Seasonal Table Setting

"SIMPLICITY, carried to an an extreme, becomes elegance." 
- Jon Franklin

 A very simple table setting I came across in NYC.
This could be good for your country house or even city loft. 
... oversize lantern compliment the abstract painting on the wall.
There are various sizes and finishes and price point of lanterns 
in the market for you to dress up your table in this season!

Just be creative!

Malaysian Kopitiam Colonial Day Furniture

"TRY A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON DIVERSITY. 
Across the country and around the world, we are all ONE." 
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Colonial day furniture @ Kopi-tiam (Cofee shop/cafe) in Malaysia. Love the marble top round table - perfect for afternoon tea or light lunch in the summer days in East Coast Hamptons, Connecticut, Florida or the Caribbeans. Those chairs are light, with or without cushion are casual chic.

Below are some images of Malaysian scenes
