When we needed a designer to give the ol? fruit-bowl centerpiece a remix, we knew exactly who to call. Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy and author of Apartment Therapy's Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces, constantly dreams up inspiring new twists on simple decor. He taught us how to top our tables with this fresh arrangement. To make it, top a few cake stands or footed bowls with heirloom tomatoes of various shapes and colors. Place a few smaller plates or bowls around, filling each with another tomato or two. Finish the farm-to-table look by scattering singles or bundles (still on the vines) around the glassware.
