F rom the banquet halls of kings to the more humble family dining room a starched white tablecloth draped over a dinner table was once the obligatory setting for any meal. But that once domestic staple has fallen out of favour in an era of more informal, laid-back dining. With the growing vogue for stripped wooden tables and the decline in family meals, tablecloths are being bought by fewer and fewer households.
J ohn Lewis has reported a 10pc fall in sales of all tablecloths — from white linen to more everyday varieties - compared to last year. Instead those families that do eat together are increasingly using table mats and table runners to protect surface from hot dishes while leaving the rest of the wood visible. At the same time an increase in the sale of trays reflects the growing habit of individual family members eating in front of the TV or computer screen.
What customers really want is a unique experience. S himon Bokovza, chief executive of London restaurant Sushi Samba points out that tablecloths are increasingly disliked by both diners and venue owners — who are left to cope with a huge laundry bill to keep them pristine. Tablecloths were first introduced in the late medieval period when spreading a high quality white linen or cotton cloth was an important part of preparing for a feast in a wealthy household.
Over time the custom of arranging tableware on a cloth became common for people in all walks of life, except the very poorest. But, as eating habits began to change during the late sixties and seventies new table-setting styles were developed to match.
As well as replacing tablecloths with table runners and place mats on bare wooden tables, families have increasingly dispensed with silverware in favour of helping themselves from large bowls or casseroles and sharing plates.
Oct 15, · I use tablecloths for formal dinners but otherwise we just use placemats on the table. It's a formal dark wood table though, that coordinates well with the room. I don't think tablecloths are out but I also think it looks a little odd to have a table cloth on a dining room table all the time. In most cases, it depends on the state of the table: A long tablecloth instantly improves a less-than-perfect table and adds a note of elegance for a special event, like a dinner party. Exceptional tabletops require no dressing at all. I know tablecloths are basically just out of style right now. Many people have gorgeous dining tables and want to show them off. I have my great-aunt's teak dining table, which often doubles as a work station, and a one-year-old.
