We have a new design from Pimpernel! It is called Parisian Scene.

This very Parisian set of placemats is as durable as it is beautiful. Pimpernel’s superior quality placemats (and coasters) use a thick board which is topped with a unique art print and is totally sealed with a high quality lacquer finish that is both stain and heat resistant. It is then finished with a hard wearing cork back to protect precious furniture.
