Could anything be more welcoming than a carefully set table filled with modern designer tableware. Whether it’s the holidays or a special occasion, sitting down at a table carefully set with our designer tableware is a moment to treasure.

Finnish Design Shop offers you a wide choice of contemporary tableware sets for entertaining and dining: dinnerware, drinkware, flatware, serveware and table linens.

Table linens set the scene

Choose your favorite tablecloths, placemats, and napkins from our selection of table linens. These will become the backdrop for your dishes, glasses, and cutlery. Whether you choose to use a patterned tablecloth or no tablecloth, treat this as the foundation for the rest of your decoration. You can build from there. Keep in mind any other home decoration in the room.

What kind of tablecloth or placemats to use:

• For special occasions, a seasonal or patterned tablecloth is a simple way to create your preferred atmosphere
• Simple tablecloths can be used to draw attention to patterned dishes or ornate flatware
• If you own a dining table in lacquered oak or walnut or have a two-color table by Hay, your table could be the focal point for your tableware. In this case, forego the tablecloth use placemats.

Choose from modern minimalist dinnerware, classic patterned dinnerware, and unique designer dinnerware by Nordic brands like Iittala, Marimekko and Arabia.
