Entertaining Elements: Setting a New Traditional Table

The new traditional table nods to classic designs that have withstood the test of time, but cleans them up a bit, or gives them a slight twist with an even slighter sense of humor. This is a mix of simple modernist pieces and time-honored vernacular favorites, made just a little bit new in subtle ways that will last for years to come:

1: Arctica tableware by Arabia
2: Parsons Tapered Leg dining table from Restoration Hardware
3: a footed glass bowl holds a fruit-and-ivy centerpiece, via Martha Stewart Weddings
4: place cards by Paper and Pinafore on Etsy
5: Illusion Goblet by Orrefors
6: Hemstitched Linen Napkins at Williams Sonoma
7: Merci Small Candleholder at Crate & Barrel
8: Artichoke Sphere beeswax candle by Big Dipper Wax Works
