Hoping all who celebrated had a very Merry Christmas! This year I was delighted to collaborate with The Ark Elements for my Christmas Eve table.
Founder Kate Holt and her team carefully cull their collection from talented artists and craftspeople around the world. I adore their mission and aesthetic and was honored to feature products I chose from their site (and carry on Q Worthy). I started with the beautiful Royal Iznik Tablecloth in blue, a pattern inspired by the famous ceramic tiles of the Ottoman Empire, produced on a hand spun cotton and linen blend in India by D’Ascoli.
These enchanting salad and dinner Amethyst Daisy plates are hand painted in Italy by the celebrated mother and daughter team at Laboratorio Paravicini, a long time favorite. I especially adore this colorway for the holidays and throughout the year but they are also available in Verde, a delightful green and amber.
Friends Clara Riera and Maite López-Fonta are the talented duo behind the Barcelona based Los Vasos de Agua Clara. All of their glassware is individually hand painted and I loved how this charming set of Jalisco glasses features a different pattern on each glass.
With so much pattern, I decided on a solid napkin to anchor the scheme. Handmade in Milan of the highest quality linen, these Once Milano Rolled Edge napkins feature a contrasting rolled edge that lends a subtle yet sophisticated touch. Find them on Q Worthy in a rainbow of delicious hues.
And I sported the Prudence dress, from the Quintessence x D’Ascoli Stylish Traveler collection, which, in a happy coincidence, coordinated perfectly with the table!
