I love the bohemian appeal of a tassel—they’re sumptuous and a little messy, the sort of thing some wealthy bon vivant would bring back from her travels around the globe. They also happen to be a cinch to make. So naturally I want them as part of my effortlessly chic table. We used jewel-toned embroidery thread in the same color family to make ours, but you can mix as many colors as you like (or keep them monochrome) to suit your décor. Go on, impress everyone with your worldliness!
