Concrete Blanket Love Aesthetics Atelier

Chairs to me are what shoes are to Carry Bradshaw -but- sometimes it is more fun without them. The vibe instantly becomes relaxed and literally laid back. Dinners closer to the floor with lots of pillows and blankets around are the cosiest, the funnest, the ones that get out of hand time-wise.
This time I put the concrete blanket on the table instead of on the floor, soft texture looks so fantastic against the reflective glass and sharp looking fractures that serve as platters. The thick green glass is an ongoing theme in our home; a slender overbed table, in our kitchen cupboards, and the biggest piece being this coffee-table in the living room.
Admittedly, I also do these indoor picnics (more often on the floor) when I run out of time but dinner has to be served on time for the kid. So what was initially going to be a boring-fast-sandwich-dinner, becomes instant fun. Specially in the middle of winter. I am yet to travel to Japan and experience some real floor culture – but for now – our own floor is also pretty comfy.
