Placemats often feel just like too much for us, but if a table is simple and large enough, the need and style can be well received. Far from simple, these rubber black "lace" placemats would adorn any table, making a serious statement. Maybe one in the middle hosting a centerpiece would work if a full place setting seems too over the top. What do you think: Best for "afternoon tea parties, champagne breakfasts, or just everyday use"?? Available as a set of 4 for $10.95 from Design My World.
