Last Christmas, Rustan’s showcased gorgeous holiday vignettes in the home section of its department stores, which surely provided home décor inspiration for those who seek it.
Each holiday table featured a unique theme, far from the typical red and green color combination. The festive spaces feature cutleries and décor from the store’s best home brands, each table complete with formal settings that will entice customers to entertain friends and family in the comforts of their own homes.
Kathy Yap-Huang‘s modern yet warm and festive table set up
For this luxury campaign, Rustan’s tapped lifestyle figures to curate the tablescapes with a corresponding style of their choice. Kathy Yap-Huang opted for a contemporary look, highlighting unconventional color combination gold and black in her holiday table. “When I saw the Bernardaud plates with a gold rim and almost snowflake pattern, I knew that this is what I wanted to build my table around,” she says. “Black and gold is not always what comes to mind when we think of the holidays, but it can be just as festive as red and green.” Yap-Huang had also used Bernardaud cups and saucers with bird and butterfly patterns to add vibrancy. She couldn’t resist but to take off ornaments from the Christmas tree and add them to the table “for an interesting focal point.” She adds, “Different twigs, pine cones and Christmas balls added some depth and texture.”
Country Luxe” by Diner Le Service (Gold and Crystal Table Setting)
In a rustic manner, Maricar Lopez Tiangco assembles a Country Luxe vignette using trinkets and décor items from Rustan’s Flower Shop. “A mix of wooden vessels and shimmering details in rose gold, champagne, white, and blue allows this living room to evoke the calmness of the season—festive, yet not overbearing,” she says. She calls it her “little Christmas paradise in the country.”
Finally, design experts Nonette and Johnny Hubilla of the Hubilla Design Group create an elegant gold and crystal holiday table setting that they’ve dubbed “Diner Le Service.” The classic look was created with Lalique vases, Christofle flatware and tableware. Simple, but with a gilded touch, the tablescape features the use of linens with Christmas accessories.
