French Modern Tablescape

Not quite formal - not quite country, the best way to describe this week's table is French modern more than anything else (I doubt that there is a tablescape designation for "French Modern" but here it is anyway.) Pat found the placemats at Tuesday Morning recently and really wanted to use them.
Over view of the table

Pat used a very simple centerpiece - a tall, black metal Eiffel Tower surrounded by a grape vine, grapes, and assorted wine. She use black Depression glass candle holders with 14" Oatmeal colored tapers.

The place setting - glass plates to show off the placemat
The placemats are extra thick cork backed - slightly smaller than a regular placemat

I fell in love with this flatware after I saw Replacements using it on their Facebook page - "Fluence" by Oneida

It's hard to describe this dishware - they are super thick, polished glass and very silky feeling - absolutely fabulous on any table

One of my favorite patterns of glassware from Pier 1 - it is called "Urban Sable."

On loan from our Cousin, these silver Bread/Butter plates are perfect for the place setting. Pat chose not polish them so that they would look slightly rustic.

  1. You're right. This table's uniqueness is just beautiful!! I don't know which I like best, the placemats, the flatware, dishes or those unusual but gorgeous glasses!!! Great job, Ladies!!

  2. Your table setting is amazing. I love the placemats. Did you buy them this year? I would love to find some like those.

  3. Superb!! Those placemats are perfect for the basis of this table. It all gels so well (and I LOVE those glasses!). Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  4. French Modern sounds good to me. There are so many elements to like on your table starting ith the shape of the dishes. I particularly like the flatware.
