Fine Dining: Tablescaping
Learn the art of tablescaping and make the most of every mealtime
There’s never been a better time to grips with tablescaping – and thanks to an edit of reimagined vintage plates, sculptural glassware, print-loaded linens and exclusive glazed ceramics from our best-loved brands and new design talents, it couldn’t be simpler. Here we walk you through seven inspirational set ups – just add a mood-boosting playlist and a delicious supper to invoke a feast for all the senses.
Milky white ceramics from none other than, Astier de Villatte pop on inky table linens. Try laying out Liberty’s Delilah print tablecloth, peppered with azaleas, carnations and starflowers for a luxurious base. Barwell cut crystal glasses from Soho Home ease the intensity of the dark floral tablescape, infusing a light and delicate sensibility.
Dinner in Tokyo
Focus on the flow, harmony and movement of your table by embracing the Japanese concept of kanso. Opt for pieces from HK Living’s Kyoto collection to radiate a raw, earthy simplicity into place settings. Bonus points for counterbalancing with bloom-boosted tablecloths.
Grace breakfast tables with pieces from our limited-edition Floribunda collection - a celebration and reimagining of classic blooms. From Zsuzsanna Nyul ‘s Hungarian Rhapsody dinner plate, to Coco & Wolf's Amelie print Tana Lawn™ cotton placemat, each exclusive piece is littered with vibrant blooms and can be mix and matched. This maximal dining set is not for the faint-hearted.
Themes are always a good idea, so bring a slice of the animal kingdom to your table with safari-soaked placemats and kaleidoscopic linen tablecloths from Avenida Home. Roll jungle-inspired napkins into Quail’s ceramic zebra napkin rings for a truly wild flourish – it’s all in the detail.
Go Big on Bamboo
Rest leafy greens on Bordallo Pinheiro’s bamboo charger plate, exclusively designed for Liberty. Stick to the green theme and team with a ceramic banana leaf pitcher and tablemat, festooned with foliage for a tropical infusion. Verdant green fronds and bushy flower arrangements are encouraged.
Breathe serenity into settings by layering blues on blues. Liberty’s Leontine tablecloth is loaded with dancing botanical ferns, creating the perfect base for painterly Florentine ceramic plates and weighty crystal wine glasses. Clash tonal blue hues with a mesmerising constellation printed napkin from Summerill & Bishop – a simple, yet effective round-off piece with an impactful punch.
Bring The Outside In
Greet green-based spreads with a bountiful dahlia tablecloth, partnered with Bordallo Pinheiro’s quintessential artichoke plate. Chartreuse-tinted glasses and coordinating linen napkins and coasters are far more than functional, bringing colour depth and consideration to the table. A winning set for green-fingered folk.
