billet-doux: place settings

Thursday, January 31, 2013
Oh, how we love a beautiful place setting. Having a gorgeous an inspiring pattern makes it easy to change the look seasonally by incorporating different chargers and accent pieces. When we look for patterns for home, we often think of their ability to transform with different layers as well as stand the test of time in their design and durability. That's why we are so excited about the ScalamandrĂ© for Lenox patterns and Oscar de la Renta's tropical inspired line. (We wrote about the ScalamandrĂ© Zebra pattern here.) These look like the perfect additions to your personal collection, and they would be easy to change up throughout the years. 

 Top: Our favorite from the Lenox collaboration is the Bouvier pattern, based on the ScalamandrĂ© Tuileries silk print Jackie O used in her NYC bedroom - very chic. 
Middle: The  best-selling Love Birds (left), a perennially fresh pattern of one the earliest and most beloved ScalamandrĂ© patterns, and (right) Toile Tale,  an enchanting Chinoisierie pattern of beautiful flowers.
Bottom: Oscar de la Renta knows the beauty of tradition, as well as life in the tropics. This blue + white line of hand-painted stoneware is based on his beloved Punta Cana lifestyle - something we'd love to incorporate in our lives and our home. Plus, think of how cute they would look with Rattan chargers or dressed up with Barcelona Silver.
