Summer dining is here, bringing with it the joys of dining al fresco with friends and family, and of course, a few new tabletop favorites from France. Here’s what we’re loving this year:


Outdoor dinner table setting with linen tablecloth, bottles and glasses of wine, bread, fruit, cutlery, napkins and flowers.


Start with a linen tablecloth from Thieffry        

Delicious natural food calls for a natural linen tablecloth from Roubaix, France. Each piece is made in Europe from flax to finish and is show-stoppingly beautiful.




Ramekin, stainless steel Laguiole spoon, fork, knife and coffee spoon on linen tablecloth.

Now put out your seagrass or rattan glassware

Perfect for casual dining outdoors, our seagrass and rattan glasses are absolutely stunning, and easy to keep clean. The seagrass adds an extra layer of protection, important when dining outside!

Don’t forget Thieffry linen napkins!


Go the extra mile, be the person with matching tablecloth and napkins, we won’t judge you! These oversized napkins are as luxurious as their tablecloth counterpart, don’t pass on these.
