At Libeco, we wondered what perfect linen tablescapes looked like. We sat down together with our stylist and opened up our linen cupboard to see what we could put in action. The result? Three suggestions for the perfect linen tablescape. Feel free to use these settings as an inspiration for the holidays.
Maybe you are looking for something extraordinary, something more intimate? Then this setting might be the one for you. First, find a a dark background. The Polylin black suits your needs there. Should black be too strong a color, you could always go for a dark brown (arabica) or dark grey (smoke) alternative. The Polylin collection also provides napkins in these colors, but a Timmery flax or Feldhaus flax stripe napkin are great alternatives.
Next, finish your setting with the necessary tableware. Choose neutral cutlery (like silver) and balance out the color of your plates and glassware with the dark background. Use elements in natural wood and small candles to add warmth and life to your table.
The Libeco Christmas table is peaceful, light and easy to set up. We start with an organic linen Timmery oyster tablecloth. A Polylin white tablecloth could be a suitable alternative as well. When using neutral cutlery and white plates, don’t forget to add a color or two for a perfect balance – red and green are typical for this time of the year.
The Evergreen and Prints napkins bring in the Christmas atmosphere and are terrific when used together. Feel free to add some green to your table: fresh pine branches, mistletoe,… but never overdo: less is more.
