I do love a good placemat. They’re perfect not only for those inevitable kiddy food spills, but also for highlighting a great table (or drawing attention away from one that’s not so great).
I’ve had my eye on these ones made by Modern Twist for quite a while, and now they’re available locally through Until. My favourite is the ‘Pond – Black on Clear’; it can even be reinvented as a reusable colouring sheet when it’s not being used as a placement.
Notably, there are two designs by Matte Stephens of Matteart Etsy fame, which will deliver some creature themed wit to your table.
Modern Twist placemats are $29.95 each plus shipping, from Until.
