If you follow textile design and you’re interested in hunting down table runners in some of the latest patterns you may be surprised by how long it takes new motifs to filter down from pillows and sheets to tabletop textiles.
Last but not least HGTV‘s Rustic Twig Table Runner brings a bit of nature to your tabletop making a festive statement for events and holidays such as Thanksgiving:
Not only is silicone easy to clean it’s heat-resistant. In other words the runner segments can double as trivets. Below we see the magic of Facet in Grey (first as a placemat then as a runner made from combined placemats):
You can borrow from the hues of your garden or even colors that represent fall to give the table a stunning yet natural look. Themes such as rustic farmhouse and even organic work best here.

There are always cheaper alternatives around but we suggest you buy the best table you can afford as this will help you reduce costs in the long run. Adding a small natural-edge bench crafted from the same wood as the table a beautiful credenza or buffet in a different wooden finish or even just a small side table in the corner can give the room a more curated look.
