After Christmas I took these hurricanes into the dining room to "rest" on the table until I packed them away. They are large, and have clean sleek lines, so I tend to feel like they are a little bit modern.
Here they are dressed up for Christmas. When I take off the red bows they change to a more contemporary look. So, what to do?
I placed the hurricanes on a low boy with a champagne bucket filled with ivy.
There is not a single spec of "non-traditional" in the dining room...so I wonder if these hurricanes fit with the style. The wood furniture and everything else is "reproduction" 18th century for the most part. Even the drapery fabric is an old damask pattern.
I placed the hurricanes on a low boy with a champagne bucket filled with ivy. Here is where the style and size can be seen better. They are a larger scale than the champagne bucket. I am wondering if they are too large for the scale of the lowboy.
