Designer Todd Oldham borrowed the playful undersea illustrations adorned on these dishes from 1950s biology textbooks; 60 years later, they're serving as lessons in style. Pair them with colorful, quick-dry seersucker napkins and an hourglass-shaped coffeemaker with a polished wood collar for a simple, stylish table.
