design inspiration: the family table

The calm before the storm...

The chairs have been polished. The table is ready to be set. The room is still.

Family and friends are on their way, bringing with them stories and laughter and compliments to the cook. Dishes will be passed, each bite savored. Anyone for seconds? Growling tummies are long forgotten. With glad smiles on their faces and maybe a few top buttons undone, all sit contentedly around the table.

But for now, all is quiet.

A lovely table. Loved ones. Food. It can't get any better than that!
