Modern Place Settings
Inspiration for modern place settings can be found anywhere, from popular design blogs to print magazines. Luxurious living and elegant place settings go hand-in-hand and it doesn't matter if you only set your dining table for special occasions or you like to enjoy a beautifully set table year-round. We’ll give you some modern table setting ideas that can serve as inspiration in helping you create a flawless tablescape.
Ideas for Setting the Perfect Table
Setting the perfect table involves incorporating a variety of components to create a layered look.
First, consider the Linens that you put on the table. Tablecloths are considered more traditional, while modern table settings use runners. Table runners are very versatile and that they can be layered on top of a tablecloth or placed vertically as an alternative to placemats. Cloth napkins are very formal but they add a refined look to the place setting. Consider folding napkins in unique shapes or strategically placing them in empty wine glasses.
Next, you will place your china or stoneware in a layered fashion. The first layer should be a dinner plate, followed by a salad plate, then finished off with a modern bowl. You may want to even use a charger plate under your dinner plate for an eye-catching pop of color. Dinner plates are larger than dinner plates and highlight the beauty of the other table décor.
And finally, don't forget to add centerpieces. A striking centerpiece will complete your modern place setting and add interest as people gather around the table. Some popular centerpiece ideas include vases complete with fillers such as flowers, twigs, and crystals as well as pillar, taper, and tea light candles and candle holders of varying heights.
