Long place mats (runners) are the Italian way to set a table run these over the width of your table to create 2 place settings across from each other. Accent with same colored napkins or use an alternating color.
The TDC Zodiaco Solid Long Placemat features bright colors that stand out vividly. In the Busatti weaving factory, every single thread of fabric is dyed before weaving, granting a vivid, long lasting, and resistant luminosity as well as a higher wear value of the fabric. Centuries of experience have taught us how to spot quality, which shows itself in our careful selection of the raw materials.
This table runner, "Cavaliere" in Italian, can be matched with other colorful runners and napkins of the same fabric or with other jacquard or geometrical patterns, for a unique and personalized setting.
WHAT IS A “CAVALIERE”?
The sense of the classical term Cavaliere (knight) is common to most people but the meaning in the decoration field is less known.
A cavaliere ia a fabric stripe which, covering a table on the width, gives rise to a setting for two. Basically a cavaliere is a wider and shorter runner extending from one side to the other on the width of a table allowing a set up for two, four, six and at the same time to show the beauty of a table. We could also say it's a long placemat for two.
The beauty of the cavaliere is in the versatility of its use: cavalieri can be of the same fabric and same color, in mix match colors, in different finishes and in assorted patterns to create innovative table settings.
They are perfect for luxurious tables, which would be a pity to cover with a tablecloth, and for counters or for design furniture. Decorating with cavalieri gives more space to fantasy and creativity and allows to decorate with elegance and freshness.
