Perfecting Casual Chic Style at the Table

Perfecting Casual Chick Style at the Table

Two settings for an easy yet sophisticated look

You're doing it with your wardrobe — so why not replicate your relaxed chic style at the table? We've put together two looks that work with principle from the world of fashion: combine casual pieces with sophisticated, classic or vintage items. It's the high-low effect that we think is here to stay, and a new way to think about creating stylish and spirit-boosting looks for lots more at-home dining in the months to come.

1. Earthy Minimalism

Start with a placemat

Take inspiration from outfits that begin with a great pair of jeans, and start with a classic woven placemat. Our new Colombian woven mats offer a natural and textured backdrop to daily dining. They're made from 100% fique, a naturally sustainable and biodegradable fibre native to the Andean regions of Colombia.

Layer as you go

If you keep a common thread (here, we chose moody yet earthy colours), then it's carte blanche as you build your setting. We worked with Rina Menardi's ceramic dinnerware in varying shades, and tied it together with a knotted fringed linen napkin and Ergo, our latest cutlery pattern from Portugal.

2. Deco Glam

Make it relaxed and elegant

For this second look, we worked with our bestselling stain-resistant and washable waxed paper placemats. Developed through cultivation, and not deforestation, you can feel great about adding them to your table.

Contrast your mat with a little glam

The design world has had a big crush on British artist and designer Luke Edward Hall lately, and his collection of dinnerware for Richard Ginori brings to life Hall's imagination and love of Greek and Roman mythology. Read the Vogue article about his very chic New York launch party HERE.

Complete the look by mixing and matching (just a bit)

Dibbern's Golden Lane dinner plate has a subtle touch of gold that picks up on the palette of Ginori's Il Viaggio di Nettuno soup plate, the Duet napkin makes the black in the dinnerware and mat pop, and Cutipol's iconic Goa flatware rounds out this playful yet sophisticated look.
