Bright and Bold: Mrs Tablescapes now open in Sydney

Newly opened in the elegant and fashionable suburb of Double Bay, Mrs Tablescape is a bold and colourful new concept store catering to home entertaining aficionados keen on styling their dinner tables to instagram worthy levels! However, more than just a shop for stunning hand-made tablewares, the Mrs Tablescape store in Sydney’s eastern suburbs is an interactive gallery of objets d’art: whimsical, practical, and daring all at once. The retail space will further function as an arts hub with themed exhibitions, exclusive product releases and workshops in tablescaping, ceramics, linen stitching and more.

Mrs Tablescapes founder, Carolyn Dorrian was previously a lawyer of 11 years, hasn’t looked back since turning her passion into new her career post-COVID. Dorrian travels the globe lovingly curating every item from only the finest artisans. No detail is overlooked in her pursuit to realise her creative vision – not only is there an in-house ceramicist to hand make the wares, there’s also an in-house painter on the books.

“My philosophy is based on bringing beauty and joy into daily life,” says Dorrian.

“I believe art has the most impact when it’s enjoyed in tangible ways – and there’s no better way to incorporate it than through the practice of tablescaping. You make memories around the table with your loved ones. Every moment is savoured with all your senses – touch, smell, sight, taste. The table is really the heart of the home and when we elevate it, we celebrate life itself.”

Mrs Tablescape takes an unapologetically maximalist approach when it comes to all things tablescaping and that also extends to the shop fit out. Designed and built by Mrs Tablescape herself with the help of her family, the Double Bay store pays homage to Dorrian’s love of organic shapes and high art inspired by Parisian interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch. From its wavy skirting boards to the store’s cream-and-brown pebble tiles, every aspect has been lovingly catered to in this labour of love.

Beginning with leading Dada and Surrealist artist John Cocteau, Mrs Tablescape will unveil a different artist and theme every month in store and release a limited set of hand painted tablewares to match the artist. On top of exhibiting general lifestyle art, Mrs Tablescape will be showcasing deconstructed fashion art plates dedicated to the latest and greatest fashion icons.

“We have an amazing lineup of artwork and artists in the wings,” says Dorrian, “Our monthly art exhibition will also feature many local up and coming artists. I’m very excited about the Beauty and the Beast themed exhibition that we have in the works! We want visitors to come in and experience the full spectrum of what we have to offer whether it's enjoying some art or learning something new at a workshop. My hope is that Mrs Tablescape will become an active part of the arts and culture community for many years to come.”
