5 Ways To Use Linen Table Runners To Give Your Table A Fresh New Look

5 Ways To Use Linen Table Runners To Give Your Table A Fresh New Look

We are very excited to introduce our new Linen Table Runners range.

We've been making table runners as custom made items for a while, so it seemed a good idea to include them as part of our table linen range.

You can order them in plain linen, in all our signature colours, or hand screen printed with one of our designs. They also come in a range of lengths, since we know that each table is individual!

Five Ideas For Table Runners

Idea 1 - as an alternative to a table cloth.  Place at right angles to the table.  Just put your placemats, cutlery and glassware on top of the table runner.

Idea 2 - to make a long table seem shorter.  Place a table runner across the table in the middle.  Using the table runner to provide a point of focus helps to define the area being used. Great for more intimate occasions.

Idea 3 - to dress a table for a special occasion, either formal or informal.  Place the table runner along the length of the table, either on the bare table or over a tablecloth to help decorate the table for a special dining occasion like a birthday or Christmas.

Idea 4 - protect your table.  A table runner helps to protect your table from splashes and spills or candle drips that might not be picked up by table mats.

Idea 5 - they're not just for tables!  Use table runners on sideboards, dressing tables, coffee tables for that pop of colour and to protect the surfaces.

Now you can transform your dining experience with one of our lovely linen table runners.  Great for formal occasions or just everyday!

Co-ordinate With Lovely Linen Napkins and Placemats

Our new linen table runners are designed to complement our lovely linen napkins and placemats.  You can mix and match with either our Naked Collection or by co-ordinating with our beautiful range of screen printed designs on pure linen.

For good value, check out our Dining Gift Bundle with 2 sets of linen placemats (4) and 2 sets of linen napkins (4).

 ★★★★★ Lovely Napkins

We already had one set of these which we purchased along with other items (tea towels, apron and bread bag) when we visited Cornwall a couple of years ago. We loved the items. The quality is very nice and the Hedgerow collection is my favourite. I wanted the napkins in other colours and these did not disappoint either.
