Discover the keys to hosting unforgettable gatherings with our "5 Commandments of Inviting Guests." Whether it's a small dinner or a grand celebration, let these principles guide you to infuse genuine hospitality into your invitations and leave a lasting impression on your cherished guests.

1. The dining table is God

The importance of a good table is crucial. Do you like the natural look of wood, then the T21D Table from Pierre Chapo or the EM Table from Vitra is an excellent choice. Or do you prefer the Artek style, such as the 90A, the 81A or the 91 table? Would you rather see a version in marble? Then the Tulip collection from Knoll is your thing. Holy Table!

2. Thou shalt use eye-catchers

It's all in the details. To impress your guests, use eye catchers like the Aalto Tea Trolley, or a beautiful decanter or pitcher, a serving bowl, an inspiring Rivi table cloth or a decorative object like the Eames House Bird or a Wooden Doll is enough. With the famous glassware by Iittala such as the Essence or Ultima Thule collection or an Alvar Aalto vase you definitely make a big impression.

3. Honor and comfort your guests

Make sure your guests are comfortable on an easy sitting dining chair, perhaps with a soft pillow or a blanket for outdoor coziness. A digestive or a coffee can be enjoyed in a Vitra Organic chair, Fauteuil de Salon, the Knoll Womb Chair or the famous Bertoia Diamond Chair. Cheers!

4. Bring in some sacred light

Creating an atmosphere with light is always a good idea. That doesn't necessarily have to be candle light. Take a look at the Santa & Cole collection, such as the new Sylvestrina or the Cesta family, or the famous Akari lamps from Vitra. Eye candy during dinner.

5. Remember the Sabbath day

After welcoming your guests, it is important to rest to the max. Your well-deserved power or afternoon nap is best taken in a Barcelona Day Bed, an Eames Lounge Chair or in the Cité Armchair by Jean Prouvé. Or maybe outside in your Schultz Adjustable Chaise Lounge or the Thonet S 35 N Chair. Sleept tight!
