C.S. Wo displays designs for holiday entertainment
The tables at C.S. Wo are set with golden pears, pineapples, textured papers and more to showcase the possibilities available for entertaining this holiday season.
In collaboration with the visual designers at Neiman Marcus, "At Home for the Holidays" features five tables in the C.S. Wo Gallery dressed in beaded place mats, silverware and china representing traditional holiday to upscale local style.
The "Island Living" table is dressed in natural hues representing land and sea with Nativa wood platters ($195) and Atticus ceramicware the color of celadon, embellished with seashells and the gleam of a Hosta stainless-steel pitcher by Michael Aram ($250).
Contemporary "China" style is represented by Mottahedeh's five-piece Imperial Blue place setting ($350) and five-piece Blue Dragon place setting ($215) with a centerpiece of a L'Objet Dragon Plate ($800) topped with a chrysanthemum blossom afloat in a glass bowl containing water sparkling with glitter.
The display will be on view 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, at 702 S. Beretania St. Call 543-5388.
