Long gone are the days of saving your best dinnerware and tabletop accessories for special occasions. Instead, the coveted tablescape has undoubtedly become a welcome favourite for even the smallest and most intimate of festivities, bringing with it inspiring collections of mix-and-matched plates, unexpected coloured and patterned napkins and table-ready trinkets.
If you’re looking for new ways to up your table game this party season, let us introduce you to the Australian-founded tableware brand Table Collectiv. The newly-launched local label is changing the game, offering up stylish, chic and elevated dinnerware to satisfy your inner hostess.
“I grew up in an entertainer’s family, my mum was always entertaining,” explains founder Sahar Giordano. “The whole notion behind the brand is about feeling. For me, when I set a table I know that it will be filled with friends, laughter, good times and great food, so Table Collectiv is an extension of that, setting the mood for an experience.”
If our Instagram feeds are anything to go by, tablescapes can be as imaginative and daring as possible, which is why Table Collectiv’s pieces can be both bought individually to mix-and-match or as a collection that ties each piece together. “Each piece complements the next,” adds Giordano.
The brand offers everything from scalloped-edge, embroidered linen placemats to velvet napkin bows and accompanying plates, with every detail created to inspire and bring people together.
Below, explore some of our favourite collections from the brand.
Giving new meaning to the phrase Pretty In Pink, Table Collectiv’s Colour Me Pink collection is filled with “visions of bubblegum, cotton candy and blossoms”, a perfect addition to your next girl’s night.
Adding a sophisticated yet subtle edge to a dinnerware classic, the Oh So Chic collection combines soft blues and whites with a punch of navy.
For the truly decadent party, turn to Table Collectiv’s Luxe Noir collection—which is exactly how it sounds, giving a truly elegant finish to any table. Pair this with a chilled glass of Veuve Clicquot and you’ve created the most glamorous and luxurious event of the year. If you’re hosting Christmas this year, you can’t go past the Christmas Queen collection, with festive-inspired red and green tableware sure to compliment the holiday cheer. Who doesn’t love imagining their party was actually being hosted on the stunning island of Capri or amongst the cobblestoned streets of Positano? With Table Collectiv’s Limoncello collection, you’ll create that very atmosphere, and even better if paired with an Italian-inspired feast and cocktails to finish it all off.
