Christmas Table Linen

Make it Merry and Bright

Have fun and keep it colourful with our Christmas table linens, because let’s face it at Christmas more is always more. Our abundance of patterns and colours are sure to spark your festive inspiration. Regardless of your current interior design style, we are sure to have something to suit your special occasion.

Candy Stripes

Christmas is a magical time; we naturally think of the classic red and white stripes reminiscent of candy canes and Santa Claus. Full of character, this bright and bold Candy Stripe Peony Table Set brings a sense of fun to a traditional Christmas colour scheme and sets the scene for your festive feast. Layer up contrasting stripes with a block red to create an elegant centrepiece that is sure to transform your table and catch the eyes of all your guests using our table runner in Ticking Stripe 01 Peony and Campbell Union Peony fabrics. Team this alongside our decorative matching placemats to add additional interest to your dining table while also protecting it from any accidental spillages, then tie it all together with striking, ticking stripe napkins.

Classic Checks

If you’re looking for something a little alternative, consider creating a cosy environment with our Kintyre Check Table Set. These warming heather and classic blue tones update your traditional Christmas tartan and are sure to set the atmosphere for a warm Christmas – even if it is snowing outside. Our Kintyre Check Dark Navy and Witton Burgundy wool fabric table runner with matching placemats provide any table with a touch of luxury and will guarantee to be pleasing to the eye even when the Brussel sprouts make an entrance. Generously sized linen napkins in our Chelsea Off White work as a beautiful accent in this set – the textural combination is a real crowd-pleaser, almost as much as those long-awaited pigs in blankets!

Bold Stripes

Black and white is a trending style in contemporary interiors. If you are seeking something less traditional, that’s modern and simplistic yet sophisticated our Ticking Stripe 2 Black Table Set could very well be what you are looking for. This table runner, placemats and napkins in monochromatic tones including our  Skye Check CharcoalAtlantic Union Black and Ticking Stripe 2 Black fabrics create a table setting that is sure to make a bold statement and complement your interiors beyond the Christmas period.

Decorate with fresh springs of eucalyptus, red berries and holly on Christmas day along with beautiful ceramics to complete the look.
