90″ Round Coated Tablecloths by Le Cluny

You thought it was impossible to find a 90″ round coated tablecloth? Think again! The ever popular brand Le Cluny uses their French made coated cotton fabric, and by sewing two panels together are able to make oversize tablecloths. The seem is inconspicuous and the result is a tablecloth big enough to cover and protect most round or square tables.

All the rooms are glamorous in gold and white, with an eclectic mix of midcentury and more traditional furnishings. My favorite details are the paper lanterns in the kitchen and the colorful pottery in the dining room, not to mention the low bookcase in the living room.

Here are some gold and white items from I Dream of France that would mix well in this chic Paris apartment:

Many people don’t realize when they buy a large round table that it may be hard to find a tablecloth to fit. Customers ask us for oversized round tablecloths all the time. Here are the styles we currently have in larger round sizes. We are always getting new and different styles in, so check back or email us if you have any questions.

We can also order larger rounds in the Le Cluny French Country Collection for those who want a French coated tablecloth. The Le Cluny large rounds are made with a linear pattern fabric (the same used in rectangular tablecloths) sewn in two panels, with one seam offset and well hidden.

Large round tablecloths from Couleur Nature are 90 inches in diameter and will fit best on a table up to 74 inches in diameter. These designs are block printed by hand on cotton fabric.

–Brett & Jean-Michel

Every spring, we look forward to the local home and garden tours in Orange County, California, because we get the opportunity to create tablescapes for some of the homes. This year was no exception. I had the pleasure of making a tablescape at a residence in the North Tustin Hills for the Tustin Garden Club Tour.  The night before this tour, we had a late-season rain shower, and the morning was cloudy and cool before the afternoon opened up into beautiful sunshine.

Here are some photos, followed by links to the products I used from I Dream of France.
