Christmas table with contrasting black and gold accents as well as contemporary textiles and pleated plates, crystal glasses and simple cutlery. The new style rules for the upcoming festive season add a contemporary twist to luxury elegance. This bold tablescape comes to life thanks to the flirty, pleated tablemats and the candle holders/ place cards, whereas in the centre of the table, a cow appears from a golden bowl with irreverent irony. Here, no other details are necessary: a few pinecones here and there and everything is ready for your Christmas dinner.
For an elegance tablescape go for place mats such as these: with shiny pleats.
For a characterful table, replace traditional red with black; this adds a contemporary twist.
A simple yet effective décor idea? Tiny tea lights that double as place cards, go for matching saucers and place mats too.
