I actually purchased these as a gift, but kept them because they are so cute. The fabric is strong & thick with tiny ridges in it. The design is a nice plaid with great colors, and goes with many types of decor ranging from country to modern. I am using these with grey plates & they look fabulous, but I could also see them with blue, white, green, yellow, brown, black or many other colors of dinnerware as well.
my table is black and it doesn't look good against a black table; next time, i will want to see placemats in person before i buy. that being said, quality was fine. it was as describe. very modern looking -- which was too severe for my tastes.
These placemats are beautiful as a way to add color to a seldom used dining room table. I would not recommend them for a daily use placemat. But they certainly add elegant interest to my modern glass table.
