For a business lunch, a birthday celebration or a get-together for family or friends, take every chance you get to share a good meal. What's more you can create visual appeal for your guests. Have you ever considered using linen placemats? Let us look at their benefits, and review various models for various occasions.
Benefits of linen placemats
Apart from preserving your table from stains and marks from food or hot dishes, placemats are also a decorative element. Usually rectangular, this significant item can replace a tablecloth or come on top of it. The placemat is said to date back to the 15th century – a famous antique dealer from Venice would have come up with the idea after one of her guests said he found her table too plain.
Placemats are quite practical on several accounts. They adapt to any type of table, whatever the size. No need to take measures or think hard. Each guest has their own placemat and can enjoy their meal comfortably as linen is a very soft and ecological fabric, which will give appeal and character to your table, for a friendly meal.
Linen placemats are extremely easy to maintain as they can be machine-washed. You can use different colours depending on the time of the year – bright, sparkling tones in the summer, and softer, warmer shades in the wintertime. They can match your napkins, and if you decide to put a tablecloth underneath, choose different colours to enhance your placemats.
