    The Hunt for the Perfect Table Runner

    As textile design becomes more and more adventurous, it can still be surprisingly difficult to find a stylish table runner. The big brands may release only a handful of patterns, and if you’re not a fan of them, your search continues. Even when offering a range of colors, retailers sometimes still manage to leave the season’s hottest hues out of the fun. This fall, colors such as teal, wine and deep grey are all the rage, yet some of these shades are (very) slowly finding their way to the table. We’ve searched high and low to bring you the table runner finds below. From basic solids to trendy patterns (and even a few DIY favorites), get ready to plan your next tablescape…

    Solid Staples

    So you’re looking for a table runner in a solid hue… Hopefully the color of your dreams is available! We’ve included an array of shades in the offerings that follow. But boy, is it tricky to find one place that carries a thorough variety. If you can’t find what you want, you can always dye a basic white runner. If you’re short on time, hopefully you won’t have to…

    Let’s get started with Crate & Barrel’s Grasscloth Table Runners, available in Ruby Red, Orange, Mustard, Green, Aqua Blue, Corsair Blue, Violet Purple, Brindle Brown, White and Graphite Grey.

    Interesting Patterns

    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. In fact, many design houses offer interesting napkins and tea towels while stopping short of runners. A helpful tip: visit Etsy. This online marketplace is filled with artisans who have access to unique fabrics. For example, we’re loving the plus sign pattern featured on this table runner from Etsy shop KESS InHouse:

    Clever Solutions

    Finell offers an innovative, durable table runner solution: 3D silicone placements that combine to form a runner! If you’re on a tight budget, these selections may be a stretch, but they’re well worth the investment. 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):
