Choose beaded place mats or napkins for their diverse range of colours and flavour. Say goodbye to traditional silver flatware and splurge on gold-plated cutlery with artistic and stylish designs. If you’re home or space is decorated with light or neutral colours, then the table setting is where you can add dimension with dark hues such as indigo, purple, fuchsia, and emerald green.
Another big hit for 2016? Naturally carved and finished kitchen and dining tables. Any type of dinnerware from modern, to china, asian, or contemporary matches with a natural solid pine or oak table.
