I love Lucite!

When I die I want to be buried with this:

The Louis Ghost chair by Philippe Starck for furniture icon, Kartell. I love this chair. I love all Lucite chairs. I find them so inspiring. They amp up the luciousness of almost any tablescape. Like this:

Umm, hello! I am not usually one for a banquet table design but look how delicious this is! For me the simplicity of the tablescape is key. I am always saying, "levels, levels, levels!" It's like a broken record, I know. Buuuut, look how fantastic a basically simple design can become. I think my favorite aspect here is the light, airy feeling I'm getting looking at this. The peach with the pop of turquoise....heaven. And again, hello gorgeous chairs. No covers, no ties, no fuss!

Then again, I do love a bit of drama. Like this:

Say whaaa?! Here again, clean lines, no clutter and a pop of bold color. I die! I think if I were to do something like this, I'd really want the table number to pop, but not over power the table. I've also really been into the idea of the " clear trays with glass beads" combo for quite some time. This is a perfect example of what I mean. Hello Hostesses! This is sort of what I'm always blathering on about.
