ith Christmas around the corner, we want to start setting the table in true festive spirit. So why don’t you get into the Christmas spirit and set a table in true Scandinavian style? Simple yet festive, it brings together plates and glasses with clean aesthetics and golden detailing and a magical glow which form the perfect vibe; this is how woven centrepieces, lit candles, carafes and shiny vases, no need for a tablecloth and the space becomes informal and homely. Only a few details are missing: decorations and small pine tree branches hang from the ceiling. This how you can turn your ordinary table into a special occasion to celebrate with family and friends.

Three pieces one styles

Scandinavian-style decorations.

Tiny, clean aesthetics, and one off pieces: you can hang your Christmas decorations above your table for a unique and original vibe.


White, cylindrical, to be placed here and there on the table, used them to build tiny dramatic arrangements. 

No tablecloth.

To give a fresh and more informal look to your Christmas table, get right of the table cloth and show off an exposed timber surface: perfect for a shabby chic style.
