And now we add some contrast to create the visual interest - black and white against the beautiful patina of the fruitwood table. Using the Frances Palmer plates and bowls gives us the wonderful geometry created by her use of shapes and textures. Each piece has its own unique "feel" and together they form a continuous thread that weaves its way down the tabletop. We add the brilliant napkins with a classic damask design printed on them which is a nod to our history and play on the legacy of table linens themselves. Now we need to create a spark with some additional color and perhaps some height at the center of the table to give it a focal point around which we can build the rest of our tablescape.
