Thanksgiving Table Setting
Looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving table? The folks at Sawbridge Studios in Winnetka designed this pretty one based on foundation pieces they carry. They started with hand-forged iron candlesticks by Vermont-based artisan Stephen Bronstein, then bought the pheasant feathers at a local craft store, and wound wired grapevine around them all. They used grapevine balls from the same crafts store and laced Simon Pearce's flatware through it. Dish towels in a woodland pattern/color scheme serve as oversized napkins that allow for the long "waterfall" effect—filling up the setting where the flatware traditionally sits. The dinnerware is also by Pearce.
