nthracite-coloured plates, a splash of cream and a sprinkling of a chestnut scent: the perfect ingredients for your autumnal tablescape. Replace a standard tablecloth with a bare, wooden table that with its veining, creates instant warmth. This season’s menu combines subtle transparencies with handmade decorations, a mismatched table setting that dictates the new rules for informal, everyday style. Every place setting is unique, although the overall appearance is harmonious. On the contrary. It is precisely this apparent disorder that adds the right spark of creativity and makes the overall scheme feel exquisitely glamorous.
Anthracite-coloured plates could appear challenging, but if you combine them white porcelain and crystal glasses, they are ultra- chic.
In the centre of the table, two trays of different sizes serve as a new centrepiece.
Forget tablecloths, runners or table mats. Here, saucers, trays and bowls are artfully laid, so your table is going to be perfect at any rate.
