You never know where you’re going to find inspiration or something interesting, I had to go all the way to the Netherlands to stumble across Chilewich in a store in Amsterdam. Chilewich is an American manufacturer of placemats, table runners, napkins, rugs, and window shades made from wonderful textiles and designed by Sandy Chilewich. Sandy and her husband, Joe Sultan, are the team behind this successful company producing beautiful, modern looking products. I love the look and feel of the Chilewich placemats, they are what first caught my eye in a display in the Amsterdam store, they are sleek, chic and very attractive. Sandy has been producing her tabletop line since 2000 and it has changed the way tables are dressed in both homes and restaurants. Join me for a look at some of the placemats and runners from Chilewich and check out their website for more products and information. Enjoy!!!
There are a ton of great looking choices in the Bamboo Collection, this is the Amber Oval.
This is also a Bamboo mat in a Mandarin Rectangle.
There’s a large selection of round placemats in Bamboo, this one is in Lapis.
This is Amber, also in Bamboo but a rectangle.
There are six different colorways of the striped placemats in the Color Tempo collection.
This mat is from the Basketweave collection, the color is Bark.
Their runners are 14 X 72, this is an example in Amber.
This Cranberry Bamboo Runner will be great for all the upcoming Fall and Winter holidays.
I love this collection of Placemats and Runners called Crayon. You could get the Crayon Runner then mix solid colored placemats with it for a different look.
This Grey is from the Plaid Line of placemats and table runners, love the contemporary look of a timeless pattern like plaid.
Words are my own.
