The Center of the Table
Rebecca Moses: What I'm trying to do today is introduce the world of arts older style which is really not just about products, it's about a philosophy, it's about a world life. And I grew up in a world of a style, a world of fashion and I also grew up in a very, very warm traditional home in America in New Jersey where life was around the table. And, then I move 17 years ago, across the ocean to the most wonderful country called Italy. And Italy is also all about the table being the center of the home.
So I went from one table to another table, but along the way I brought my traditions there and I took a lot of new traditions from their back home. So we are going to start by the center of the table which I consider the stage, okay, that is the place where all eyes will be upon, okay. And some of the new products that we have here, this is a -- I use a lot of wicker in the collection and banana leaf and I do it with a white stand. Now this is a fabulous products because its a little tray with three ceramic containers inside it and these containers you could use for a million things, think versatility when you buy for your table, okay.
You could use this for wardrobes, fill it with nuts and olives, you could put breadsticks in here. I use this as a decorative and I put a little metal frog inside, you see here, this is a little frog that you can cut the flowers down and just stick them in and I even added a little basil and what's great about these frogs is that you don't have to spend lots and lots of money on flowers, you can use just a few flowers and they stand up nice so you don't have to fill it in too much and the basil it really adds the aroma and the theme and I'm using some lemons.
One of the great decorative elements in the center of the table is your food. You know, you don't have to buy a $50, $75 center piece because if you want to celebrate your table everyday you got to figure out new ways of doing that.
So sometimes the actual food like lemons, oranges, little kumquats, things like that are beautiful mixed in with some herbs maybe some potted herbs, like potted basil, potted rosemary, they are beautiful fragrances, and you know, when you create style just like your own personal style where we put perfumes on, also the fragrances at the table are very important enhancer for your guest.
So we have our lemons, which are really beautiful with these yellow roses and a little bit of basil and then we have these lanterns that are so fun and you can put candles in them and we are going to anchor them. So I'm going to spread out the center of stage. It's really pretty at night; I love candles on the table in the evening even when it's my husband and my children at home. Because my children they look forward to sitting at the table with the adults and they like it and they feel proud and this so important that we instill that, the small details are the details that people really, truly remember.
