A beautiful table cloth or runner is a must when you want to decorate your dining table festively for a special occasion. While lovingly-designed textiles today have a decorative purpose, in the late Middle Ages they were more intended for hygiene. Cloths fastened directly to the table were used to wipe the hands and mouth. Over the years, these table cloths that were mainly used as napkins developed into more of a decorative element and became a vital part of a table's look. At your next dinner, team the charming table runners from Villeroy & Boch with a white table cloth in classic style or, to make a more modern statement, arrange the textile table runner directly on the beautiful wooden table.
As a host, there are lots of ways you can lay a table with the numerous table runners and place mats from Villeroy & Boch. Whether a single runner takes up the entire length of the table or you prefer a tête-à-tête version with second and third runners positioned cross-ways is simply a matter of taste. To ensure a harmonious look, the runner and place mats should be in matching colours. The Amazonia place mats not only protect the sensitive surface of the table from stains and scratches, but also impress with attractive design when teamed with a table runner and matching napkins. The table linen in the TREND range is available in 13 different colours and is a real eye-catcher on any table – especially when the magnificent colour is broken up with gleaming white porcelain.
The fine table textiles are further proof that products from Villeroy & Boch are always of the highest quality. Produced from premium fabrics, the runners and place mats are excellent alternatives to a classic table cloth. The textiles in the TREND series are made from 100% polyester and extremely easy to care for thanks to their after-treatment with stain protection. Intended for everyday use, they are wipe-clean and are cleaned in the washing machine at no more than 60°C. Runners and place mats made from dyed or printed cotton create an especially cosy feel, as the bright colours and woven texture underscore the shimmering porcelain of your dining plates. The hand-embroidered linen place mats and runners, on the other hand, bring a touch of exclusivity to your table for special occasions.
When the entire family comes together at Christmas or Easter, runners and place mats with seasonal motifs give your table a sophisticated look as you serve the Christmas turkey or Easter lamb. Those with a real eye for detail will also decorate the centre of the table with delicate flowers in vases from Villeroy & Boch or elegant candle holders. Depending on your theme, you could also decorate the table runner with small branches, shells or petals. The beautiful decorative elements are also outstanding as kind gifts for a wedding, house-warming or anniversary. Accompany your gift with the tip that white table cloths are best accompanied by colourful place mats, and colourful table cloths by runners in more subtle shades.
