Table settings by Marieke Verdenius
Under the aphorism ‘Simplicity is key’, Marieke Verdenius performs. When visiting her workplace, we notice that her token is not merely an online-mask. The calmness and honesty that reflects through the images she creates, is truly there. In space and above all, in person.
Marieke is a visual creator, of which one of the focuses is on food-styling . She captures the flavors of a supper in her images, making you want to sit down at that table, ready for that night’s dinner. She knows exactly how to dress up a table to appeal guests. At Winter in Holland we are truly appealed to her eye for style. So that is why we asked her to create images for us under our theme ‘Dinner’. In her styling she uses our cotton textile as a napkin.
Winter in Holland originally was set out on developing the ideal cotton cloth that absorbs much water, in order to perfectly dry dishes. We reached our goal. Even though we found out that many of our towel-users, use the textile for different purposes. One of these is the use of the textile as a napkin. We learned that people enjoyed the ‘look’ of the towel so much. They would like to use it as a functional-decoration on the table as well. Which made us curious:
How would a professional table/food stylist, use a napkin? Therefore we asked Marieke to inspire you. By showing you,and us, how she would dress up her dinner table when friends come over:

Get yourself one of these napkins. Marieke uses our grey ‘Labiatae‘ in her table setting. They are not only perfect to dress the table, as we know now. The 100% cotton knit is also easy in care: you can wash it on 60 Degrees and it will keep a long lasting beauty.
