Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Elegant Linens now carries luxury table linens in over 100 different colors, making an unprecedented color palette available to the dinner-table designer this holiday season. While luxury table linens have been available in varied forms and colors before, as the luxury home textiles market continually changes to cater to a broader range of tastes, one now has more choices than ever when it comes to finding the perfect color combinations of table linens.
Among the premier linens now available in new colors, the Libeco Home line is offering one of the widest varieties of new colors. They provide the holiday table designer an unprecedented number of options to choose or combine. Considering the nuanced colors sometimes displayed in heirloom or wedding china, the new variety of luxury table linen colors available will make finding an exact match for those pieces much easier. Also consider Sferra table linens, or our wonderfully priced Bodrum linens.
The variety of colors available is not the only distinguishing factor in today's luxury table linens. Customization in terms of shapes and dimensions of table linens is also much more encompassing. Luxury table linen designers offer square, circle, and rectangle shapes for tablecloths in different sizes. Luxury table napkins may also come in different sizes, including dinner, luncheon or cocktail sizes. If one has unique table dimensions, most luxury home textiles companies will be able to use those dimensions to create a custom table linen piece. For that level of customization, one may expect a slightly higher price point and longer wait for delivery.
Custom luxury table linens have been available for decades, and the history of table linen use predates Medieval times. Linen itself was a popular fabric in Egypt during the time of the pharaohs and was used for the sacred purpose of wrapping bodies for the great beyond. In tracing the roots of table linens, a few sources also point out that Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting, The Last Supper, includes a depiction of a table spread with a classic, white table linen, demonstrating the historic significance of, as well as value placed upon, table linens. Hence, when dressing the table this season, one is following a long and beloved tradition.
Dressing the holiday table with luxury linens speaks of both honoring past traditions while creating future ones. Luxury table linens offer not only a supreme visual contribution to the dinner table, which is no doubt important, but they also add, along with heirloom china or fine silverware, a dimension of longevity to family gatherings. Luxury table linens, by the nature of their superior content and construction, will long outlast standard table linens. This lasting quality makes luxury table linens both a smart and a thoughtful investment, providing a family with an opportunity to both partake in a meaningful tradition of the past while creating a new tradition specific to that family.
Notably, luxury table linen designers are aware of the wash and wear needs of their clients, given the function that a table linen must provide and create variations in content of their luxury table linens. While some of those luxury table linens may contain 100% of one type of fabric, some luxury table linen designers will manufacture table linens with a partial poly blend to add a deeper “easy care” dimension to the table linen. Also, if one is serving a holiday dinner that has both an “adult” and a “kid” table, one can set the “kid” table with a higher poly content table linen that will better resist the potential staining that can occur within the younger dinner guest demographic.
Elegant Linens encourages their clients to measure their tables accurately when ordering both custom and standard dimension pieces, so the tablecloth or runner will have an appropriate drop. Generally, a floor-length drop equals 30 inches. A halfway drop, therefore, will measure 15 inches. Also, allow extra time for custom orders. Some custom orders may take anywhere between 4-10 weeks for delivery, depending on the vendor. With a little advance research and planning, one can enjoy receiving the perfect luxury table linen design combination for the holiday season.
