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.

Table­cloth, Martha’s; small metal bowl, con­crete cones, can­dle, con­crete tray (used as charger) and bowl (on top of plates), Zakkia; food­grade wooden plates, Nkuku; jugs, Mar­moset Found; black cut­lery and glass­ware, May Time Mar­ket­ing; chop­sticks and nap­kin, stylist’s own. For full de­tails, see Cred­its In­dex.
