Happy Tabletop Tuesday, everyone! Today we are bringing you two tabletops that we designed with our amazing Virtual Table feature. If you haven’t tried it, we really encourage you to give it a shot and see what beautiful tabletops you can create.
With that said, each year Pantone, a world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems, picks a color that will represent an entire year. This year, 2014, the color is Radiant Orchid. According to a Pantone press release, “Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Institute. “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Today we are bringing you our version of the Radiant Orchid tabletop. We started with a Lamour Linen in Violet then built up from there. Since Radiant Orchid is modern and surprisingly versatile we chose to use some of our gold pieces to highlight the purple hues. Surprisingly, Radiant Orchid complements many colors and when paired with colors such as olive, teal, turquoise and deep greens it creates a marvelous combination. This reason exactly is why we chose to create two similar, yet very different place settings around our linen.
With our first design, we used the Purple Charles Sadek Sevres to complement the Radiant Orchid, Dynasty 24K flatware, Barcelona Gold bread and butter plate, Purple Vintage Glassware and a Gold Chiavari chair.
For our second place setting we wanted to go with something that was a bold compliment to the Radiant Orchid without being overpowering. To do this we chose the Barcelona Gold charger, Green Charles Sadek Sevres China, Gold Lyons Flatware, Green Vintage Glass, and Gold Floral Lace Water Goblet complete with a Gold Chiavari Chair.
It’s really no secret how much we love our Charles Sadek Sevres Collection of china and these two place settings are the perfect example of how versatile they are! It’s easy to dismiss them as a bold pattern and to just pair the china with simple pieces, but we say be BOLD and pair it with something you wouldn't have paired it with. Have fun with it!
