Want to add panache to your backyard barbecue? Los Angeles interior designer Mark Cutler's series of whimsical table covers can help. Dubbed Tableaux Cloths, the coverups sport drawings depicting Baroque- and Louis XV-style tables. Made of machine-washable polyester fabric with ink drawings, they look smart indoors or out and come in an array of sizes. Prices range from $385 for the Baroque side table (24 inches by 18 inches), shown here, to $1,100 for the Louey Large Dining Table (72 inches by 30 inches by 29 inches). If you want an even bigger wrap, Cutler's new Tableaux Tent (10 feet by 10 feet), resembling a stone pavilion, creates an instant outdoor room.
