Setting the Scene
Give your next dinner party a boost with these sumptuous place settings
(page 2 of 4)
To stay cool with this sleek look, white, black and a pop of color are all you need. The table runner and placemat create a nice frame for the dinnerware, which acts as a neutral base for this look’s standout element—the napkin. In addition to the hit of green, the napkin breaks up the geographic prints from the runner and placemat with subtle floral imagery. Complete this modern look with understated silver- and stemware, keeping the focus on your statement piece.
Where to buy: Coupe dinner plate, $3.99, and Coupe salad plate, $2.99, both from World Market; Marimekko Puutarhurin Parhaat napkin, $25 for set of 2, Chilewich rib weave placemat in pearl, $12, Chilewich pressed vinyl runner, $40, all from The Century House; silverware, photographer’s own.
