Table of the Months: Table decoration in blue, red and white striped

For our column “Table of the Month” we went full-on stripes mode. With maritime vibes, stripes and a good mix of red, white and blue, the feeling of sea and summer is brought directly to the table. Just the thing for your next summer invitation!

Stripes, the sea and everything that revolves around the art of living, enjoying the relaxed get-togethers by the shore and feeling the salty air blow into one‘s hair, is the inspiration behind this issue‘s „Table of the Month“. Blue, red, and white in all their hues are the foundation colors that, along with the vertical and horizontal stripes, bring the feeling of the sea and summer ambiance right to the table. Together with the cutlery in shapes inspired by the sea, one can easily pretend to enjoy a nice supper at the Hamptons.
