We frequently talk about the art of the mix — from the layered bed to the mix and match dinner table. A recent luncheon at west elm headquarters in Brooklyn gave our talented visual team the chance to show their stuff and let their playful style shine…

Was there a single place setting that was identical to another? Using a wide range of patterns, colors and textures, the luncheon for close to 40 guests demonstrates the power of the mix and how it is possible to stylishly set the table for a large party without having a single pattern or style of dinnerware service for 40.

WHY IT WORKS
