  • Bar Placemats: Bar design is essential as an entry to your dining and entertaining decor. Since bar surfaces often deal with spills and stains, it's surprising how people can easily overlook this focal point of style.

Consider modern geometric patterns or nature-inspired motifs such as the Tropicana Placemat that pair easily with drink coasters to highlight your home with the the latest trends.

  • Luncheon Placemats: When you are hosting a luncheon, this is a ripe opportunity to showcase your unique aesthetic for sparkling conversation starters. A classic tip is incorporating designs inspired by your favorite travel destinations for worldly charm, such as adding hand-painted Moroccan motifs or intricate Indian textiles. 


  • Table Placemats: Kim Seybert offers luxurious table placemats showcasing impeccable quality and innovative designs that fit all occasions. For elegant dinners, choose styles with delicate muted tones in luxurious materials like glass beads and silk to create an intimate atmosphere.

Matching Placemat Materials With Surfaces

While it's easy to focus on the overall beauty of your tablescape, you'll also want to choose placemats that provide ample protection for the longevity of your table. Each surface has unique needs, ranging from wood, glass, marble, and more. With expert knowledge of these materials, Kim Seybert designed an extensive range of placemats targeted for each type of table. For instance, you want to choose raffia placemats to protect and complement wooden tables similar to the Portofino Placemat. If you have a glass table, select one of the glass-beaded placemat designs that add luxury without slipping on the surface, such as the Oasis Placemat. For marble surfaces, placemats made from non-abrasive materials like fabric, or acrylic are ideal for protection against scratches and stains. From a stylistic standpoint, these materials also complement the natural essence of marble by enhancing its reflective quality and luxurious appearance.

How to Style Placemats with Dinnerware

The right tableware can complete your proper table setting. Kim Seybert's extensive collection includes tableware sets in various colors and patterns that effortlessly and endlessly match your placemats and current styles. You can create a stunning presentation by using layering techniques and themed settings.

  1.  Start with a foundational layer and the base placemat that sets the tone for your table. For example, the pearlescent finish of the Infinity Placemat creates a luxurious foundation. Due to its elegant simplicity, this placemat complements both minimalist and ornate tableware.

  2. Add the accent layer with a charger plate on top of the placemat. Choose a metallic or mirrored charger to reflect light and enhance the placemat's design. For instance, pair the Nautilus Placemat with a gold charger to amplify the sunburst in the shell's pattern.

  3. Next, you can complete the layered look with a coordinating napkin and a decorative napkin ring. A solid-colored napkin with a beaded or jeweled napkin ring, such as those in Kim Seybert's collection, can add a touch of elegance without overwhelming the placemat's design.

  4. Finally, you should select dinnerware that complements the placemat's colors and textures. Choose plates with subtle patterns or solid colors that enhance the placemat's design without clashing for a seamless look.

The Handcrafted Elegance of Dinner Placemats

As an innovator dedicated to artisanal techniques, Kim Seybert offers placemats with intricate and authentic designs discovered throughout her constant travels, such as traditional beadwork from India, Moroccan tile patterns, and the vibrant embroidery styles of Central America.
