I have started collecting table linens, mostly in the way of cloth napkins, in the last year. I don’t have a dining table as of now, so I don’t want to start investing in table cloths until I have a better idea of size, so napkins and placemats it is. There is something about the collecting of linens and dishware feels like a right of passage for an aspiring entertainer. Though I often try to pick up things locally when I see them, there are a few places I find myself returning when looking for table linens. So, I thought I would share them with you all.
- Simrane Paris: My boss went to Paris a few years ago and came back with the most beautiful pillow covers from Simrane Paris. I have been stalking the company since for their beautiful linens in a constantly rotating collection of patterns. As they do change out their patterns relatively frequently, it is wise to jump on something if you fall in love.
- Matouk: While typically known for their towels and bedding, and a go to source for both in my office, Matouk also makes some great basic table linens. Since many of the lines are part of their standard collection it is easy to add more items to your collection over time. They also offer personalization services for monogramed linens.
- Hawkins New York: Part of their essentials collection, HNY table linens are just that. I have some linens in the blush and I love the idea of mixing and matching some of the plain colored napkins with a printed table cloth from another brand.
- Amanda Lindroth: Amanda Lindroth can do no wrong, and her table linens are no exception. The quintessential block print napkins and table cloths are a welcome addition to any linen collection. Check out the petite stripe and the scallop collections.
- Pomegranate: They have a bunch of block printed options, but my favorite may be there India Hicks Home collection. Pictured below is a red colorway which is perfect for the holidays, mix with some blue for 4th of July.
- Marigold Living: With a selection of block print, indigo died, and hand embroidered options, there is a good amount of variety at Marigold. My favorite is the ‘Roza’ pattern as it has a unique pink ground.
- SZ Blockprints: A small collection but all so beautiful. Also, check out their baby blankets!
- Etsy: Probably the most diverse source for linens and with the best prices, I’ve been a fan of this store Fabric SG (linked). They offer different edge linings, my favorites are “placemat” style and piping
