How to restyle your tableware at no cost for the upcoming season

When entering in a new season, we all wish to renew our tableware. We look at our old dishes and glasses and we compare them with those glam table settings pictures seen on décor magazines, or on Instagram and Pinterest. Looking more carefully, you may not need a big budget to restyle your tableware.  Why? Have you ever tried to combine different styles and materials together?

We have assembled for you, possible combinations to inspire your table décor. Some ideas came directly from our customers. We have also selected three “Jolly” items that will work out your dinner table in any season. Consider them as the Little Black Dress in your closet that fits for every occasion.

Discover the potential of your tableware

You probably have many different types of tableware: porcelain, glass, ceramic, wood. Each set is different, but it might work so perfectly together if you just break the “matching rule” that is in your mind. Try to create a less ordinary place setting for your next gathering, mixing together old style and modern style dishes, wood and porcelain, glasses of assorted colors and sizes. Even textile, tablecloth and napkins, can have different patterns and colors, as long as they are made of the same fabric (i.e. linen, cotton, …).  Kitchen towels are on trend now: use them as placemats for a casual twist.
