Sure, we?re big fans of casual potlucks. Sometimes we even allow plastic containers on our table. But when we prepare a nice dinner party, we prefer a look that makes us as proud as the carefully planned menu.
Case in point: Huddleson Linens, a collection of refined tablecloths, runners, place mats and napkins made from imported Italian linen and dreamed up by Tim Gledhill, a former staffer at luxury floor-covering concern, the Rug Company.
But which Huddleson to select? How about Lovebirds, which features little winged creatures flitting across it? Or Anfa Blue, with its restrained Moroccan tile border print? Or Seagram, inspired by Mark Rothko?s 1950s murals for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York?
Priced from $30 to $535, all are easy to order online and, best of all, machine washable. No matter what the menu, with Huddleson Linens we bet we?ll hear admiring murmurs at our next soiree.
