The Tablescape Project

graphics 1

Last year, we took one sofa in our retail store and asked each of the J Banks Designers to style the sofa and surrounding space utilizing pillows, lamps and accessories.  Each Designer had the ability to create a space that not only showed their “of-the-moment” loves from our retail store, but also demonstrated how a design client can easily change a space by adding a few new elements.

This time, we will ask each Designer to style a tablescape on round, glass table from our retail store. We are giving them the freedom to create anything they want; from a table setting for entertaining to a beautiful design vignette-the sky is the limit!

Each week we will feature one Designer and showcase how they have chosen to style a table. The end result will show how accessories can change the overall ambiance of a room.

Sharon Cleland was the first Designer to tackle this project and you will see her creativity through a few Q&A’s on her selections and inspirations.

JB: What is your favorite item or items in the vignette/tablescape? Why?

Sharon: The cow hide used as a table covering. I love how it adds a bit of life to the vignette, while giving you a nice rich feeling to the table.

JB: Tell us a little bit about your color choices & where your inspiration came from. 

Sharon: I love neutrals, silver and textures and since my trip to South Africa have been obsessed with animal skins which work superbly in both traditional and more contemporary vignettes.

JB: What advice can you give for your clients about dressing a table?

Sharon: In order to make a statement, go bold! Create varying heights, shapes and textures while at the same time creating continuity in finishes. In this case the silver, glass and horn.
