The Friday Five: Lace

I’m curious as to what your thoughts are about lace. I personally love it but I think it’s too delicate for me in terms of both fashion and home. It’s just so dainty and fragile. Or is it?

What’s your opinion? Do you wear it? Own it? For what purposes?

Happy Friday! And happy weekend!

Metal Lace

We love the delicate cut-out shapes of these metal lace table top accessories. They strike that contemporary balance somewhere between Moroccan lanterns, Art Deco aspirations, and grandma’s doilies.

The trays are obviously useful as well as simple decorative pieces, and to be perfectly honest, I predict the napkin holder will manifest itself in my home in the near future.
