3 style ideas for dining table settings
Setting the dining table can be done with such variation depending on what is being served, what style you aim for and what the occasion is. So, it’s always a good idea to stock up on inspiration and tableware that let you mix and match to your heart’s delight. Here are three easy styles to get your own ideas going.
Patterned, playful, natural
A simple style of dinnerware as a base, combined with a fresh pattern on side plates and bowls, gives your table a lively, handcrafted expression. It’s a nice way of harmonising traditional and contemporary design. Wooden dishes and seagrass place mats add texture and help boost the natural, tactile feel.
Elegance never goes out of style
Classic white dinnerware is super easy to coordinate for a timeless look that suits any occasion. A touch of gold on cutlery, coasters and candle holders strikes a festive, elegant tone – as does bringing back old-school with beautiful crystalline glasses. Finish off with a flower bouquet and you’re all set.
A scene set in calm colours
This Asian influenced table setting brings together modern, minimal shapes and great functionality. Mixing similar dinnerware pieces in soft, serene colours creates a calm and cosy atmosphere. Both matte and glossy surfaces, complemented with small black details, add a stylish depth.
