Assouline

Creative Tables

$79.00

The art of table decoration enters the unexpected with Rose Fournier’s original designs. The third generation in a family of Swiss-French transformative decorators, Fournier has a knack for fun, creative entertaining without the fuss of endless shopping. The whimsical settings in Creative Tables forgo expensive tableware and accessories in favour of elements and ingredients already found in the typical home. Enjoy the charm of a center piece created with a book by Voltaire, discover the versatility of various types of pasta as an artful replacement for flowers, and step onto the set of an Audrey Hepburn movie adorned with classic pearls and red roses. Each scene is so radically different from the one before, it’s easy to forget they were all created in the same room with the very same set of all-white dishware—and of course, the menu always complements the decor. With photography highlighting the inventive details of each setting, the magic tricks of Creative Tables will motivate readers to try Fournier’s chic approach for their next soirée.

9.37 x 11.2 in | 132 pages | 170 illustrations | spiral bound hardcover

Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet—the traditional technique of handmade covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of a haute couture atelier.
