Elegant Table Mats - Aubergine - NEW


Set of 4 Mats (Gift Boxed)  Matching Coasters available on request.  (£16.95 per box of 4; £25 per box of 6)

I wouldn't be without these beautiful table mats in my table-laying armoury - not just for entertaining but, for every day use too!

Having them in several colours, I choose which ones to use according to the seasons, the weather, the colour of the flowers that I'm putting on the table, the vibe or atmosphere I want to create, or the tablecloth I might be using.

This stylish AUBERGINE colour is perfect for any time of year. I like using it with zingy lime greens as well as more suble shades of mauve/purple, and reds.

Presented in a stylish box, these mats make lovely wedding presents, as well as original house gifts for weekend hosts.
