Modern-Twist Placemats

Modern-Twist has a great collection of modern placemats which you should definitely take a gander at if you haven’t already. My favorite, oddly enough, is the kid’s versions which are able to be drawn upon with washable markers. Brilliant idea.

Plastic Lace Placemats

I recently purchased some of these and I have to say I’m quite pleased; it’s an old fashioned look modernized into a super flat thin design (it almost looks like a tattoo on the table)…plus, cleanup is super easy- a damp sponge or a quick rinse beats the heck out of laundering/ironing.

Available in black or white.

Messy Tablecloth

First of all, you’ll need to know a bit of Polish to navigate through this retail site, but this tablecloth is so noteworthy that I couldn’t pass it up just because of the language difference.

(I tried a translation site, but it didn’t really help too much. You can also visit the designer’s site:

Such a clever way to keep the conversation going, this table runner has questions and answers that can be read from both ends of the table. It looks like the questions are more riddle-like than the getting-to-know-you variety, but hey, when you’re in a conversation rut, anything helps.

Made of 80% cotton, 20% Polyester, it is machine washable. Imported from The Netherlands.
