Fête x Florette

Architectural Digest (UAE) - - Art Of Dining Escape -

Swathes of strik­ing gold palm leaves and pam­pas grass dis­played among a har­mo­nious ar­ray of black can­dles and vases were the high­light of Anne Mul­vi­hill’s Dubai-in­spired ta­ble de­sign. Stretch­ing across the side of the venue, the dis­play was def­i­nitely hard to miss. “The aim was to add the ‘bling’ fac­tor with the rich, gold tones to give the de­sign a Dubai touch,” Mul­vi­hill says. “But we also wanted some­thing that was clas­sic be­cause that’s our own per­sonal style.” “The main cen­tre­pieces com­prised palm leaves to give the dis­play a beachy aes­thetic,” she adds. “We wanted some­thing el­e­gant, so­phis­ti­cated and clas­sic, while also draw­ing a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from art deco de­signs.” Dream din­ner guest? Barack Obama, he’s en­ter­tain­ing, knowl­edge­able and witty, I think it would be fun.
