AT THE TABLE WITH DANYEL COUET
At the end of February, LINUM arranged an exclusive gentlemen’s dinner with top Swedish restaurateur Danyel Couet and his team at Allegrine restaurant in Stockholm. With a well-planned table setting and Danyel as host, our aim was to provide a colourful food experience over seven courses.
The evening’s table setting
To set the tone for the evening, we plumped for the muted, subtle mélange effect of our HEDVIG tablecloth in black, in a 170×330 cm size, as our party of fourteen called for our absolute premier fabric. Nowadays it is increasingly rare to find these larger lengths and widths, which gives us that bit more pride to offer table textiles for slightly larger events, too. Our new FUEGO apron in a sharp mustard yellow inspired our accent colour, which in this case came in the form of our HEDVIG napkins in a cooler shade of yellow. Embroidered into the napkins in yellow stitching were the guests’ names, to serve as a seating plan. A tasteful touch that made the experience that bit more personal..
The evening’s guest list had been carefully planned. We wanted to bring a spirited and fruitful dynamic to the evening’s conversations, so we invited contemporary personalities with different backgrounds and life projects. Such names included musicians Jesper Swärd and Kid Eriksson from the band Tjuvjakt, writer Stefan Nilsson, who runs the respected blog Trendstefan, and Svante Öquist, who has long been a journalist in the Swedish and international design media.
Brass and marble details
Over the last year, LINUM has presented a new range of kitchen hardware to complement our range of soft home textiles. This included the CUT chopping boards in 100% FSC-certified oak, and the KAHN series, made entirely of solid brass. We are particularly proud of our serving boards MABLE in green and grey marble, and our exquisite little bowls for spices and salt flakes. The candles in our KAHN candlesticks burned throughout the evening at Allegrine – a perfect frame for what turned out to be a night to remember.
