Best table runners to shop right now: from relaxed linen to glitzy embellisments

Posted by for Homeware

’Tis the season for making your dinner table look as fabulous as possible. Shop our edit of the best table runners out there.

Tablescaping has been one of the biggest interior design trends of 2020. And, although we’ve loved dressing our tables to the nines all year round (especially experimenting with dinner candles and fancy glassware), there’s no time like Christmas for making meals at home feel like a occasion. 

Runners are a fabulous way to up your dining table’s ante. Use alone on a bare table for a relaxed, rustic feel or layer on top of a tablecloth and use the opportunity to mix colours, patterns and textures. 

You can also have fun pairing it with napkins, crockery and decorative touches like vases, too.

Shop our edit of the best tablecloths to buy this season, whatever the occasion.
