Coated tablecloths are so easy to clean, perfect for dining with children and entertaining during the holidays and beyond. Many of you are familar with our acrylic-coated tablecloths from the French brands Vent du Sud and Le Cluny, but did you know we also carry coated tablecloths from an American company?

Petal Pushing follows a long tradition of textile making in India. Just like Provençal linens, their designs are inspired by the flowers and colors found in nature. These beautiful products of nature are carved into individual blocks, which are hand-printed onto the fabrics.

Petal Pushing products are made with care, and are eco-friendly and fair trade products as well; fabrics are Azo-free and machine-washable. The tablecloths we carry are coated with polyurethane for easy care (similar to the acrylic coating used by other brands). We also offer tote bags and scarves in coordinating prints.

Thanksgiving is the time when everyone comes together to break bread, give thanks for life’s blessings, and kick off the holiday season. It’s the top travel holiday in America. How many will be coming to your home this year? Be prepared to set a beautiful table with a French tablecloth from I Dream of France. Whether you need a longer cloth to cover your table with its leaves in place, or a square or round cloth to fit a secondary table, we’ve got you (and your table) covered.

Make Cleanup Easier with Acrylic and Teflon

An acrylic-coated tablecloth wipes clean to welcome children at the table, yet is beautiful to please the adult eye. A teflon-coated cloth helps spills bead up before sinking into the cloth. Choose either to ease your workload on the big day. (Save your energy for shopping and football.)

Toile de jouy table linens are some of our bestsellers, but did you know the history of toile? According to Wikipedia, toile became an English word in the year 1561. In French, “toile” is a much older word meaning fabric. The famous toile de jouy style of fabric, depicting country scenes in one color on a white or off-white background, was created during the 18th century and is attributed to the town of Jouy-en-Josas (hence the name) near Versailles and just southwest of Paris. Toile decorating fabric has been in fashion ever since — a classic that never goes out of style!

Here are some toile de jouy table linens available for sale from I Dream of France!
