A colored tablecloth will instantly brighten any space and make it more inviting. This colored option from Solino Home is crafted from pure European flax linen, which is durable yet soft to the touch. It will easily withstand years of dinner parties and family events.
If you live in a house with kids which is going to guarantee accidents, you’ll want to consider the wipeable tablecloth, as it will save you time and money in the long run. If you are in an environment these accidents are less frequent, then the cost advantage of the cotton tablecloth will be more attractive to you.
A tablecloth is a cloth used to cover a table. Some are mainly ornamental coverings, which may also help protect the table from scratches and stains. Other tablecloths are designed to be spread on a dining table before laying out tableware and food. Some cloths are designed as part of an overall table setting, with coordinating napkins, placemats, or other decorative pieces. Special kinds of tablecloth include runners which overhang the table at two ends only and table protectors to provide a padded layer under a normal cloth.
Tablecloth design, like any other fashion art form, reflected existing tastes and styles of the period. We can use the records of these fashions and moods to generally determine dates. Although in some cases the tablecloths can be assigned to a general decade, as I have done in my book, or even to a specific group of years, the lack of manufacturing records or other cataloguing of these delightful keepsakes makes assigning any one date extremely difficult. For my book, I researched the history of the dyes, copyright & trademark records and poured over vintage catalogs to come up the a “quick reference summary” to help you date your tablecloths.
