Tableware trends: Marble and Textured Ceramics

Saturday 26th March 2016
The environment you create for your guests is highly dependent on the styling of your reception. As a rule of thumb, we recommend sticking to the mantra ‘less is more’ when conceptualising your tableware. Make the most of subtle details and organic textures to execute the very best of 2016 design trends, where simplicity is embraced and form follows function.

Each piece on your table should have a purpose, create intrigue and a sense of careful consideration. If you have been on Instagram or flipped through the pages of any home décor periodicals, you will have noticed a plethora of inspiration in way of integrating marble and ceramics into your living aesthetic. So, we’re here to help you assimilate the trend into your wedding day.

Working with texture

There is no need to over accessorise the reception table when individual pieces themselves are so distinct. Playing around with texture is atypical of Scandinavian style and combines tonal variation, clean lines and a neutral, earthy palette. When styling a minimalist table, don’t confuse simplicity with bareness by employing decor in a cold and clinical fashion. The integration of folksy textures and wooden elements instantly creates warmth and maintains a clean, understated look. Faceted ceramic crockery placed on the table with rosewood serving boards creates an effortless elegance.

White marble

Marble looks exquisite and naturally exorbitant as the primary surface pieces of your table. Crisp white marble offers a modern luxe nuance when paired with monochromatic cotton linen and copper cutlery. Alternatively, team white marble with softwood serving bowls and garnish the table with delicate bunches of baby’s-breath to recreate a Scandi look that lies at the ‘rustic’ end of the spectrum.

Unique designs

It’s easy to develop a love for ceramics, especially the odd ones that appear misshapen and timeworn. Herein lies an opportunity for unconventional beauty to be incorporated into your table styling. Every threadbare piece tells a narrative that injects a sense of warmth to the overall aesthetic of the reception. Ceramicist April Brimer maker and creator at The Pursuits of Happiness, has a particular way of molding each cup and plate in a way which mistakes are transformed into distinguishing beauty.
