Blogging the Chronicle: Green Table Decor

Nov 28, 2007

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.
