For nearly each vacation that rolls round, we flip to occasion designer David Stark for table-setting inspiration (see, for proof: a DIY Scandi-inspired unfold to an architectural tablescape for autumn). Fortunately, David now has a brand new e book with occasion producer Jane Schulak and author Kathleen Hackett—On the Artisan’s Desk, simply out—and it’s filled with tabletop inspiration for each event, mixing “historic desk wares from the world’s most interesting design museums with items by a world array of latest artisans who reinterpret conventional crafts and kinds.”
We’re intrigued by the “Forbidden Fruit” desk settings particularly; be part of us for a glance.
