Pile on the Charm
When a tablecloth feels too fussy, look to Spoonflower placemats for a touch of color and style. On a practical level, placemats protect your dining table from stains, spills, hot temperatures (and kids!)—but they do it without completely hiding the natural beauty of the surface beneath.
Play up the built-in charm of your dining table with Spoonflower placemats made with natural fibers. From family heirlooms to plastic picnic tables, these cloth placemats make every surface feel extra special.
Q: Which placemat fabric should I choose?
A: Spoonflower placemats are available in three fabric options to suit every party and purpose:
- Linen Cotton Canvas is your go-to for a natural everyday placemat that will get softer and more charming with use.
- Cypress Cotton Canvas features a durable but sophisticated basketweave texture that fits into any setting.
- Longleaf Sateen Grand offers vibrant color and subtle sheen to elevate more formal occasions.
Q: Will the placemat fabric wrinkle?
A: Our Longleaf Sateen Grand is the perfect cotton fabric for low-maintenance luxury. With a more structured weight and low-luster surface, it's our most wrinkle-resistant option. Depending on the formality of your occasion or mood you'd like to set, our other natural-fiber placemats can take a quick and gentle press for a crisper finish.
Q: Are Spoonflower placemats machine washable?
A: Yes! For best results, we recommend washing our placemats with phosphate-free detergent and cool water on a gentle/delicate machine cycle. Tumble dry on a permanent press or low temperature setting and remove promptly.
Q: Are Spoonflower placemats printed on both sides?
A: Your chosen design will be printed to order on one side of each placemat. The reverse backing is plain white.
Q: What color is the topstitching?
A: Our in-house sewing team will custom finish your Spoonflower placemats with enclosed seams and double topstitching in white. This subtle detail beautifully coordinates with our table runners.
Layer on the Luxe
Modern tablescapes don't have to follow the rules! Our 13"x19" placemats come in sets of two so you can buy the prints you love in the quantities you need. Choose placemats of all the same color or mix and match complementary patterns to fit your unique aesthetic.
To make your guests feel like VIPs, pair your placemats with a coordinating table runner or layer them atop an elegantly-draped tablecloth complete with fabric dinner napkins. With a library of over one million designs from independent artists, Spoonflower lets you customize your dining table with more unique options than ever before.
