2015 Collection: New Tablecloth Designs from Le Jacquard Francais

We are so lucky to be able to spread the word about this amazing collection, and to also have these tablecloths available now on our website.

Le Jacquard Francais has again created a note-worthy collection, both in elegance and design and also functionality. Several of their new 2015 tablecloths have a matte-acrylic finish on the top which is resistant to spills and pretty much anything. You never have to place this tablecloth in the washing machine (but you can), and you only use a sponge to clean. That's it! It's also difficult to tell the 100% cotton cloths from the acrylic-coated cloths, in person or in photographs, until you actually touch them.

They have many colorful and spring-awakening combinations, several calm neutrals, more contemporary, and several tablecloth designs that bridge the traditional and modern. I really love the photography here, they do a lovely job getting the mood just right. 

Take a peek at the gorgeous designs and let me know what you think by commenting below. Can you tell the "wipe-off" tablecloths from the cotton or linen tablecloths? I can't.

With elegant china, silverware and glassware collections, R.H. Ballard provides the makings for an inspired dinner table. The shop highlights owners Robert and Joanie Ballard's Francophile tastes with goods such as Napoleonic bee glasses and French finishing salt. One facet doesn't stray too far from Virginia, though: The downstairs art gallery features works from local artists.
