Embracing the summer with open arms, we’re looking to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Whether we’re nestled under shady trees during a garden party or out on the patio for a casual family dinner, there’s something extra special about gathering with loved ones in such a naturally beautiful space.
It’s part of why we’ve spent so much time designing and styling tablescapes that reflect the beauty of our surroundings. With light textiles, woven textures, and summery prints, we’re making space for airy, playful layers and subtle details. No matter the occasion, we’re showing you two of our favorite looks for some summer design inspiration!

On an outdoor tablescape (or any tablescape, for that matter), there is nothing better than fresh greenery. We’ve added flowers to a straightforward concrete vase, which gives a refreshing contrast to woven chairs and placemats.
We’ve also incorporated a few taper candles into the table. They give a really intimate feel to an otherwise simple setting!
Pairing woven materials with traditional, simple serveware allows the texture to truly shine. We’ve added layers of natural woven materials to this look, which feels playful and organic — perfect for an afternoon on the patio.
Mixing material, pattern, and scale is a playful way to bring your tablescape to life. We paired brass-finished flatware with woven placemats and a wood pedestal to create an approachable but thoughtful feel.
And, is there anything more charming than a checkered textile? We love the way this tablecloth feels like an elevated picnic!
With exaggerated round feet, the Bronx Cake Stand has a playful, modern design that complements traditional detail. Bringing overstated shapes to the table is such a beautiful (and effective) way to create interest and scale.
Nice styling and interesting ideas!
