To choose a sideboard for a holiday dinner, Turner, whose book Nathan Turner’s American Style is out now, went to L.A. shop Lief and found a vintage Swedish 1920s piece ($8,700; liefalmont.com). Its neutral color and simple lines are a great starting point for his laid-back, elegant look.

Embrace Items with Crossover Style

These serving utensils from Astier de Villatte combine a mod matte finish with an old-fashioned, formal shape. “They’re elegant but not fussy,” says Turner. “It may be the Californian in me that can’t get too fancy.” ($30 each; abchome.com.)

Dinner plates with a traditional design, like this handmade Bulgarian one from Bulgar’s Troyan line, come in modern colors. ($30; gramercyandco.com.)

Rethink Serving

Instead of just putting glasses out on the sideboard, use a rattan tray to arrange drinks. “It’s another texture on the table. I like the contrast of the metal handles on this Palau tray,” says Turner. (From $148; williams-sonoma.com.)
