African union – December 2009

For the festive table, décor editor Andrew Mackenzie was inspired by the Union Jack, which was one of the hot rends at this year’s Maison & Objet show in Paris. The combination of ethnic beadwork and the Union Jack creates a uniquely South African Look.

Red champagne glasses echo the red in the place mats and contrast with the crisp white tablecloth. A large glass vase, from Atomic Orchid, filled with berries and white spray-painted branches hung with open baubles filled with red roses, creates a striking centerpiece. Silver objets lend an eclectic air, while beaded Kenyan bracelets, from Seringa Living Gallery, used as napkin holders, provide an African element.
