An elegant Japanese-inspired table setting by Tracey Strange
HERE’S HOW: It’s impossible not to equate a Japanese table with pared-back style; a desire for clarity is so much part of the culture. Natural materials, minimal pattern and objects so tactile-looking they demand to be picked up go with the territory. Restrict colour and keep shapes simple: a place for everything and everything in its place.
