Canadian business partners and best friends Hugh Duthie and Cynthia Ashworth travel to Vietnam twice a year looking for artisans who can meld sleek designs and bold colors with the 2,000-year-old process of traditional lacquerware. The results are housewares like lacquered-bamboo vases ($75) and a mid-century Scandinavian-influenced chair with Asian silk pillows ($595). Tableware ranges from $35 for a simple tray to $250 for a lacquer bowl inlaid with circles of mother-of-pearl.
