Much like shoes and handbags, you can never have too many placemats — or any table linens, for that matter. They're simply an effortless accessory that dresses your dining room up or down. Inviting the parents over? Go classic with simple white, perhaps a monogram. Having a casual brunch with friends? Try the Elsewares French Floral Placemats ($19.99, reduced from $26). Their bold poppy print will bring personal style to your table, while their dishwasher-safe polypropylene material makes them durable enough for everyday use. Available in burgundy, red, or black and white, you can buy all three and mix it up, depending on how rouge or noir you might be feeling each day.
