Tableware as a backdrop for candlesticks and flowers on the tabletop

Nothing beats the old school classic look updated for a contemporary feel. Decorate the table with candlesticks, flowers and a suspended chandelier as a centerpiece! Match tablecloths and runners to chair upholstery and dress up the tabletop with accents and accessories to match your decor theme. Wall decor using antique tableware or ladles can be used to create an interesting focal point.

Ornately Ethnic

A little ostentatious display of taste with a tribal, Indian or Moroccan theme can make for a regal dining experience, straight out of a palace! Choose an ornate table of wood or marble with intricately carved chairs for a 'wow' factor, and accessorize with brass candlesticks and lamps for a regal ambience.

Statement Pieces

Use sight lines creatively as well as paying attention to the height at which things are hung/suspended to create visual texture using statement pieces. The asymmetrical pattern of the light orbs with conspicuous wall art as a backdrop defines the room’s character while the earthy hues of colors accentuate overall decor perfectly.

All you need is a deep frame, some soil and a little daily watering for a natural grass topped table. No need to worry about spilled glasses of water anymore!
