An Art Deco Tray

I’m currently making the final render for the Art Deco hotel room. I wanted to have a tray of food on the bed to do a DOF scene with the Manhattan skyline as background.

At designconnected.com there was a wonderful, free model of a breakfast set. Perfect! All we need now is a tray in the Art Deco style. I looked around the net for some inspiration and my oh my, there are so many cool Deco trays out there! Here are some of my favorites:

Wouldn’t mind having a tray or two of the above at home :). I loved the trays made of rosewood and chrome, with curved handles and mirror glass base, so I modeled something similar. Here’s the wireframe view.

And here it is with the breakfast set. Instead of a mirror base I went with a lacquered black one, for drama.

The flower is from my 3D viz software’s sample models; I changed the texture/color of the petals and added a small vase to hold a bunch.

Modeled and rendered with Shade 12 (path tracing with radiosity).

    Peaches look good but those croissants look hard and inedible! I’d prefer the tray to have the same color for the sides and the base.
