How To Use Patterned Table Linens


Table linens are the best choice for creating an inviting scene to your loved ones. Enjoy with your guests in a balanced and harmonious atmosphere. To achieve this, you must coordinate the correct elements on the table, starting with the type of colors and motifs used.


How To Coordinate Patterned Table Linens

When it comes to coordinating patterned table linens, you must take into consideration that achieving saturation is very easy, for this reason, you must be very careful with the hues you choose. In addition, you should know that the balance must be full, that is, integrating not only the table but the immediate context.


Design a dazzling scene

  • Tablecloths and dinnerware.
  • Tablecloths + Table runners + Table napkins.
  • Table linens and the space.

  1. Tablecloths and dinnerware.

Tablecloths are the foundation of your decoration, so everything you build must be supported by the design lines of these pieces.

When you choose patterned tablecloths, you should use a dinnerware that is not disruptive, that is, that creates a color harmony. Neutral hues can be an option, even if they have decorative details, but in small sizes.

  2. Tablecloths + Table runners + Table napkins.

When you decide to use tablecloths, napkins and table runners at the same time it is important that you achieve a perfect synergy. Choosing patterns of the same type would make your presentation flat and boring, but mixing patterns would create a sense of disorder.

The most advisable is to use table runners in solid colors (matching with the tablecloth), and napkins that can follow the same pattern of the foundation. In this way, an attractive balance will be achieved.

  3. Table linens and the space.

In general, patterned tablecloths offer a greater visual weight than solid tablecloths, so they become an excellent option when you want to make a table presentation in large spaces.

Even some patterns are related to classic outdoor moments, such as the picnic with checkered tablecloths.


Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style.
