A well set table is like an orchestra: it needs a lot of good soloists for a top performance. If you wish to present a completely perfect impression, then knife rests should not be forgotten. They provide the crowning final touch to a nicely laid table – irrespective of their design.
The "Nile & Co." knife rests from Sieger by Fürstenberg in the shape of small painted animals are like miniature sculptures. Providing a less flamboyant alternative are the silverplated knife rests from Christofle and Ercuis, which will go with practically any dinner service. Just as with glasses or cutlery, it is possible to underline the look of a table or provide a contrast with knife rests. When they are painted by hand with the detail of the "Jardin Céleste" knife rests from Raynaud or display the striking shape of the "Cristobal" knife rests for example, then they may also become the table's star accoutrement.
