Fine Table Linens for Summer – linen tablecloth selections by designer Lillian Pikus

Set your table for spring with my fine table linen selections for the coming season. Warm weather is just around the corner, and that in itself is reason to celebrate! Take the best of the season – a breath of fresh air; a blush of color; budding flowers and foliage – and kick it up a notch on your well-dressed table. I’m thinking crisp whites, vibrant color and leaf motifs at every turn!

Crisp and Clean
Whether you’re celebrating spring with an indoor gathering or an alfresco feast, nothing welcomes the warm weather like crisp, white linen. I love the fine Hemstitched Table Linens for its clean look done in elegant bright white. The Hemstitched Tablecloth is embellished with a double row of hemstitching, and is woven of 100 percent machine-washable linen. This luxurious tablecloth is available in a variety of sizes, and ranges in price from $110 to $192 at Williams Sonoma.

Featuring a tulip pattern in orange/yellow or orange/green Jaquard, the collection includes napkins, place mats, table cloths and table runners. These 100-percent-cotton table linens are machine washable and dryable, available at Bodrum Linens.

Leaf Motif
The leaf motif is back, and with it come the blossoms, the blooms, the sweetest fruit of spring and summer! Fun, flirty and friendly, Mother Nature’s motifs are a favorite of mine in any season.

Inspired by French Provencal linens, the Provence Tablecloth features a trio floral pattern, layered and hand-screened on cotton in India, atop a crisp white background. For authenticity with a contemporary flair, I love the Provence Tablecloth from Williams-Sonoma.
