Placemats, also known as American placemats, lend themselves perfectly for quick and casual meals. They can feature a host of shapes, colors and patterns depending on the taste and style of the house. Placemats in plastic with round or rectangular shape are among the most used, anti-stain and easy to clean. Placemats in fabrics are very popular too and they are chosen in coordination or in contrast with the other table textiles and accessories. The most sophisticate models are also made in wood, resin and other materials both natural and synthetic.
