Decoration idea: the table runner
When thinking about table linen, tablecloths and napkins often first come to mind. However, the table runner is an amazing decorative home accessory. Less formal than a tablecloth, a table runner can be left in place as an ornamentation, even after dinner time. Here are a few ideas on how to use table runners.
Classic look: for a beautiful table
Traditionally a table runner is used across the table, dressing the table without entirely covering it. Used this way it enhances long tables, as well as beautifying wooden tables. It can be used on its own, or over a plain tablecloth. A table runner in red tones will always look very stylish over a beige tablecloth. On a wooden table, the most effective choice is a table runner with a white background, printed with any kind of design.
Elegant look: to highlight placings
For a chic table, it is always a good idea to use table runners to highlight place settings. Once again, they can be used directly on the table or over a plain tablecloth. On a large table, for a lunch or dinner, bringing many people together. The table runners will look very elegant but remain simple at the same time. For an intimate meal, a table runner will give a cozy touch and enhance the table with no effort.
Decorative use: over a coffee table or a piece of furniture
A table runner can simply be used for decorative purposes, to dress a piece of furniture or a table, even for everyday use. It is actually the best solution to fight the clutter which tends to accumulate on the living room table. A table runner will help to protect a glass coffee table, enhancing it at the same time. Over a buffet, or in a corridor, a table runner will bring a colorful touch without hiding the furniture. A table runner is an easy to incorporate and maintain decorative tool, it can easily be changed to follow the seasons and mood!
