Behind the Design

Setting the Stage for Entertaining with Designer Penny Drue Baird

AD 100 Designer Penny Drue Baird of Dessins LLC, has been a fan of entertaining since she was a young girl, and considers creating elegant table settings for her clients and her own dinner parties the final step in pulling together a home. Known for her ability to design in a variety of styles and situations, she takes an equally eclectic approach to the tables she conceives, which, in addition to the expected tableware, often include accessories from around the house, deployed to enrich the table and enliven any gathering. The designer's new book On Interior Design (Images Publishing Design) is out this fall, and features a chapter on choosing and displaying acessories. Here, she shares some of her favorite settings and the thinking that inspires her creative tablescapes.
