When the lovely team of Please be Seated contacted me to do a shoot featuring their new FAB rental items I was THRILLED. If you can't tell by now, I love modern design...and I especially love the timeless pairing of black + white.  This shoot was right up my alley and I am in love with their new pieces. Lele Fain is responsible for all the crisp gorgeous images below!   

BLACK is never going to go out of style. AND these Please Be Seated's black "casper" dining chairs (here) transformed a $12 poly linen into much more of a luxe look.  

For the tabletop: I wanted to keep it clean but also incorporate mixed metals for a contrast.  Copper had it's moment a couple years back and I think it's time to bring it back again- find similar square chargers here .  The beautiful menu cards made in house from The Dotted Line were a perfect touch of feminine against the harsh black napkin! 

a black + white marble couch people... need I say more? 


1.  HOW GREAT are these linen less bistro tables.  I love the clean lines + ghost chair pairing for a non fussy look.

 2.  Black panels FTW on their "in the round" bar (here) -1/2 the round pictured.  The panels are interchangeable for any event + creates a unique design / makes a big statement.  

3. I am also obsessed with how this ALL looks in the beautiful space of Country Music Hall of Fame against their legendary windows!
