Friends and family know that red wine and I do not mix. This is so much so that my mother gave me some wine spot remover as a stocking stuffer one Christmas (and I actually needed to use it during Christmas dinner). Kristine Bjaadal has turned my clumsiness from a curse to a blessing with the tablecloth design of Underfull.

Exhibited by Norwegian designer Kristine Bjadaal at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010, the tablecloth first seems to be an unassuming white damask tablecloth. Once wet, the tablecloth reveals a hidden pattern of fluttering butterflies. So, instead of feeling embarrassed, the person who caused the spill feels a bit lucky. We love when design doesn't take itself too seriously.
