Setting the Table with Style

Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two, an extravagant celebratory party or even just a midweek family supper, the enjoyment of sitting down to eat starts well before the food is served.

The choice of cutlery, plates and drink-ware sets the tone for the whole experience and table setting ideas such as candle holders, vases and centrepieces also help to create an elegant, relaxed or dramatic style.

From classical Scandinavian design to cutting edge modernity, Georg Jensen offers something that will bring your table to life and highlight the meal that follows.

Inspired by the striking functionalist pieces created by Sigvard Bernadotte in the 1930s, the namesake Bernadotte collection brings a timeless elegance to the table top with signature grooves enhancing everything from knives, forks and spoons to serving plates and of course the iconic thermos jug. 

Meanwhile both Henning Koppel’s famous New York collection or the clean lines of the minimal Copenhagen set bring a more contemporary but equally eye-catching tone to mealtimes with cutlery that is as beautiful to handle as it is to look at.

Naturally, the centre of the table is as important as the individual place settings, especially with the modern trend of shared dishes and family-style servings.

Presenting food in Bloom’s sculptural bowls adds a sense of drama to even the simplest of meals and Georg Jensen’s much-loved Cobra collection provides unusual plates, dishes and glasses from which to eat.

 

Finally, finish off the table with a flourish:  Cobra candlesticks add a touch of stylish hygge and a bunch of flowers in a stainless steel or glass Cafu vase makes the perfect centrepiece, whatever the dining occasion.
