Victorian vibe

Had YOUR share of brightly colored floral designs for summer entertaining? These animal motifs make plastic look fantastic. Case in point: This laser-cut, doily-edged laminated wood tray, $175, by the French firm IBride is one of several Victorian-meets-surrealism designs featuring lifelike birds in Elizabethan finery. It is paired with a shatter-resistant espresso cup and saucer from Italy, $10. There's also a Boston terrier four-piece set of plates by Pop Ink (not shown). The tray, dishes, cup and saucer are available at Show, 1722 N. Vermont Ave., L.A.; (323) 644-1960, The clear acrylic, 5-inch-high, LED light chandelier, above, operates on AAA batteries and can be grouped to create mood lighting, $19 each, (enter "chandelier" in the search field).
