Set With Style
At the moment I'm a bit swamped with new book releases. But quickly I want to mention that one of the titles we've been anticipating, Set with Style, is out in stores. As expected, the book includes history of dining etiquette and a good resource section. True to form, Caroline Clifton Mogg brings together a diverse crew to share advise -- John Saladino, Reed Krakoff of Coach, and Glen Senk and Keith Johnson of Anthropologie, just to name a few. Nice surprises are tables set by Carolyn Quartermaine, Nathan Turner, and so many other tastemakers.
Shown top are images from textile designer Quartermaine's home in the French hills, above Cannes. Below, the book's cover is a detail shot of one of Turner's festive tables.
