Table linens are an easy way to decorate your dining room table. Table linens are intended to be functional as well as decorative. The wonderful thing about table linens is that you can decorate your table for every holiday and season.
Tablecloths are large finished fabric pieces designed to cover the entire table. They be decorative or utilitarian and are made from a variety of fabrics, from cotton to linen.
Placemats are smaller, finished pieces of fabric, designed to cover the space on the table in front of each individual diner. Placemats are also available in a myriad of styles and fabrics.
Napkins are small, soft, finished pieces of fabric that coordinate with tablecloths or placemats, and are intended for wiping your hands and mouth during a meal.
A table runner is a purely decorative piece of fabric, often brocade or upholstery, that runs down the middle of the table. Table runners often stretch the entire length of a table.
