Linen runners and napkins

Linen runners in beautiful rich colors are perfect for fall ! These are actually double placemats : run them across the table and you have a place setting for 2 . They are wide enough to hold a plate and silverware and short enough so they don't get in your lap . Ad an other runner and you have a place setting for 4 and so on . Mix and match runners and napkins for more fun and originality !
Runners 20 x 55"   $ 39.60 ,  napkins set of 4   $ 49



Rich , deep beautiful colors


The more you mix the more the fun !
