At the Table: Soloscapes
Explore new table possibilities with creative place settings for dining solo or together
You shouldn’t need a crowd to get creative with your place settings. Go the extra mile and put on a curated table, whether you’re entertaining or dining solo. Buying Manager for Home, Bryony Sheridan, shares her table inspiration for the ultimate soloscape, encouraging you to show yourself and your nearest as much attention as when you’re table building for guests. So carry your self-care rituals into mealtimes and make an occasion of every plate.
It might be a bit nippy outside but that won’t deter me… whether it’s a picnic in the park, tapas on the terrace or lunch on the lawn, I’m here for all the alfresco entertaining. Use a clash of colour with this Vaisselle plate and a contrasting tablecloth from Society of Wanderers to trick yourself into thinking it’s mid-Summer.
For me, print-play with florals is the only way to go. Matched with this iconic poppy plate from Astier de Villatte is a Liberty tablecloth in June. Perfectly pink for romancing in the sunset sky of the evening.
The honeysuckle print by Patch NY from Avenida is the perfect backdrop for the sugary and creamy glass from Helle Mardahl. Paired with the intensity of the season’s best tulips and blood orange, it’s a winning combination with a new twist of pink and green.
When you want to go green and lean, build your table with leafy ceramics from Astier de Villatte and this radicchio bowl, set against the oak leaf Thyme tablecloth. For pureness, add the whitest of white of an Astier de Villatte plate.
For the love birds; lay up a table with these Quail salt and pepper shakers, this painterly flora and fauna inspired tablecloth by Nathalie Lete from Avenida and add the warm gem-like colours through the sparkly glassware.
