#ROBBYSAYS TABLE SETTING TIPS & TRENDS
Whether you’re having a classic family meal, a relaxed Sunday lunch or a sophisticated soiree, a superbly styled table should always set the tone. This begins with on-trend tableware, glassware and cutlery which is at the core of any table setting. We believe that the secret to an eye-catching table setting is to layer it with textures, colours and patterns.
We take a look at a few key elements to inspire your next great table styling.
A sumptuous linen tablecloth in a plain colour is versatile and is a basic necessity that every household should have as it can be used to style any table from rustic and traditional to unique and contemporary and will provide pleasure for years to come. With a linen tablecloth, you can add a touch of refinement to any table setting .
TACTILE TEXTURES AND LAYERS
Use layers to create visual interest. Add height and texture to the dining table by layering a textured place mat on top of the cloth and then stacking dinner and side plates, bowls and napkins. Creating layered place settings with stacked crockery and napkins creates an interesting look by giving depth to your dining table.
Add colour to your table with the use of coloured glassware and cutlery. Gold and coloured flatware is also an opulent addition to any table setting and is a look which is set to be huge this year. Our love for warm metallics has been ongoing for some years now and we’ve used it throughout the entire home. It’s moved on from rosy copper to gleaming brass and gold hues, which effortlessly transfer to the dining table. If you are searching for luxury table setting ideas, look no further than this trend which will add opulence to any meal. Combined with other luxury materials and patterns such as the the hand made Italian and French glassware seen below, gold table settings can be easily layered with other colors to add to the vibrancy of the look. Alternatively it can be pared back with earthy tones for a wonderfully natural feel with just a touch of sparkle.
