Winter brings with it the delights of food, the pleasures of the table, of entertaining friends and of indulgence. With Christmas come images of snow, of pine trees dressed in white, of the warm glow of the fire, of coloured lamps and decoration.
Shades of India has responded to this mood with a table collection that values nature, that cherishes the intimacy of an evening and that celebrates fine food and wine. Gone is the formal setting beloved of hotel dining rooms. The elegant Orion runner has been worked in foil printed linen that is stitched to give a checkerboard pattern. It provides a centre-piece for the table. The mood of intimacy and enjoyment is enhanced by the play of candlelight, the scattered fruit and napkin rings that draw on floral or abstract designs.
The Constellation runner suggests a river of leaves printed in gold that flows the length of the table. As Christmas is a season of fruits, dessert and chocolate, a bowl of fruit dominates the setting. Napkins are in linen – a natural but luxurious fabric – in colours that range from natural to indigo and yellow. Napkin rings - a speciality of Shades of India - can be carefully arranged to create surprise as guests gather for a dinner.
Shades of India believes that the table is an opportunity for creativity. Glass and cutlery can be enhanced by elements of nature – flowers, fruit, wild grasses – and by intimate lighting. In this universe, creative table runners, napkins and napkin rings are small works of art that add surprise and distinction.
