Our placemats, tablecloths and napkins provide a fresh foundation for building a beautiful table setting while protecting table surfaces from unintended spills and splatters. We offer placemats made from cotton, natural fibers, Chilewich vinyl and more. We offer tablecloths in three standard lengths for the most common table sizes. We also have round tablecloths available in several colors and patterns. Our cloth napkins never go out of style and add something special to any occasion. Dress them up with an interesting napkin ring that makes a table setting feel complete. If you prefer to leave your tabletop exposed, opt for one of our table runners to add a touch of style while allowing some of your tabletop to shine.
Dinner and Serveware
Our unique dinnerware and serveware patterns will provide years of enjoyment. Our experts select unique patterns that easily go from casual, everyday dining to special occasions. Many of our dinnerware patterns have their own serving pieces to create a table with a uniform look. If you prefer something more eclectic, choose from our many specialty pieces that show off your personality while remaining durable and functional. Brightly painted earthenware, gorgeously glazed stoneware, clean white porcelain and translucent bone china all have a place within our exclusive dinnerware patterns. Our serving options include wood, glass and metal to accent the table. For outdoor dining, we also have melamine and acrylic that's lightweight and safe to transport from kitchen to table and back.
A beautiful glass can be that special item that makes a meal memorable. We work with greatest glass manufacturers around the world like Krosno of Poland and Libbey in the USA. We have a stunning stemware collection that includes specialty wine glasses expertly designed to bring out the nuanced flavors of your favorite varietal as well as European-style tumblers perfect for enjoying your favorite house wine. We’ve have an expanded craft beer glass collection that reflects the increasing sophistication of this popular beverage. Pilsners, IPA and stout glasses, even the traditional beer mug are on display for you to choose from. We didn’t forget cocktails and have bar glasses and barware that’s suitable for a gingery Moscow mule, classic martini straight up or late-night single malt scotch. We have everyday drinkware as well, perfect for that morning glass of milk, midday soda or quenching glass of water any time.
Flatware can set the mood and support the style of a meal. Our standard 5-piece place setting has all you need, whether you are setting a simple table and only use the fork, knife and spoon, or if you need something more formal that calls for the addition of a salad fork and soup spoon. Most of our patterns are exclusive and add unique style to the table. Made from forged or stamped stainless steel, our flatware is available in a style to fit almost every taste from traditional to casual to modern in a variety of finishes including mirror, satin, gold, rose gold, silver and even black. Whether you enjoy a utensil that is light and nimble or has a little heft, you will discover silverware you love at a variety of prices that will feel good in the hands of you and your family for many years to come.
