A couple of months into my blogging venture I ran across the term “inspiration board”. Honestly I didn’t have a clue what that was, as I was just reading the term and not seeing an example. Thankfully, Google led to me a myriad of stellar boards. I tried my hand at putting together a few and saved plenty. Lo an behold, then came Pinterest and the rest as they say is history.
Even after grasping the concept, my thinking was to try to duplicate the board. Then I realized that it is just what the name implies, “Inspiration”. Once assembled these boards give you a visual interpretation of your idea. Better yet, how it would feel, once brought to fruition. I’ve used them for styling parties, planning buffet tables, and tablescapes with great success.
Recently, I put together an inspiration board using one of the dining tables from Modani Modern Furniture. I had carte blanch and my ideas were free to roam. I’ve always had an affinity for sleek lines with a minimalist feel. Items that make a statement without being fussy or overdone are the ones I‘m most satisfied with. I love sparkle and dare I say “bling” and this is the season for it so I‘ve included it here. One of the most important elements when I’m designing a tabletop is the feeling that it conveys. If I’m not feeling it, it’s not happening.
This board is inspired by Modani’s Limek Table . The tabletop is tempered glass and the legs are stainless steel. With its modest design, it allows for a full tablescape or shines brilliantly with a simple centerpiece.
I’ve paired the table with the Celeste Chair. The legs bear a crisscross design as does the seat cushion and back of the chair. It is the perfect accompaniment to the Limek Table.
I’ve also included the following tabletop items for a festive holiday look.
Bellini Sara SRL Red Crest Dinner Ware – Horchow
Corsica Stainless Steel Flatware – Horchow
Metallic Baroque Chargers – Horchow
Napkin Ring – Kim Seybert
Metallic Lace Table Runner – Chilewich via All Modern
Bethany Lowe Ivory Bauble Trees – Horchow

I’ve tagged my dear friend Alycia at Tablescapes at Table Twenty-One so that she may share her Modani inspiration with you. This lady has serious decorating skills and even teaches tablescaping. How cool is that!
