Instead of sticking to a strict palette of rich Fall shades this Thanksgiving, why not add instant glam with some metallic accents? Your tablescapes will truly pop when you pair those deep burgundies with a glowing gold, or a deep purple with a stark silver. Here are just a few ways to add the metallic look to your Thanksgiving tablescape.
Top on my Thanksgiving tablescape wish list is the Fornasetti Theme & Variations Decorative Plate #228 ($305, middle row, middle). The glamorous bejeweled variation of Italian soprano, classic beauty, and Fornasetti muse Lina Cavalieri is even more intriguing than many of his other images. It may be the nose ring that gives this particular image its unique charm. Imagine it used as a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving gathering.
Another true find is a recently added item to Design Within Reach's inventory — the
Alma Allen Bronze Candleholder ($325, middle row, right). Limited to a series of 250, it's hand cast from solid bronze by Joshua Tree designer Alma Allen. No two pieces are exactly alike, but you can be assured that this is an heirloom piece. (And if you're curious about this designer, I featured his work here, as well as his modern green home.
I'm also adoring the look of the Indian Brass Resting Deer Statue ($550, bottom row, middle). With intricate detailing on its horns, nose, neck and saddle blanket, this would make a fascinating addition to an entry table or centerpiece arrangement. Keep the Indian theme going with marigold floral arrangements and batiked napkins. And if you're looking for a more affordable version of this deer, you can find them on Etsy or at flea markets for a much more reasonable price point.
