With nearly 20 years of experience tailoring fine linens to her clients' tastes, Leontine Linens founder Jane Scott Hodges can set a party with little more than a flick of her wrist. Taking her cues from the elegant brick courtyard of a friend's New Orleans garden, she was inspired to keep things natural at this springtime affair. She created the lunchtime scene by surrounding an antique cypress table with an unexpected pairing of antique and modern Louis XVI-style chairs, and then splashing the space with lush spring blooms and rich jewel tones.
Think beyond table linens. A graphic monogram boldly embellishes the back of this Louis XVI dining chair.
