Instyle 2011 Q&A

“Q: Using disposable plates and napkins in the summer is convenient – but are there any that look remotely chic?”

“A: Why, we wonder, did it take so long for an elegant paper plate to come our way? Wasara’s single-use plates and cups, designed in Japan and made of biodegradable sugarcane fibers, bamboo, and reed pulp, will elevate the presentation at any barbecue. And these fabulous disposable napkins made of cotton fibers come on a perforated roll – in 22 eye-popping colors.”

“Q: I’m finally ready to invest in some great bedding. Any suggestions?”

“A: It’s hard to beat the elegance and versatility of an all-white bed, but you don’t want it to be bland either. So first, look for high-quality snowy sheets, like Pottery Barn’s 700-thread-count cotton set, an excellent value starting at $199 ( Then, introduce a bit of seasonal color with patterned pillow cases or a soft throw at the foot of the bed that you can swap out on a whim.”

“Q: What’s a more updated alternative to a traditional candelabra for my dining table?”

“A: Forget the old school Liberace centerpiece. You can add drama to your next dinner party with all kinds of creative new candleholders, exotic designs to slick silvery vessels. If the size of your table permits, display your favorite choice in multiples for extra impact and striking symmetry.”
