Tablecloths are cool again. That's right, they're not just for special occasions. Runners, table linens, and placemats can change the feel of a kitchen or dining space. Match your decor, buy a few in the same color to rotate between washes, or even choose a material to match the season (we like linen for the warmer months, just like clothes). Tablecloths shield your table from stains, scratches and rings, and we've got you covered for the best options out there. See below for our picks to soften and spruce up your dining table.
