Messy Tablecloth: Love It or Hate It?

This morning, a friend of mine sent me the link to this Messy tablecloth by Polish group AZE design. The plain white tablecloth is embroidered with outlines of plates, cutlery, a cheese board, serving spoons, and more. I think it would be fun to try and put dishes in the right place — except for maybe that spilled wine glass — but I don't know if I'd actually use it as my main tablecloth. What do you think? Would you use it?

I would be too worried to put plates, etc on the images. Like it was their spot.

I'm kind of embarrassed to say I love this after seeing how much most of you all hate it ;-) I think its fun. We are not into formal dining and this would fit with our type of entertaining.

I would never be able to use that. It would drive me nuts. I'm not only a neat freak, but everything has to be lined up straight and evenly, so that would have me in a panic.

I'm undecided... I have issues with tablecloths. I just recently bought my first real dining room table, before it I just had an old formica table that used to be in my grandma's kitchen in the 60's. So, anyway, I'm so proud of my new 'adult' dining room table that I can't bear to cover it up - even though I'm afraid of scratches. So while I absolutely love the unique and creative messy table cloth, I dont think i'd use it because I have issues with tablecloths themselves.

I don't think It'll be too practical but it would make a good portfolio piece for a designer.

Amusing, sorta artsy, but I wouldn't buy it. My family doesn't really use tablecloths anyway.

I agree with PartySugar ~ My first thought was that it would be great to use this tablecloth for a murder mystery dinner.

I don't really like it. When I entertain, I like to make it nice and put a lot of work into it. I'm sure some people would think this was fun, but I still like my table to look elegant.

This is fiendishly clever. I agree with Anniemation - it's cute, but not really for use at home. Maybe at an artsy restaurant?

as an art piece, it's relatively cute. but anyone using it in their home needs a taste tune-up.

It's kind of funny. Would be nice as a silly casual tablecloth. The spilled wine threads would just be begging for trouble though. I'm sure my cat would immediately find it, swat it, and then latch on...causing the whole thing to come off the table.

Wow, i've never seen a tablecloth like that before. It's creative but I wouldn't use it. I would want to use something more elegant :)

Haha, I think it's kind of funny! I doubt I'd ever buy it, but I'm getting a kick out of it.

No, I think it looks horrible. I wouldn't even use it for a casual dinner party. It looks tacky.
