The Hostess With the Mostess: The Incomparable Steak Diane

She might not be cooking the dinner, but Steak Diane sure does know how to put together one hell of a dinner party. The founder of design studio Chez Diane, Steak creates some of the most fun garments and ornaments for your table, from patchwork bags to placemats adorned with shellfish and more, and we are obsessed!

Our emails start something like this: “Steak, we are obsessed with you. We want to lounge in a clamshell with you. Share a lobster. Possible?” How can you not want to be Steak Diane? Zsa Zsa, Martha and Lilly Pulitzer all rolled into one. And, as taken as we are with the hostess herself, our lives seem lackluster without her outré-festive home collection including the La Fumeé coaster set, La Serviette napkins, Les Huîtres placemat and reusable lobster bib.—all available on Steak’s website.
