Table Runners - Our Pick of the Best

Looking for a beautiful table runner? From striking bold colours to full-on glitzy designs, we’ve picked a selection of our favourite runners to decorate any table.

Whether you’re throwing a dinner party, looking for a finishing touch, or simply in need of a stylish solution to protect a dining table, a table runner is just what you need. Choosing a bejeweled design is sure to wow houseguests and enhance your tableware. If you're looking to protect surfaces try adding a textured design to make more of a style statement, rather than just a practical solution. And who says a table runner has to be restricted to a dining table? You could also use a table runner to dress your hallway console or jazz up your kitchen counter tops with a splash of colour.
