dexter dining room.

bloody comfortable and dismembered flatware created for the metropolitan home's showtime house dexter dining room by amy lau design.

as part of a month long, groundbreaking print and television partnership, a celebrated group of designers will transform a beautiful gramercy park townhouse into a luxurious beacon of modernism inspired by the top six original hit series from showtime.

the room features a table ready for a sit down dinner for twelve. curious of what it could be like to eat with dexter? this is not about what will be served, it is all about how to savor it... the table is set to play with our senses. setting the mood are amy lau's chairs, elegant, wounded and slashed; the clean, protective plastic tablecloth; the blood vials centerpieces. the table is surrounded by steven antonson’s candlesticks, reminiscent of vertebrae and filled with blood red candles, they easily fit a murderer’s grip. sip fine wines from thomas fuchs/otium designed glassware with luminous 'blood-filled' stems and ominous fingerprints. choose your weapon. savor the delectable dinner while challenged by steve butcher's dismembered flatware, a fascinating and disturbing set. nadeige choplet's handmade ceramic plates celebrate the love of blood via an intricate pattern of blood splatters, veins and capillaries under a delicate porcelain skin; and finally dessert can be enjoyed on klein reid's fine porcelain, served with the fine trace of a fingerprint.
