Adorn Your Dining Table with Table Runners

Make every meal an elegant affair with one of the table runners from Williams Sonoma. Runners are great for creating a coordinated look and they go well with other linens such as tablecloths and cloth napkins. They come in a variety of sizes to suit your dining table.

Types of Table Runners

Runners are draped across the table to impart sophistication. There are several different types from which to choose, so it's easy to find one that works for your design style. Here are some of the runners to consider:

  • Linen Table Runners: Linen is a popular material for runners because it's lightweight and has an elegant appearance. Williams Sonoma has linen runners in a variety of colors and prints.
  • Cotton Table Runners: If you want a casual runner that's durable and easy to care for, you can't go wrong with cotton or a cotton-linen blend.
  • Plaid Table Runners: For a rustic, country-inspired table setting, consider a plaid table runner. The selection contains plaids in various colors to coordinate with your other accent items.
  • Seasonal Runners: Holiday-themed runners are an easy way to impart a festive look to your table. There are runners for every season, such as floral and bunny runners for spring and vibrant citrus-print runners for summer. You'll also find fall-inspired runners and those done in classic red and green holiday hues.
  • Solid-Color Runners: A solid runner is a simple adornment for the table that can tie a look together. You could choose a runner that matches your cloth napkins, or one that accents the color of your dinnerware. Color options range from neutrals to brights.

Coordinating a Runner with Table Decor

Create a tablescape that looks professionally designed with a runner and coordinating table decor. For example, you could start with a classic white tablecloth and drape a printed runner over it. Placemats in an accent color can be added, followed by charger plates that either complement or contrast with the placemat color. Coordinating cloth napkins in napkin rings can be placed on the plates for even more visual interest. To finish the look, add a centerpiece that matches the theme of your table setting.

Discover a wide selection of table runners at Williams Sonoma. There's something to suit every preference, whether you prefer a formal look or something more casual. You'll also find plenty of other stylish table linens, as well as dinnerware and barware for every occasion.
