Christofle Presents: How to Elegantly Dine Al Fresco

By Christina Najjar | August 20, 2018 | Lifestyle

Summer may be drawing to a close, but there’s still a few prime weeks left to indulge in one of our favorite activities ever: dining Al Fresco. Christofle has made the idea even more appealing by paying homage to dining outside with their MOOD NOMADE, a follow up to the iconic MOOD silverware set and the mini MOOD COFFEE. MOOD NOMADE is a delicate, leather-corseted set that can be taken anywhere, making dining outside or impromptu picnics in the park an elegant and luxurious experience - truly the Christofle touch.


The MOOD NOMADE is an ode to freedom - an invitation to grab a few good friends and set out for an outdoor brunch in the sun or even a romantic dinner under the stars. It’s elegant, yet relaxed, and isn’t that the perfect combination for end of summer soirees?

Though timeless and classic in design, the MOOD NOMADE is also fiercely modern with its ovoid lines and relaxed attitude. It is a true traveller’s piece with its stunning full-grain calf leather handles in cherry red, and rich finishings that are the hallmark of expert leatherworking. These striking handles embody the Maison Christofle’s new exercise in style. The juxtaposition of the strong metal with the feminine softness of leather is what makes this piece so enchanting. The stunning exterior is only surpassed by what is inside: a complete silverware service for six, resting delicately in a walnut base, ready for you to use with close friends on a warm, balmy night.


The magic doesn’t stop there. Christofle crafted a complete collection for the table, with a matching steel tray with stunning leather handles, two-material candle holders, woven jacquard placemats and a porcelain dishware ensemble composed of plates, serving platters and cups with refined motifs all inspired by MOOD’s shape.


For the final days of the warmer months, indulge in elegance while dining outside. Trust Christofle’s flawless design and legacy of the art of lifestyle to help you savor precious moments in fresh air.
