Accessory of the week: Table clothsMay 1st, 2013 by Harry
With this year’s trends of shabby chic and minimalism, table cloths have been put on the style back-burner.
Now that spring is finally here, a new breed of bright, fresh table cloths are ready to make a comeback. No laminated gingham here, just natural cottons and linens to suit the season’s trends. Covering your table is a great way to brighten up a room and protect your shabby chic table from getting any shabbier.
This is such a simple idea and will make your room look bright and fresh. You can easily re-create this ombre table cloth by dip dying a white linen sheet. You could use any colour from royal blue to ultra-stylish grey/black.
Geometric table linen…
A table cloth doesn’t need to swallow up your entire table. You can find strips of table linen that will be perfect for resting hot plates on and will be a wonderful decorative addition to your table.

A bit of ‘70s…
A linen table cloth will bring a smart, crisp feel to a room and is easily washable.
