Alexander Skarsgard Eats at Gemma

Get the Look: Alexander Skarsgard's Casual Cafe Table

Eric Northman easily trumps Bill Compton in the sexy department in this season of True Blood, and even out of character, the tall Swedish actor is still a sight to behold. Yesterday, he took in an al fresco lunch with a friend at Gemma, an Italian brasserie next to the Bowery Hotel in New York. The restaurant's interiors hold a rustic charm, with a copper-covered bar, farm-style tables, and oversized, wooden chandeliers. The sidewalk seating, seen here, reflects the interior's focus on rustic comfort.

This style is perfect for breaking up the look of a more industrial-oriented décor scheme and is also a good choice for modern interiors in need of some warmth. Here's how to get the look for yourself.

Use a mix of chairs for your table arrangement, but keep the look collected with a cohesive design feature. This element could be found in the chairs' color or it could be their shape. The chairs at Alexander Skarsgard's table have the same curved back and rustic look.

For your tableware, keep the look simple, spare, and comfort oriented. I'd recommend white, unadorned tableware and thoughtful touches, like salt cellars and bottles of fresh water with lemon or cucumber slices. As for the linens, I found a pretty option in the ShopStyle widget below, but here's a cheap and easy tip: check at Ikea. You'll find a close match to the napkins used at Gemma in the Tekka Dish Towel (79 cents each). The towels have a substantial feel to them and the French-inspired red stripe is very rustic chic.
