Cheerful colors, spring patterns, and delicious food make the perfect setting for Easter celebrations. Adorn your table with spring tableware accompanied by a bunch of seasonal, fresh flowers.
Play of colors
Arabia's popular KoKo tableware collection celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, with the addition of three lively colors. The reintroduced lime was originally launched in 2005, whereas blueberry milk and cantaloupe are brand new hues. From the outset, the idea behind KoKo has been a relaxed ensemble: the new colors, too, are designed to fit in with other tableware. Bold shades will brighten up the Easter table and spring dining; this versatile dinnerware includes options for both breakfast and dinner.
Spice things up with a tablecloth
An eye-catching tablecloth is the easiest way to create an extraordinary table setting. Marimekko's summery Kasvio tablecloth is inspired by pictures from old botany books and traditional summer-residence garden plants. The Kasvio tablecloth measures 140 x 280 cm and is made of cotton. The beautiful green and lilac pattern is designed by Lotta Maija, a graphic designer from Helsinki.
A summer update for candleholders
The candlelight season continues throughout the year, but now is the time to switch to lighter summer candleholders. With their glowing amber, pink and yellow shades, rejuvenating their nostalgic design, Flare candleholders by Hay will provide atmosphere at the Easter table. These slender candleholders are made of durable borosilicate glass. Each candle holder is 11 cm in diameter and 7.5 cm in height.
A cheerful touch of handicraft
This spring, Ferm Living is launching its new Flow tableware, which is full of good cheer and natural ambience. The porcelain tableware has been given a semi-matt glazing to emphasize its charming imperfection and provide a hand-crafted feel. Mainly consisting of plates and bowls, the collection is perfect for relaxed table setting, as well as for storing small items and creating arrangements of various kinds.
A modern Easter tradition
Artek's heart-warming Easter Witch and Easter Dog vases are part of its FIN/JPN Friendship Collection designed by the Finnish-Korean designer duo, COMPANY. The vases are perfect for purely decorative use or displaying spring willow twigs and flowers as part of a table setting. Made from matt-glazed pottery, the vases reflect Finnish Easter traditions. It would make a delightful custom to take these charmingly naive Easter vases out each year as the spring festival approaches.
Beautiful and practical
Even everyday details can be beautiful. Marble Groove trivets by Muuto add the finishing touch, including a little marble luxury to table settings. Water carafes or candleholders, as well as hot pots and pans, can be set down on the trivets. There’s no need to clear away these fascinatingly detailed and luxurious trivets after dining: they are a visual treat as part of table-top displays. The trivets come in two sizes and three colors: white, brown and green marble.
The final touch
Classic cloth napkins take table settings to a new level. Napkins by The Organic Company are made of machine-washable organic cotton and adorned with a subtle herringbone pattern. Thanks to their hanging loops, they can also be used as hand towels for convenient, alternative use outside mealtimes. In addition, cutlery can be slid through the loops as part of a table setting. The towels are 40 x 50 cm in size and come in four colors.
