Now more than ever before, gathering around the table is so important. Whether it’s a Sunday roast with the family, a supper with friends or a simple dinner for two, mealtimes should be given time and dedication, turning them from a necessity into a ceremony, one where laughter, communication and true connection are the order of the day.

Tara O’Connor – a long-time devotee to tablescaping – wants to bring everyone back to the table to celebrate the everyday. Her new range, The Designed Table, features a vibrant collection of table linens and accessories all created to elevate the dining experience. Tara’s passion for setting a beautiful table stems from both a successful career in PR and events spanning more than 20 years as well as her upbringing, right through to her personal love of entertaining.

“I love entertaining. I don’t wait for a good occasion to use my table linen. When friends and family visit, I’ll always make sure to create a wonderful tablescape. My mom was always a great entertainer, so that is where my passion for tablescaping comes from. Through my work, too, I’ve had the pleasure of styling so many great events and parties..”

"As a consumer, I found it difficult to source table linen for the home that suited my own personal taste. That’s why my first collection has so much colour. Where I live, and the countryside, has very much influenced this collection. I want to bring some fun and colour into people’s homes and to elevate the everyday dining experience."

With an extensive range of tablecloths, runners, and cotton linen napkins in vibrant colours and elegant prints, the first collection for The Designed Table offers something to suit every taste, complemented beautifully by the rattan and jute placemats and marble and wooden napkin rings. The collection is designed to work interchangeably, offering versatility and variation to suit the occasion. Every piece is designed by Tara in Ireland and made in India by compliant manufacturers. Let The Designed Table inspire you to set the table for a magical feast that will bring friends and family together.
