The fabric of this table cover is called "Calissons" because of tiny touches of identical color repeated on a plain background. This type of print is typically Provencal. It is available in many colors and combined with an "Olivettes" border of green and ripe leaves and olives. The frieze is itself surrounded by a small geometric border on both sides, matching the calissons. Sometimes, the border is tone-on-tone, but often plays on complementarity with respect to the central color. In both cases, you'll like the simplicity and freshness for this collection leads you directly into a field of olive trees in the Alpilles.
Good to know: there is a cheerful and country version of Calissons called “Fleurettes”. Please have a look to it. You may like it also.
Our composition tips
If you use this mat for a coffee table, you may buy the matching table runner that dresses a table rather long, rectangular or oval, a dining room table, for example. You can complete with placemats, quilted and just as easy to maintain, to create a delightful lunch area. And always keep this "Provencal countryside" inspiration which is the charm of Calissons.
And always for the everyday, why not put Calissons in the kitchen, with bread baskets, gloves and potholders? The large selection of colors will guide you to harmonize all the useful linen in one of the rooms in the house where you spend the most time.
Also, use the printed Calissons cloths to settle a sunny lunch on a balcony or terrace. You could alternate the colors and play on the frieze in positive / negative. For instance, set different placemats each time to create a dynamic ambiance. Your table mat will nicely adorn a serving table set by your side.
