While you're likely used to the texture of linen beneath your dinner plate, consider the Embroidery Table Skin by deJongeKalff. This unconventional covering has the feel of silicon rubber, yet it has a number of features that make it superior to the familiar fabric option.

The material is so thin that it's stretchy and capable of hanging and pleating like drapery; however, not a single crease or wrinkle will form in this contemporary tablecloth. Furthermore, the surface is resistant to spills and stains, making it incredibly easy to clean, plus it effectively guards soft wood from cutlery dents and hot pot bottoms. If this is all sounding far too practical for you, this version of the embossed Droog Table Skin features an inverted Renaissance-era design from an Albrecht Dürer carving.
