We can always think of a reason to celebrate, but we didn't have to look far today. We're introducing a new brand at Table + Dine and we're pretty excited about it. Get ready to absolutely fall in love with Shiraleah (she-ra-lay-ah), because as you can see, this intro shines with fashion and design for your table and home.
We know that stainless steel barware and table accessories are nothing new, but we think this new take on mixing metals and textures down to the brass knotted handles, is just divine. The hammered finish gives these pieces a classy and timeless appeal and is the perfect combination of cool and warm. It's no wonder they've named this collection Eternity. This look is definitely here to stay.
Then there's our copper weather-beaten, aged (and super shiny) Cantina Collection to serve the hummus, olives, dolmas and pita bread at your next Mediterranean feast. Perfect, right? It's a rough-luxe style that never looked better. You've heard it before and you will hear it again; copper is the new black when it comes to home decor, so let's have some fun with it!
We've been saving this absolutely GORGEOUS crostini station from heirloom LA’s tasting kitchen to share on just the right occasion. And, we're pretty sure this is it because picture this appetizer feast in a hammered copper serving piece or an oversized tray. This combination of fruits, vegetables, cheeses (oh, that blue), nuts, olives, homemade spreads, edible flowers, et al, is a true work of art. Wouldn't you know, the lead came from Bri Emery of Design Love Fest, who knows all the best places to go in DTLA. Obviously. We actually made our own version of this beauty for Allie's 30th surprise birthday party and...It. Was. Perfect. More to follow on Allie's celebration and how we made our crostini station "to go" version.
Speaking of appetizers and serving them, who doesn't love the texture and cool touch of Italian marble? The new Piedmont collection is a staple for at home entertaining with pieces to serve appetizers, antipasto platters and kitchen tools to grind up your favorite spices. We'll admit it, we just have a thing for gray marble in any shape or size.
Strike gold. When it comes to dressing up your table, we promise gold feathered serveware will make a real statement at your next cocktail or dinner party. We like to add cheeky bold prints and a wooden tray or two. It gives the felling of architectural design, with a modern and sophisticated look. #amiright?
Can we just talk about the color in the Morocco collection for a minute (or hour)? We could honestly do a happy dance with this pastiche of patterns in vibrant colors. Mix and match these turquoise, orange, navy and lime colors and patterns of this collection to dress a fun, casual, yet exotic Moroccan flavored table. We add fun glassware, crisp linens, fresh, but simple flowers and get just a little more giddy as our vision comes alive. Happens every time. Summer isn't over and we're determined to play out our al fresco dinners until the very end with friends around and wine in hand.
We hope you'll enjoy Shiraleah and it's flexibility to work in your home in so many ways as much as we do.
