Guide for selecting the perfect Table Linen


1.Know your size.

Before investing in table linens, it is important that to be sure of the size of your table. As a general rule a 30cm (12 inch) drop should at each side and end for drape. In simple terms, the linen tablecloth you choose should be 60cms (24 inches) wider and longer than your table. For example if your table measurement were 120 x 300cm, the best-fit linen tablecloth for you would be the 183 x 366cm. If you need help choosing the best tablecloth size for your table, please use our online Tablecloth Size Guide. If you prefer a longer drape this will need to be calculated separately, as our size guide does not allow for this. Please note that for many of our ranges, the napkins, placemats and runners also come in a variety of sizes. It is important to take your table size and the number of place settings you want into consideration when choosing these items.
