Tablecloths

The starting point of any table setting is undeniably the base. The tablecloth you choose will guide every other choice you make and will act as the backdrop for your dining event.

Bed Threads 

Bed Threads have a range of 100% French flax linen tablecloths, which are available in three rectangle sizes and a large range of colours. The rich hues (our personal favourite being olive) are complemented by a luxurious drape and soft finish. Perfect for mixing and matching with napkins and placemats. 

Abode Living

Expertly woven from French and Belgian linen, the Abode Living tablecloths are designed to be used on repeat. Each of the four styles, which are handcrafted in either France or Melbourne, provide a casual softness to your dining space. With neutral and muted colour palettes these tablecloths keep things simple. Custom-made sizes can also be accommodated by request. 

Little Tienda

Little Tienda table setting in Blush

Fun colours and the striped print on these tablecloths from Little Tienda will transport you straight into summer. Available in cobalt and blush, each piece is unique due to the handcrafting process, making them feel just that extra bit special to you. The 100% natural fibres are 55% cotton and 45% linen and the tablecloths are ethically made in India.

Williams Sonoma

Many of the Williams Sonoma tablecloths are made from sustainably sourced OEKO-TEX certified cotton and certified by the Better Cotton Initiative. With a range of patterns and prints these tablecloths will do all of the talking. We particularly like their outdoor tablecloths for when spring and summer time dining takes you outside.

Table runners

Layer with your tablecloth or let it speak on its own, table runners add an extra flair to any table setting. 

Williams Sonoma

Williams Sonoma has a range of both OEKO-TEX certified cotton and linen table runners in both neutral and lively colour ways and prints. The Italian Washed Linen Table Runner is a personal favourite if you are looking to keep things pared back or the Palm Leaf Table Runner for something more energetic.

Once you’ve got your base sorted you can play around more. Placemats are an easy way to zhuzh up your table and can be mixed and matched for an eclectic look. 

Bed Threads

Bed Threads Tarracotta Rose Placemats

Both the Classic and the Scalloped placemats from Bed Threads are great choices. Made from 100% French flax linen, every meal will feel like a special occasion. The Classic collection comes in a range of colours (we have been eyeing off rust) and are function yet stylish read: will look cute, while protecting your table from spills and marks. The Scalloped range has a curved edge in a contrasting shade, making them the life of the party.

Abode Living

Made from a range of natural materials such as linen, jute, cotton and denim, the Abode Living placemats are a real treat for your table. The range is small but mighty and provides a rustic feel. The Abode Living placemats are proudly made in Melbourne. 

Napkins

The days of paper napkins have come and gone. Elevate the culinary experience with napkins that you can keep loving with every meal.

Coasters

Not only do coasters protect your table from moisture, they also can act as a styling piece. 

I.E. Francis

IE Francis Leather Coasters

No one will want to put their drink down and cover up the beauty that is the I.E. Francis coasters. Handmade in Melbourne from Australian leather that has been tanned near Geelong – offcuts from the I.E. Francis’s Loop Pendants range – these coasters are a timeless table piece. Over time these leather coasters will absorb moisture and show marks, creating a beautiful pattern that will tell the stories of your dining experiences. Creator Isaac Francis goes to great lengths to ensure the manufacturing materials are sourced locally.

Tea towels

While not necessarily needed for the table styling itself, tea towels can end up strewn across your table as hot dishes are being served, so why not make it stylish?

Abode Living

Absorbent, lint free and beautifully designed are all ticks for the Abode Living tea towels. Made from 100% linen, these tea towels are crafted by the team’s Melbourne seamstresses or come direct from trusted European suppliers. With a range of simple and aesthetically pleasing designs these pieces will suit your table needs.

Claire Ritchie

You’ll be intentionally leaving the Claire Ritchie tea towels on the table at your next dining event. The funky designs are playful, unique and sure to draw some attention. Made from a cotton-linen blend these tea towels are designed and sewn in Brisbane and digitally printed in Melbourne.
