Christmas is all about gathering together for a feast with your favourite people. Sydney furniture makers Mark Tuckey asked seven of their favourite creatives to create a Christmas table (Some are glitzy, some are glam, some are just plain dotty) and we’re sharing one with you each day this week.
Today, we have artist and bed linen queen Rachel Castle, director of Castle and Things. She used the Tripod Dining Table.
“We need Christmas prep to be quick and easy. We work right up until Christmas Eve, and some customers even drop by the office, and later at night by my house, to pick up orders. I’ve got to say the late last minuters are always the husbands, funny.
“I grab all the circles and offcuts I can from the office and on Christmas morning simply lay the table and then colour everything up with bits and bobs of paper and tinsel and streamers.
“A little spot, funny, totally puts whimsy into anything. My family however, are probably a little over the spot situation. Tough luck peoples, it’s just how we rock ‘n roll! At least I buy them nice presents to make up for it.”
