Event: Indoor/Outdoor with Janus et Cie
Bob Bell of Bell Design worked with Ruth Gorland of Ruth Gorland Interiors to transform a portion of Janus et Cie's incredible Georgetown, DC fufurniture showroom into a series of vignettes showcasing Janus's products styled for interior and exterior use. Ruth put together novel ideas for autumn place settings and tableware for an outdoor meal: cool blues and green of faux cabbage leaves were highlighted and accentauted by antique glass wine coolers used as first course bowls. Black enameled chopsticks added a touch of of Asia while washable paper napkins added crispness and a figurative "green" accent to the setting.
Bob incorporated a series of ten plants with autumn interest with pieces from Janus et Cie's extensive decorative container line. Delicate Muhlenbergia and Pennisetum grasses filled Janus's woven tall planters and provided a dreamy back drop for the dining table.
