This Thanksgiving, NYC event designer David Stark and team are seeing squares everywhere—in homewares (and clothing)—which inspired them to create a minimal, modern take on fall entertaining.

That’s not a tablecloth—it’s a Quaderna Table by Italian design house Zanotta, designed in 1970 and made of white laminate with a screen-printed grid.

Frosted Light Water Glasses, made in Italy by Ichendorf, are $32 each at Barneys New York.

The blue plate is by ceramic artist Paula Greif. The Astier de Villatte Flatware is available at John Derian, and the wood-handled steak knives are from Laguiole.

For an informal centerpiece, David’s team mixed precise grids with fall foliage. Squares of chicken wire draped on top of cylindrical glass vases hold individual stems in place.

White/Black Check Linen Napkins are made in France by Linge Particulier, from one of our favorite sources: Lost & Found Shop in LA; $20 each.
