6mdm.jpg

With Christmas just around the corner - Maisons du monde wanted to find out how we prepare for guests at our home - which is actually a perfect timing as my mum will be here in just few days .
So i have prepared an eclectic festive dining table edit - The thing about Maisons du monde is - they have so many products and its so hard to pick just one favorite here , and in my home we are always do a Christmas in more relaxing setting - it makes our guests also relaxed and feel at home - So mixing and matching was the key element here .
Before i talk more about my Dining table Christmas edit id love to give you a few tips on how to make your home ready for “ new arrivals : :)

Getting your home ready for guests to stay and making them feel welcome starts from the moment they enter your home , make sure that your guests have a place to hang their coats and put their shoes , i also try and have a spare few pairs of slippers at the ready , we also prepare a mini guest box - that contains few beauty products like shampoo , conditioner , shower gel , hand cream and set of towels so it is one thing less your guests have to pack into their suitcases when their leave their homes to stay at yours.If you have a spare bedroom - maybe leave some space in the chest of drawers for your visitors to unpack and put their clothes away ( if they want to ) , and finally make sure tat you know if your guests are allergic to anything or their food preferences and stock up on their favorites.

This year we are aiming for more rustic and slightly relaxed dining experience but still festive - so if you would like to get the look of my dining table set up , and even if you don’t have a dedicated dining space you can create one however big or small in your living room like i did.
so lets get started shall we ?


1- the Table
I made the table myself , but Maisons Du Monde have got you covered - here are 2 of my favorite industrial inspired options that would go well in your small dining spot or a dining room

Archibald Solid mango wood and metal dining table W 170cm
If you have space for it this piece is just perfect solid mango wood top and those beautiful castors on the bottom

Edison Black Metal Adjustable Round Dining Table Bistro D 110 cm
If space is an issue here then this round industrial number is for you , i just love the crank handle that can be used to adjust the height of your table - now that is clever design and if you have a disabled family member very handy especially for a wheelchair to fit comfortably

2 - The Chairs
I love the mismatched look where literally anything goes for a truly eclectic look . You can pair industrial inspired furniture with more classic chairs as well so bellow i put few of my favorites

Austerlitz -Leather Industrial Chair in Brown
(as pictured below and in my home )
A dining chair, a desk chair , a side chair ? - this is by far the most eyecatching chair i seen - it will soon be living in an attic room i be re doing to become my office , but this Christmas its going to be our dining chair

Picpus - Camel calfskin and metal chair
I love the metal mesh design complete with a leather seat cushion for extra comfort - in my opinion this little number is a perfect companion - and looks like it came straight from the factory :)

3 - On the table
Why not having a little fun with mixing and matching as well ?
for my table set up i have opted for a pop of blue and a touch of white and gold that goes so well with natural wood , tan and greenery - To get the look here are my to go pieces


Tokyo Blue Stoneware Plate
This slightly speckled plate - is just beautiful behind words , it has a hand made look and each feels unique and well made - plates come in packs of two and a great value for money -

4 - Accessorize
Setting the mood with few accessories for me is a must - i have tried to incorporate real greenery in this photo , but i be honest with you here - moody teen managed to pinch it for her project , and i also love (faux) greenery and candles so those are something that every festive table should have to finish of the table

Oak Pine Cone Candle Holder
I love to accessorize my table with things that i can use all year around and i have fallen in love with this beautiful candle holder - they are so well made and look beautiful on the table -

Artificial Holly Branch
Holly is an ultimate Christmas greenery for me - it would look fantastic layered over the table with the pine branch or you could put it in the vase to create beautiful display -
