When the initial concept of Christian Ladd Home was born, tabletop was one of the categories we knew must be included.
The art of setting the table regained popularity last year during the height of Covid and while we, presumably along with many others, would like to forget most things that occurred in 2020, setting the table is something that we found stuck. There is something special about a meal with family or friends gathered around a table that a little bit of thought noticeably went into creating. While we are aware that it is simply not realistic to go all out for every meal, something as simple as placing placemats creates a special touch no matter the occasion. We found this to be especially true during the holidays, while this year will likely look a bit more normal than last, we still plan to create an atmosphere just as special as we did last year to compensate for the what was lacking. The main piece to that puzzle is the tablescape.
We find ourselves using predominantly our traditional holiday china year after year so we wanted to incorporate something to mix it up a bit. The Boxwood Garden Collection was conceptualized around inspiration from historic fabrics in the interior design world. In collaboration with Fenwick Fields, a Dallas-based linens company offering hand-sewn linens, we sought to reimagine and merge these celebrated prints. By doing so, our hope was to create accessible table linens that fit seamlessly into a home’s existing interior design.
The collection comes in three colors: Rose, Sage and Espresso, all in Fenwick Fields’ classic scalloped square shapes as well as circular. Our very favorite thing about this collection is they fit seamlessly into any fall or holiday tablescape but the colors are versatile enough (and not specific to holiday) that they can be carried into spring and summer as well.
See the different shapes and colorways below, paired with some of our favorite china and coordinating table accessories.
