A number of times, I've admired these placemats at Savoy Restaurant near our office, so I snapped this pic. They are very dark, with a soft, almost organic texture that stands up nicely behind the white napkin, shiny silverware and slate black table. Chilewich makes MANY patterns and colors, but I'd have to say these are my top pick right now (I think the color is "Smoke").
