ith clean lines, minimalist geometries and pastel colors, this table reinterprets romantic style in a contemporary key. There are no flowers, buds or embroidered tablecloths. This mise en place goes for graphical dishes and naturals fabrics in strictly solid colors: a delicate shade of dusty pink next to classic white. Transparent glasses and accessories add a touch of light to this style which recalls the Orient. It aims for a soft lightness without becoming predictable and offers the right mood to put a twist on a romantic dinner, and is also perfect for adding refined elegance to the most important occasions.

Style details

The pentagonal dishes.

Less predictable than round dishes and “softer” than square ones, these pentagonal plates with rounded corners are an original and chic alternative.

The placemat.

In place of the tablecloth, go for an American placemat matched to the color of the dishes. They are more informal, but if you decide upon a woven or pleated fabric such as this one, they are always elegant.

White and pink.

It is the most romantic combination there is. Chic and delicate, it immediately adds a charming and refined touch in any version.
