The dining table is undoubtedly a key part of the home, and as such carries with it a whole host of expectations. Ideally, it is to be the platform where memorable meals take place, on special occasions as well as everyday dining activity.
Setting and arranging the table therefore takes on particular importance. In order to do this to get the most unique looking effect from the dining table its helpful to keep all possible products in mind. Here are a few tips for adding designer accessories and helpful items to the dining table.
Salt and pepper dispensers are a mainstay of many dining tables, but familiarity in this case need not produce a dull or unimaginative deployment of seasoning. Indeed the use of an item such as the Craft Oak Salt and Pepper Mill by Normann Copenhagen offers a unique look and style for the seasoning of dishes.
The natural look of the mill is created by a combination of natural oak base topped with white marble. A special grinder inside the casing ensures that the seasonings are crushed up properly. Elegant and striking, the mill is also available in a smaller size. The salt mill is topped with a white coloured marble segment, while the pepper mill is topped with a black piece.
Another essential that can be given the designer treatment is the humble napkin and holder. The above Buddy Napkin Holder is an eye-catching and modern take on how to store and provide napkins for diners. With its two moulded black plastic figures strongly holding paper napkins squarely in place, the holder is a neat and tidy addition to the dining table.
A padded layer on the bottom part of the holder makes sure that no scratching to the table can take place. The unusual graphic creation is testament to the originality of Umbra's ideas, and one that can mark a table out as belonging to a discerning resident.
The use of unusually crafted or designed glassware can add a further dimension to the dining table. A collection such as the Ripple Glasswarefrom Ferm Living provides a superb way of fashioning table in elegance and distinction. With a full range of glass items available, all utilising the striking ripple effect on the glass, the collection is guaranteed to make an impression. The Ferm Living champagne saucers, wine glasses, carafes and more can all produce a wonderful effect when brought to the table.
