Placements & Napkins

It only takes a little effort to make an occasion special. It’s the small touches that turn a normal dinner into a memorable meal. Decorating your dining room table is quick way to transform a room and welcome guests.

With the right colors and accents, you can make a regular weeknight dinner feel like a special occasion. Just with a cloth napkin, a table feels formal, ready for a big holiday meal with family or romantic evening with your spouse. It’s easy to add a special touch to your table with placemats and napkins.

The first step to decorating your dining room is selecting a tablecloth.
Try picking a color or pattern you feel appropriate and layering with coordinating pieces.

It’s with the seemingly small accents, like placemats and napkins, where you can get really creative and make the perfect setting for your meal. Theses pieces come in colors and patterns to complement any personal style.

Our Plum Flora collection is beautifully accented with taupe, green and a touch of mauve. It’s an elegant pattern to match with sage curtains or walls. The rich jungle blooms make soft, but rich design. We like accentuating this collection with sage Aged Wooden Tray as a table centerpiece, simply place a few candles or tea lights in the tray to generate instant ambiance.

Prefer something simpler?

We love the elegant pattern of the Mandarin Lapis’ Asian-influenced floral design. The classic crisp white and royal blue color combination is timeless. It’s perfect for a sun-dappled morning brunch or a romantic Italian dinner for two.

The Mandarin Lapis Placemat is also reversible, revealing a medallion pattern on one side and a floral on the other. For extra dimension, try layering the placemat with the Essentials Placemat in Lapis or Neutral.

There are many stylish coordinates in this collection to embellish your dining room table, like the striking medallion napkin ring.

The Palazzo placemat is reversible, with plenty of opportunities for variation and layering.

The reverse side displays a simple leaf and vine design in a tonal palette of soft cream and beige. Consider pairing the placemat with the reversible Palazzo Table Runner, coordinating cloth napkins and leaf vine napkin ring.

You can add some juxtaposition against the floral design of the Palazzo pieces with the geometric Chevron Hurricane candle holders to add interest. We like layering the patterned and solid fabrics for updated tabletop style.

The decorating opportunities are endless. Creating a lively, personalized dining room table is simple with so many coordinates to choose from.

Rugs

For example, putting a rug underneath a table can help divvy the eating area from your kitchen or living room.

Others use rugs to inspire a room’s color palette by making it a main focal point, as they can create a big impact.

Regardless of how choose to decorate with your rug, picking the right style and design will add excitement to any space.

An easy way to create dimension and vibrancy is to decorate with color.

Bright rugs develop energy and help you determine what colors to utilize in your décor. The Green Geo Chindi Throw Rug is a soft, spring green that blends nicely with many colors and patterns.

It’s the perfect size to place beside your bed, under a coffee table or in your foyer. Jute fibers create a warm, organic look that complements a table of plants, wooden accents and sheer curtains.

The Granite Chindi Throw Rug is very subtle, laid-back and calming, with a simple chindi stripes in natural shades of beige, grey and cream. Consider placing this rug in a room that’s painted a vibrant color or in need of relaxing shades to balance the space.
