The intricate lace cut work on the Chilewich chargers in brass, gold, gunmetal, silver or black will illicit swoons from guests upon sitting down at your picturesque table setting. The Linen Registry, 204 Metairie Road, 831-8228

Check your reflection or create the impression of more space in a small area with the inclusion of a beveled French blue-framed mirror with gold leaf edging by designer John-Richard (44-by-63-by-3). Ashley Hall Interiors, 832 Howard Ave., 524-0196, AshleyHallInteriors.com 

Available in hand-painted turquoise or gold taffeta, the Gloria Key Tassel will add a pretty pop to a door knob or an antique blanket chest. Kathy Slater Interiors, 3954 Magazine St., 400-9032, KathySlater.com

For a hint of rustic whimsy, incorporate a small stag leg accent table into the mix. The weathered cream finish with aged bronze accents, topped off with an outline of acanthus leaves, adds a softness to the carved deer leg base (21-by-10.5-by-15).  Rug Chic, 4240 Louisiana 22, (985) 674-1070, RugChic.com
