1 Pretty plaid

Rustic meets refined in this dramatic display. Basic black jute is overlaid with a swath of classic black and red tartan fabric – matched by a plaid-patterned plate – that’s just right for a festive feast, be it Christmas or Hogmanay. Adding a sense of light and movement to the moody scene, a set of mixed vintage-look flatware from Pottery Barn plays well with the Wedgwood basalt charger and bowl as well as the small black jug. The finishing touch is a sweet sprig of rosemary that stands in for a spray of heather.

2 Silver and navy

Buying new dinnerware is the perfect indulgence for this year’s holiday meal, and we can’t think of a prettier pick than this indigo and pearl Marchesa china. Layer it on top of Kate Spade New York silver-rimmed plates for a lighter feel and add navy-handled flatware to balance the look. An extra-special touch? We referenced the distinctive china pattern in the table covering by placing a length of sheer Anna French lace over denim blue table linen, resulting in a polished tablesetting that’s classic yet contemporary.

3 Gorgeous gold

Rococo patroness Madame de Pompadour, with her considerable taste and verve, may have set such a table were she celebrating Christmas today. Mismatched antique dishes lavished with gold detailing from Toronto’s Cynthia Findlay Antiques are brought straight into the 21st century with slick contemporary gold flatware, while a simple linen napkin keeps the look from going over the top. And did you notice? The Kelly Wearstler fabric that covers the table is faux python – we think Madame would be pleased!

4 Sophisticated silver

The patina of silver and the sparkle of crystal highlight the white Jasper Conran plates with delightful scalloped edges in this modern setting. It’s a sophisticated aesthetic with just a touch of whimsy found in the delicate chinoiserie-patterned plate, the antique silver-plated pheasant that stands at attention and the small bowl of shiny ornaments that speaks to the holiday spirit. A handwritten place card in a petite silver tray and a hint of fresh greenery are all that’s required to complete this festive look.
