For the Table
Princess Helene was forced to flee Vietnam in 1975, but thankfully she brought the beauty and refinement of her Saigon mansion with her. The An Family Collection, founded by the princess and her daughter Elizabeth An, is a home-decor line based on Vietnam's Chinese, French, and native artistic traditions. We love these ebony moonwood chopsticks cast in sterling-silver filigree and topped with jade. "They were inspired by the ones passed down to us by my great-great-grandfather's family," Elizabeth says. "My grandmother believed heirlooms should be enjoyed." $142 a pair; 866-263-2625; www.anfamily.com.
