The countdown to Christmas has started, and the celebratory season will be here before you know it. Be prepared for this year’s entertaining and festivities with DOMO’s guide to setting the table in style.
Dress to impress
DOMO Homewares Collection
A Christmas table deserves a special touch, and tabletop accessories can be used to create eye-catching centerpieces, ambient additions or stylish ways to serve. As Christmas tables can often become crowded, choose pieces that are practical and functional as well as good looking. A champagne bucket will keep the bubbles chilling and in convenient reach; a tiered stand is ideal for serving canapés, appetizers or desserts; candlesticks add formality and atmospheric light; and a well-designed chopping board will go straight from the kitchen to the dining table.
Grange MP002 Medaillon Dining Table and Medaillon Chairs
For a long and leisurely lunch or dinner you want to be sure your guests are seated comfortably. DOMO’s collection of dining chairs range in style, size, materials and colour. Traditional dining chairs such as those by Marchetti are ideal for a classically styled Christmas; while HC28 will add a modern touch; and Grange is nothing but luxury.
A place to meet

The beauty of the dining table is that it’s a place where friends, family and colleagues come together to enjoy good food, good wine and good company. A long rectangular table is the most traditional for Christmas; gold and silver tableware will pop against Grange’s Haussman luxurious cherry-wood dining table; while red and green will complement the rustic style of Sika’s George Teak Table. An extendable dining table offers flexibility for different lunch and dinner parties, and Marchetti’s dining table can extend up to 275 centimetres to comfortably seat 10 people. If you’re entertaining outdoors, Roda’s Spinnaker Extendable Table has solid teak slats and a metal frame to endure the Australian climate and lifestyle.
Light up the room

One final ingredient for the Christmas table is ambience, which you can create with a range of DOMO’s lighting options. Choose a floor lamp, table lamp or pendant to cast light where needed and to add to the style and atmosphere of the room. Lenoir Chandelier will add drama over a formal dining table, while Ligne Roset’s Brass Bell suspended lights offer a delicate aesthetic and golden brass finish that evokes the Christmas spirit. Floor and table lamps are ideal for lighting a space without directly lighting the table.
