or your winter table, it might be nice to reference the mountains and appease the palate with traditional recipes. So, what about creating the perfect feel starting from the tablescape itself? Replace standard terracotta plates or Tyrolean tablecloths, bright although slightly dated, with a well-planned mismatched tablescape with natural references and contemporary details. Similarly to this one that transforms leafy pine trees into a perfect tablecloth, here fluid lines in optical white dance around plates painted black and a wooden tray that has the same sweet fragrance of a forest. Everything is set: now it’s up to you to serve polenta, roe deer, zelten and chestnuts.

A wooden tray.

Part tray and part chopping board, it adds a natural touch to your table and has the same fragrance of a forest too.

Black plates.

Clean lines and a simple design: a plate set such as this never grows old.

A decorative tablecloth.

A decorative tablecloth. A dense forest with several lines sketched in white: be bold with a tablecloth such as this, although you should keep your plate set clean and simple.
