Contemporary Table Setting

Table_setting_holiday_1We asked Architectural Designer Cat Wei, co-host of DIY Network's Material Girls series and co-founder of her firm CMCW, LLC, in New York City, how we could dress up a table for the holidays.

She suggested a sophisticated palette of warm chocolate brown, winter whites, and polished silver to create an elegant and modern holiday place setting. Candlestick holders cast from deer antlers were paired with organic inspired flatware set on rich brown napkins. The red felt placemats are handmade and cut into snowflakes, using the same process as you did in grade school. Crisp white china on kiri wood stumps with red chopsticks add dimension. A red ceramic votive flower holder adds interest to the center, while scented pinecones scattered at the base of the antlers complete the holiday ardor.
