Why are fine table linens important?

Table setting is an ancient art form. The earliest documentation of the practice is recorded in the Old Testament and in the writings of the Ancient Greeks.

Today, the ritual of table setting is an important way to signal care and hospitality to your guests. Exceptional touches like a high-end tablecloth work to enhance the social experience of eating. A beautifully set table can even affect how well we digest our food

Fine table linens are the first step to curating a dining table with a positive effect. Whether you are decorating for a dinner party or a cocktail reception, a beautifully upholstered dining room always stands out. 

Gorgeous table covers, luxury table runners, and fine linen napkins elevate even the simplest meal. Not to mention, a fine tablecloth can protect your dining or cocktail table from spills. Furthermore, luxury table linens are a design choice that can be switched out seasonally (or even weekly!) with very little effort. 

This autumn, luxury table linens brands are coming forward with a variety of bright patterns and colors to usher in the season with style. Beyond the traditional charcoal and sand tablecloths of past years, Fall/Winter 2022-2023 tablescapes are anything but dull. Top colorful linen brands like Le Jacquard Francais allow you to curate a table that is both elegant and fun.

What are the best brands for luxury table linens?

Classic Luxury Table Linens from Sferra and Matouk

Matouk and Sferra are two of the world's most well known luxury linen brands.

Besides just bed and bath linens, these heritage brands have their own lines of high-quality table linens with a rich history. For instance, Nancy Reagan commissioned Sferra Irish dinner napkins for the White House in 1988. The white linen napkins were hand-embroidered with a golden presidential seal. 

Brands like Sferra and Matouk are excellent "go-tos" when searching for white table linens and/or ivory table linens. 


Today, let the legacy of Sferra's luxury linens live on in your home. Sferra's table linens are made of 100% long-staple cotton with impeccable stitching and bespoke designs. Sferra tablecloths like the Itria White Tablecloth are made in a variety of sizes from small square tablecloths, round styles, and large rectangular tablecloths. 

Sferra is also well known for its cocktail table linens. Sferra Cocktail napkins are 100% linen with intricate mitered corners. White cocktail napkins like Dolce Cocktail Napkins display detailed embroidery. 

If you want to add a more colorful touch to your coffee table, the Sferra Festival Cocktail Napkins are available in over 100 colors! Don't miss out on the equally colorful Festival Dinner Napkins and Festival Placemats.

John Robshaw Table Linens

John Robshaw's textiles are inspired by the designer's travels and traditional Indian block printing methods. Fall table linens like the blue tablecloths and napkins of the Indigo Blue Table Linens collection reimagine John Robshaw's unique patterns for your table. John Robshaw's table linens are hand printed on 100% slub cotton to create a natural texture. 

Don't be afraid to mix designers! the gorgeously busy patterns of a John Robshaw placemat would look gorgeous with a crisp white tablecloth from Matouk or Sferra. 

Beautiful Tablecloths, Placemats, Napkins and More from Mode Living

Mode Living was founded by two women who met at the beginning of business school and bonded over their shared interest in entertaining. This friendship led to the creation of their business. 

This friendship and the brand philosophy of effortlessness, fun, and togetherness is evident in every product that Mode Living makes. Their beautiful tablecloths are whimsical and charming. Mode Living's woven rattan coasters and placemats add lovely texture to any tablescape.

The casual luxury of Mode Living table linens makes this brand ideal for holiday tablescapes. Metallic table linens like the Vogue Silver Table Linens and Vogue Gold Table Linens will bring perfect understated beauty to your Thanksgiving celebration.
