Summer’s not cooling down anytime soon!
Things are just heating up with these trendy new looks, sure to make a statement! Vibrant colors, edgy patterns & creative use of decor combine for six radical table designs, perfect for your summer bash.
The brights have it. Drawing inspiration from the grungy exuberance of America’s Rust Belt, this look evokes a summer marketplace feel. The orange of our vibrant Plaster linen provides a cheerful backdrop for on-trend yellow and brown-rimmed rustic plateware and Venice chairs with bright chairpads. Menu and table cards featuring orange brushwork tie back to the linen, while hand-lettered leaves form unique DIY place cards. Floral centerpieces pop with gerberas, lilies and bright roses, and this season’s must-have hanging hoops have been wrapped with leafy garlands and airy garden arrangements for a sunny, rustic vibe. Yellow and orange table draping and lively bud jars catch the eye from afar. Color really does speak louder than words.

Style is golden. At the heart of this chic, timelessly romantic look is our delicate gold Mehndi linen overlay, gracefully paired with a lavish rose duchess satin. Gold-trimmed glassware and gilded chargers, plateware and cutlery lend an opulent appeal complemented by golden napkins, golden chair covers and gilt Venice chairs. Delicate table, menu and place cards feature elegant curlicues, traditional typography and blush tones in keeping with the classically stylish aesthetic. An on-trend floral centerpiece brings together the light and dark tones of calla lilies, dahlias and tea roses for a dramatic look that can transcend seasons. Gold draping, oversized gold picture frames housing blush pink textiles and a dreamy collection of decadent chandeliers add to the romance. It’s a look that adheres to the golden rule.
Sugar proves a sweet visual treat in this whimsical candy store-themed design. Our vibrant Backsplash linen pairs with our energetic Dingle Balls table runner and the dramatic angles of our Phoenix chairs for a fun and quirky table aesthetic complemented by outdoor bench seating. Background greenery ties in leafy table garlands and playful centerpieces featuring cheerful gerbera daisies and festooned with chocolate-dipped strawberries, colorful macaroons and bright lollipops. Dessert-themed menu cards reminiscent of old-school candy wrappers combine with hard candy place cards and table numbers crafted from chocolate-filled boxes, while a pink-and-white candy store backdrop does double duty as a dessert buffet. Proving this theme to be some serious eye candy.
Opposites attract the eye. Our patterned Salerno linen forms a striking base for a color scheme that celebrates the 2017 Pantone color of the year: Greenery. Green napkins, sashes and chairpads and a cascading green centrepiece provide an earthy contrast against the rich blues of the linen, whose textured edges are mirrored in the torn-paper design of the table cards and place cards. Soft candles, textured gold chargers and decorative river stones arranged around and inside the centrepiece heighten the organic vibe. Catering to the craft cocktail trend, our new mahogany bar and backbar, housing spirits, votives and bud glasses, forms a striking centerpoint that combines form and function. Nearby, cozy lounge seating arranged against softly uplit draping provides spaces to gather and socialize. It’s a design that will have you in fine spirits.
Rustic just got reworked. A modern, masculine twist on the country chic trend, this look combines homespun wood, sleek black leather and bold florals for visual appeal suited to a variety of occasions. The bright motifs of our Milkweed linen are picked out in structured centerpieces featuring purple alliums and textured greenery. Knotted purple napkins pair with leather plates and hammered, wood-backed menu cards for a statement moment. Wood recurs in pallets that form the backlit backdrop, where a marquee “love” sign takes pride of place. Purple draping, turf carpeting and English garden-inspired hedge designs round out this confident take on the rustic trend.
Art is all about the experience – and so are events. Inspired by its Detroit Institute of Arts setting, this artistic design folds painterly creativity into every moment. The impressionist Rococo table linen pops even further with bright, trailing florals suggestive of paint brushes, artfully stacked geometric plateware and a sculptural smattering of tea candles. Miniature easels house place cards, while the paint-themed menu cards are mounted on canvas backdrops. Mirrored bar stools and side tables create a dramatic, linear appeal softened by arrangements of tall glass candle holders and greenery. Stunning strands of roses spill from paint tins, and a decadent canary yellow Madame sofa positioned off to one side adds unique visual interest. It’s a look deserving of critical acclaim.
