Gold Furniture Pieces
Look for reception lounge pieces with curved legs and arms in gold metal, rather than the standard boxy silver chrome styles.
Sequins and Lace
Taking a hint from the current styling in wedding gowns, delicate sequins and lace patterns dominate in table linen fabrics, nearly always featuring nude and blush tones. Large floral prints in bold colors are also gaining in popularity. These patterns feature a prominent white background, which creates a sophisticated and graphic design. For a fun change up, incorporate this type of print in linens for wedding showers and rehearsal dinners.
