We’ve come up with a few fun and simple steps to help you create a spring-like table setting that conveys the fresh, clean feel of the season. We hope that these tips will help you fully enjoy this time of year and take your everyday dining experience to the next level.
We are lovers of naturally textured products, especially since our dining room tables are made of wood. We don’t believe in cluttering our table. Taking inspiration from the regeneration of nature in spring, we try to keep things simple and showcase wood’s perfect imperfections such as its grain and its variations in colours. Simplicity allows us to introduce a light and airy feel which keeps us in touch with nature.
We are obsessed with placing our Abaca textured place mats directly on the table this spring, especially natural pastel shades which create a simple, impactful contrast when set against the natural wood backdrop, while achieving a very soft, spring-like, fresh look. But, if you prefer to make a bold statement, add a pop of colour with our swirl round woven tablemats in shades of oranges, greens and pinks.
Nature and Light
Daffodils, tulips and irises are just some of the spring flowers that can help you to create a fresh look this spring, whether you decide to cut the individual flowers and allow them to float on water in a shallow glass bowl, or simply sit them upright in small glass vases or jars, we suggest that you line these up along the centre of your table to complete the look.
If it’s an evening meal that you’re trying to decorate your table for, you’ll need candles! Candles are always an easy centerpiece that can create a warm atmosphere in seconds. However, if you’re willing to go that extra step to create a unique and magical mood, you can also incorporate a range of light sources, for example, our Glass Lantern with wood handle and brass trim , to convey an exotic faraway location.
To ensure you’re using the full-potential of your creativity, paying attention to detail is key. Add a unique, elegant, fragrant touch to your table by simply wrapping your napkins in burlap and tucking in a twig of freesia or lavender.
Now it’s your turn! Dress up your table this spring!
