SIMPLY SILVER • In 1904, Danish silversmith Georg Jensen (1866–1935) established his namesake company, which has been a staple for sleek,
modern, and timeless silverware ever since. So, naturally, it was one of the first places we looked when choosing flatware to inspire place settings.
Our pick: the strikingly clean, organic Caravel collection designed in 1957 by Henning Koppel (1918–1981), which won the prestigious Der goldene
Löffel award in 1963. For evidence of its eternal appeal and versatility, turn to Selections (Page 25).
