Why it Won: Our judges like the way this tabletop's glass items contrast other parts of the installation. In addition, our judges feel the tabletop fits the concept well by keeping the feel casual and using colors that complement each other well. The tabletop helps create a Mediterranean feel, which is what one would expect when entering the space. And the tabletop contributes to a nice overall d├ęcor.
