Wednesday morning eye candy. We missed Elle Decor's Dining by Design event earlier this month, so we were pleased to see the Chron cover it in today's H&G section. In "Green Inspirations for Holiday Table Decor," writer Susan Fornoff focuses on the eco-friendly ideas the designers came up with.
The space pictured above (in the large photo) features reclaimed and recycled redwood stumps/seats, while the table base consists of a pair of eucalyptus stumps. Sheets of redwood serve as partitions and the "carpet" is actually a thick layer of sod.
White pebbles act as an organic table covering.
At first glance, this looks like a traditional table, but notice that the utensils are all lined up on the right of the plates a perfect update for those of us who can never remember which side the forks should be on.
The ultimate in texture: A flokati tablecloth.
For more details on the above tables and to view additional photos check out the Chronicle article.
