Create this urban scandi style table setting

Heal's George Jensen Emilio Pimental Reid Scandi

For the second instalment of his masterclass in Scandi style table settings, acclaimed interior stylist Emilio Pimentel-Reid talks us through his ‘Urban Copenhagen’ Dining display.

Urban Copenhagen

“Celebrating the fun side of Denmark’s capital, these sleek Scandinavian styles pair perfectly with urban interiors. Formal but with an out-there edge, this Scandi table and dining setting is the ideal way to wow your guests.

Sparkle and shine: Henning Koppel Pitcher £275, Cobra Glass Carafe £54, Cobra Candelabra £140, Cobra Tumbler in Medium £25 (set of two), Cobra Dinner Plate £19 and Cobra Candle Holder £26 all from Georg Jensen shown with White Marble Cheese Board £75, LSA Wine Glassware from £30 and Santol Cutlery from £12, True Grace Dinner Candle £3 and Linen Napkin in Denim Blue £10.

“A Scandi institution, Georg Jensen have been crafting elegant silver for over a century. So when it came to curating this sophisticated selection, I simply had to build around their sculptural silver centrepieces such as the Henning Koppel Pitcher and Cobra Candelabra.

These modern forms are mirrored by other dinner and glassware pieces from Georg Jensen’s Cobra range. To provide accents of colour, incorporate bouquets of flowers and candles in a range of tones – I have used faux flowers from Abigail Ahern and Dinner Candles from True Grace.”

Take a seat: Lau Dining Table by Stua £1655 shown with Offcut Stool by Tom Dixon £150, Eames DKR Chair £459, Laclasica Chair by Stua £335 and Sonny P Carver Chair in Cemento Grey Wool £325.

“To emphasise the gleaming silver, white china and glassware table setting, I have paired with the Lau Dining Table by Stua – the Dark Ash finish creates a sultry contrast that evokes the dark nordic forests found throughout the region.

The use of mix and match chairs nods to the eclecticism of Scandi style; the Laclasica Chair by Stua continues the theme of dark woods; the Sonny P Carver Chair contrasts with its upholstered shell; while the iconic Eames DKW Chair is functional minimalism at its finest.”
