The dining table has gotta be the piece of furniture that gets neglected the most when it comes to decorating. This post is going to inspire you to deck out this zone of your home, though, and there’s a competition thrown in for good measure.
The Melbourne brand set to reinvent your dining room is Charlie and Fenton. You may have come across this local label before (they’ve been around since 2013), but you’ve definitely not see their stunning new range of tablecloths and tea towels.
The new collection from the dynamic duo behind the biz, Isabella and Jannah, is nothing short of extraordinary. Called Urban Jungle, it’s inspired by what it looks and feels like to live, love and entertain in Melbourne. And as a recent Melbournian myself (I moved down last year), I’m absolutely loving the story behind these new table linens and tea towels.
“We have specifically designed these wares to celebrate colour, quirk and nostalgia in the Australian home,” the girls tell me, adding that they believe entertaining should be both exciting and fun.
“For a short while each day, the dining table can become an uninterrupted oasis of serenity – and good times for family and friends”.
This new Urban Jungle range has been entirely designed and hand painted by Isabella and Jannah in their Fitzroy studio, utilising the skills of an amazing local digital printer who sourced supremely luxurious Belgian linens for print.
“Both the cloth and print quality are second to none,” the ladies tell me, going on to explain that the entire aim of Charlie and Fenton is to design wares that have a real personality and sense of play about them.
“We believe our new Urban Jungle collection has achieved just that!”.
You know what ladies? I do too! Not only do the different varieties bring a sense of visual punch to a dining room and kitchen, but I love that these have been created with a local market in mind. Better still, there are both sophisticated designs (like the marble pattern) and more playful ones (like snakes and ladders), so both kids and adults can find something to love about this release.
The ladies also called in the divine skills of photographer Cloe Smithett and stylist Tennille Joy to shoot the photos you see in this post, and I reckon every Creative involved in the process has nailed it!
The new Urban Jungle range is available on the Charlie and Fenton website right now! But if you want to get your hands on some of it sooner, see below for details of TLC’s exciting competition 🙂
