Cafe table for two, Paris,original art, 5" x 7"
When we see red checkered tablecloths
Cafe Le Buci Paris,original art, 5" x 7"
We start thinking of French cafes...
Cafe Marie Stuart Paris,original art, 5" x 7"
Even though "gingham" originally comes from Indonesia, was assimilated by the Dutch and finally was produced in the mills of Manchester, England..
It has an inherently Frenchie flavor to it. Bonnard used it innumerable times in his intimate, homey paintings
Red checked fabric is called Nappe à carreaux in France? Most traditional wine bistros will dress their tables in red checks
Like the bistro we went to in the 7th arrondissement because red wine stains come out easily or blend in on red checked tablecloths?
Red checks show up on a lot of cafe chairs. The red patterns set off so well a Parisien's stylish neutral or black clothing.
And cafe au lait bols to boot at boutique Sabre - 4, rue des Quatre Vents 75006
At all-round department store, BHV, you can find faux red checked dish towels(torchon) and bols "stickers" to cheer up your kitchen. Where are the real ones when you need them?
A red checkered fraiser gateaux!
Bonjour RED CHECKS!
