideas to the table. Spin Ceramics’ collection of delightful pieces offers plenty of inspiration. The Chinese porcelain tabletop brand blends ancient techniques with the modern artistry of eight contemporary designers who are based in Spin’s Shanghai design studio.

The results are wonderful and often whimsical—captivating designs impeccably rendered by master artisans in the Jingdezhen region, which for many centuries has maintained its reputation as China’s “capital of porcelain.” Since the techniques of the craft date as far back as the 13th-14th-century Yuan Dynasty, you could say that all tea served in Spin Ceramics is steeped in history.

The brand recently opened its flagship store in SoHo and it just relaunched its online store to feature a wider selection of product: store.spinceramics.com. And newsflash: Spin Ceramics is offering free domestic shipping until December 15.

Feast your eyes after the jump: we’ve curated some recommendations for reinvigorating your table (or gift list) these holidays. Ranging from complete dish sets and salt and pepper shakers to candles and vases, these exquisite, enigmatic pieces will get the conversation going.
