Tablescape at Chatham home

“Cape Cod Christmas” is the idea Masterson had in mind when designing this cozy-meets-formal tablescape. The woven coffee table, custom upholstered swivel chairs—in navy Lee Industries linen with a white-striped skirt—and rope Palecek side table help establish the coastal, nautical vibe, playing off the marshland and ocean just beyond this Chatham home. Red-patterned table runners and napkins subtly provide a warm, holiday feel—and complement the lobster meal. To Masterson, layering is key, and the various patterns, colors and textures here add dimension and interest. Another lovely floral arrangement by Blossoms is the cherry on top of this simple yet sophisticated setup.
