Inspired by Renaissance-design majolica, Maryanna Suzanna owners Jaap Hilbrand and Mary Ann Zovko have made a specialty of handcrafted ceramic tabletops from Tuscany. The tabletops have wrought-iron bases forged in Italy and are available in sizes large enough to accommodate a Renaissance banquet (rounds are up to 51 inches in diameter, and rectangular models are six feet long). The table below, decorated with the Frutti di Venezia pattern, is 33.5 by 34 inches and costs $1,975 (prices start at $1,100). Tabletops are so big that "it often takes the clay a month to dry after it's shaped," says Zovko. The duo also accessorize with majolica dinnerware (the Raffaelesco pattern; $35-$150 per piece), handblown Murano glass, and Venetian crystal chandeliers. 313 1/2 Worth Avenue; 561-833-0204.
