Michael Hampton at Baker furniture 'tabletop'

Last night I attended a fun event at the Baker Furniture showroom here in Georgetown where 4 designers worked their magic to get everyone into the holiday spirit by decorating tabletops.
My favorite table design was by my good friend designer Michael Hampton I'm pleased to report! Michael's interesting modern table focused on a new china pattern from Bernardaud in collaboration with Prune Nourry et JR.
The best thing about this china pattern isn't seen at first sight, the backside features the rear of the two hands! Learn more about his interesting tablesetting at his blog.
The fun part of attending such events, other than the chance to catch up with friends, is the chance to checkout the beautiful showroom. I loved this fun new chandelier called Syro.
 Another beautiful table was decorated by local designer Patrick Brian Jones.
Vintage crystal and china mesh seamlessly with new atop sparkling placemats. While I prefer a proper tablecloth it would hide the beautiful Baker furniture and that does rather defeat the point!
Events director and boutique owner Timothy Albrecht used a number of beautiful items from his store, Consider it Done, to decorate his own table. He was also kind enough to lend items to the other designers!
I love the modern brass utensils and gold and white is always classic.
 See anything to inspire your own holiday dinner table?
Many thanks to Baker Furniture for hosting the event and the fun evening!

Looks like a fun evening with much inspiration! Did local Thomas Pheasant do a tabletop?

Those plates are rather compelling... like they are asking for food!

I do love designer tables... they do them all the time in NYC and they are always inspiring. Love that odd chandelier!

How I miss Georgetown. I used to spend a lot of time there in the 1960s, when it was filled with antique stores!
