adeira stripes, seashells and starfish: nautical style never goes out of fashion, perfect for a summer tablescape too. China is nonchalantly paired with crystal, ideal for a family brunch, breakfast on the roof terrace or a dinner with friends. Woven trim (inspired by boat ropes) and the delicate shades of sky-blue create a soothing feel, refreshing the table. There mood is informal and summery mood, so there’s no need for a tablecloth: napkins in natural linen and cutlery in” knotted” steel complete the look, in perfect casual-chic style.

Style details

White and sky-blue.

Madeira stripes and pastel tones: Mediterranean style is served and the table is instantly fresher and brighter.

Nautical decorations.

Instead of the “overused” fish, go for seashells and starfish. The summer table is more elegant and unconventional.

Table linen.

Placemats, runners or simple napkins: limit table linen, yet go for ecru-coloured linen for a chic touch.
