Good Questions: Protecting a Tabletop with Placemats?

I have a round dining table (Room & Board Axis in walnut) and my toddler is DE-stroying the lovely wood. I don't want to cover it in glass because I'll lose the texture of the wood under the reflections, so I've been using placemats. Trouble is, standard rectangular placemats are ridiculous to use on a round table. I know that specially shaped placemats for round tables EXIST...but are there any out there that don't look like they're from the dollar store? For an idea of the color scheme/styling we tend towards...we have this Agnes and Hoss Roots chandelier hanging over the table. Any suggestions? -Kristyn
