The Art of the Table - Sneak Peek!

Join me at the Bilotta showroom on Thursday evening for the unveiling of The Art of the Table!  I was thrilled when Traditional Home invited me to style one of Bilotta's stunning kitchens for this event, using dinnerware, glassware, and accessories by French brands with rich design traditions: Bernardaud, Baccarat, Christofle, and Frette.  Here is a little background on these companies and a look at some of the beautiful pieces you will see on our kitchen!
This clean and classic white kitchen by Bilotta Collection is similar to the one I am styling for The Art of the Table.
Bilotta is an exceptional, family run, kitchen and bath design source with over twenty years of experience.  Bilotta's designers work with decorators, architects and homeowners to create and execute custom spaces, and can do everything, right down to the wood floors, cabinet hardware, etc.  Bespoke details are a major part of their designs, which can be viewed in their Manhattan and Westchester showrooms.
Prince Blue dinnerware by Bernardaud.

Bernardaud - which started in 1863 in Limousine, France - provided the floral, blue and white dinnerware which inspired the color palate for styling our kitchen.
Vega glass by Baccarat.

French crystal house, Baccarat, is known for their stemware and chandeliers.  Their accessories and chandeliers are beautifully displayed at their new D & D showroom.

Cruet set of four bottles by Christofle.
Christofle, the fine flatware and accessories company which originated in 1830 in France, provided the silver flatware and accessories.

Bernardaut china; Christofle flatware; Frette napkin; Kim Seybert napkin ring and place mat.
Frette is best known for exquisitely soft bed linens made of the finest cotton.  This luxury translates from sleeping to dining, with Frette napkins.

Kim Seybert brings fashion to the tabletop with her jewel like napkins, place mats and dining accessories.  Here, Kim Seybert's wooden beaded place mats and "Enamel Tile Napkin Rings" bring down the formality of the china, so that it is at home in the more casual kitchen setting.

Annette chair by Bungalow 5.
Bungalow 5 is one of my favorite sources for updated, classic affordable furniture and accessories.  Bungalow 5 generously loaned these Annette dining chairs, which we also recently installed for a client in Connecticut.

Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this such a fabulous event.  Visit The Art of the Table October 5-12 at Bilotta!
