It’s not your grandmother’s table setting, that’s for sure. But the images of vintage flatware, antique china, and heirloom trinkets are what make Jennifer Slattery’s home textiles so special.

Family Settings

It’s not your grandmother’s table setting, that’s for sure. But the images of vintage flatware, antique china, and heirloom trinkets are what make Jennifer Slattery’s home textiles so special.

Jennifer is inspired by traditional Irish table settings, and she’s skilled in modern graphic design and printing techniques. The combination is truly original. After we saw Jennifer’s work on a scouting trip to Ireland, she created a custom table runner for the Daily Grommet community that combines two of her signature techniques: line drawings embroidered on Irish linen, and digitally printed photos appliqued on Irish linen.

The embroidered line drawings are of cutlery that belonged to Jennifer’s grandmother. The photo-generated sections feature a tea party scene. The teapot (also from her grandmother) was casting long shadows when Jennifer captured the pictures in the late afternoon sun. The result was a trompe l'oeil effect where her runners come to life. Sewn together, the blending of nostalgia and modernity is a perfect way to add some personality and whimsy to your tabletop.
