11 Minimalist #TableDecor With Maximum Impact

If tightly curated decor is the name of the game, draw inspiration from spare but dramatic tabletop looks from events around you.

Sometimes minimalist design can make a bigger, more dramatic statement at events than elaborate and fussy decor. When an event calls for a less-is-more aesthetic, draw inspiration from these chic and understated tabletop looks, ranging from rustic to elegant.

At the Elle Women in Hollywood awards this month at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, six-time designer-producer Caravents chose a blush tone for the tabletops to complement main sponsor Calvin Klein Reveal fragrance's bottle and packaging. Clear glass vessels at the center of the table held white roses.

Diffa's Dining by Design event is typically the place to spot abundant, ornate tabletops. At the New York event in 2012, a few more spare looks also made dramatic impacts: Herman Miller's table had a vintage 1950s look, with twine tying place cards to wooden tops.
