New York Gift Fair Tabletop Delights

The New York Gift Fair offered so much terrific tabletop that it’s hard not to share just one more post on the beautiful linens and mats I saw. One company who had exhibited before but I was not familiar with is NYC based Tina Chen. Simple and elegant designs were marked by wonderful detailing and understated chic. From her two color wide borders

A brand new line to the States introduced at the show was La Gallina Matta (for ordering, write [email protected]). Made in Italy, these lovely linen placemats are coated and finished with tailored borders, embroidered in mercerized cotton. The coating makes them stain and wrinkle resistant, spills just beading up on the surface – a wonderful discovery for holiday entertaining!

Monogramming makes for an elegant and personal presentation.
