Be Inspired No. 5 - Tailored Skirted Tables and Savile Row

Image Unknown

Savile Row is a street in central London that is known for its tailors' shops that produce high end custom made clothing. Most people believe the term bespoke originated on Savile Row. In the fashion world, the word bespoke is used for men's clothing that has been custom made for a particular client. Haute Couture is the term used when referring to women's clothing custom made.

When it comes to skirted tables for the home, I prefer a "Savile Row tailor's touch". Fitted to the table it is covering-creating clean lines, hemmed to perfection-not bustled on the floor, a touch of panache whether in the fabric or the trim or contrast banding, and classic in its styling.

The wonderful design factor of a tailored skirted table is that you can have it constructed in any size or shape to suit limitations for a specific space.

A tailored skirted table adds softness to a room, playing up its surroundings. So be inspired to consider this element in a room in your home. It is a great companion to an elegant staircase, a unique occasional chair, a pair of stunning lamps, a reclaimed barn wood floor, a dramatic headboard, a sleek dining table, or that new addition to your art collection.
