WD80010 - Garden of Delight Runner & Placemats« Return to product
Oct 31, 2019 | Posted By Alynn from Mesa, AZ United States
The birds, flowers and branches are pure colors in the photo making for a crystal clear pattern, however, green threads bleed through everything in the actual place mats so the patterns appear out of focus. I've been looking at these place mats for a while before finally deciding to purchase them as a gift. They're not good enough to give away, and I didn't want to pay or hassle with the return process, so I kind of feel stuck with them. Not up to this company's usual standard.

This is my second order for these placemats: now I have eight and they are just as lovely as the first set.

Lovely tapestry, beautifully made, vivid colors on these placemats. I was so happy with them that I ordered 4 more immediately.
Beautiful but badly shrink
Oct 25, 2018 | Posted By Martha from Olney, MD United States
If you plan to use these as decorative pieces, then you'll love them. I washed the placemats, and the lining shrank much more than the tapestry piece, making them unusable as placemats.

Heavy duty lined fabric, not the cheap stuff!
Apr 26, 2018 | Posted By Jean Taylor from Johnston City, IL United States
I have been wanting this table runner for years and finally decided to treat myself and ordered it. It's just beautiful and the tapestry colors are so rich! It's heavy with a lining and really dresses up my dining room. It is well worth the money for such a high quality piece.
Pretty, But Shrank

I ordered the runner and several sets of the placemats.They are pretty, but when I washed them on cold and air dried them they shrank badly.

I have wanted these place mats for a while. I was careful when I washed them, but you still have to stretch them. They do not lay flat.

As nice as pictured. I am happy with the company. Offer really neat items.
Beautiful colours, perfect for spring

These are gorgeous and made of HEAVY material, so good for decoration, but also use as they WILL protect a wood table from hot plates.

Love the placemats, material is tapestry type. Colors, green, midnight blue, absolutely beautiful. Wish I could find this material. Would use it to recover a chair I have. Service fast, packed well.

I purchased these placemats for a Game of Thrones themed dinner party. I knew from the pictures that they would be pretty, but I had no idea that they would be as gorgeous and expensive looking as they are. They have the look of lovely, old tapestry, and we'll use them for a lot more than this particular party. Thank you GaelSong for offering such amazing products at remarkably reasonable prices.

This is such a lovely runner...I also like that it is made in N.C.

This runner is so beautiful. I have been looking for a runner with these colors and style for my high buffet cabinet in my entry way for quite a while. I have seen this in the catalog, however for some reason I thought it was just about the placemats so I never really paid much attention. Im so sorry it took me a while to realize the runner wasn't just part of the decor for the picture, better late than never. If you are contemplating on ordering this, do it!!! You will happy you did.
Authentic William Morris Design
Dec 1, 2016 | Posted By Penelope from Bangor, ME United States
I love this table runner. The design is authentically William Morris and the execution of it is nicely executed in an attractive muted color tapestry. Looking at it makes my heart sing.

Quality and beauty. I like that. It's lined and long. Something that can be passed down.

What a find! Beautiful color and workmanship at a great price . Really makes my dining room!

The color and quality are even better than the image in the catalog. Rich hues and high quality craftmanship, like a piece of art on my dining table. The length is perfect for a large standard table, hangs beautifully.

It is more blue than green like the other reviewers said, however, it's prettier w/more blue. It looks really good on my mom's darker dining room table.

I really like the vintage look of this runner. It was a bit longer than I anticipated but that's ok. (It helps to read the description.)I have the piece on my mission style furniture and it looks great.
Dec 18, 2015 | Posted By Thomas Mabon from Washington, DC United States
Your catalog makes the runner look green. The runner I received was predominantly blue. This was a bit disappointing.
Dec 10, 2015 | Posted By Tammy S from Lehi, UT United States
This table runner is absolutely gorgeous and fits right in w our decor. I am more than satisfied w the quality and how it looks in our home.

These placemats were exactly what I'd expected--lovely tapestry-like design and textures, perfect size and great quality. I also received them quickly.
Wonderful Runner and mats

This table runner and placemat set are above my expectations. they lend a sophisticated air to the table.
Mar 3, 2015 | Posted By Bonnie from Lambertville, NJ United States
The table runner is beautiful - very high quality. Only problem is that it looked like it had green in it in the catalog, but in reality it's more blue. Have to use it in a different place than planned.

Everything was perfect!
These set the tone

I can use these multi season, as they are rich with detail and color variation. I purchased the runner first, then the placemats. For early fall, they look wonderful on top of a golden tablecloth, and winter paired with midnight blues. They will also allow me to use alternate dinnerware colors. These are lovely, lined tapestries for the table, and the runner could also be used on a buffet table. Thank you GaelSong.

Very nice placements. Can't wait to see what the runner looks like, as it is currently on backorder.

These placemats are so colorful and well made. I know I will be happily displaying them for years to come :)
Don't dry the placemats!
Mar 12, 2014 | Posted By Kelly from Mahopac, NY United States
I love the pattern and the weight of these placemats but DO NOT dry them for even a minute. Stretch and hang them, or they will shrink - the backing differently from the front - and no amount of ironing will make them lie flat again.
Mar 1, 2014 | Posted By Anna from Plymouth, MI United States
The table runner is beautiful, and long enough to lap over the ends of my 6' table. But it doesn't lie completely flat. I may have to wash and iron it to see if that helps.

beautiful. looks great on dining room table. very well made.
Excellent quality, worthy purchase
Dec 17, 2013 | Posted By Jason from Maple City, MI United States
I don't normally buy this sort of product without seeing it first in person -- I worry about the color difference and the craftsmanship being deceptive in a photo. Because I wanted this as a special Christmas gift for my husband, though, I took a chance. I don't regret it at all! The shipping was fast and the table runner is exquisite -- just as the picture promises. It's very well-made and should be able to stand up to frequent use.

I had been looking for a runner that would go with my decor and this one fit the bill. It is long enough to hang off my table by about 6-8 inches AND looks great.

I love the tapestry runners! I bought two one for the buffet and the other for the sofa table. Nice touch!
Gorgeous but one problem...
Apr 19, 2012 | Posted By evenstar1013 from Fairchild Afb, WA United States
I received the Garden of Delight tapestry for my birthday a few years ago and it's completely exquisite. Since it hangs in our dining room I've had my eye on the placemats for a while, and I eventually ordered them for myself for Christmas. They are just incredible, both artistically and in terms of quality. I have four small kids and they haven't faded nor do they show any kind of wear at all (and they get washed a lot!), with one exception - the material on the back of the placemats shrank so much in the wash that I'm going to have to take it off and sew something pre-shrunk on there. I washed according to the directions, in cold water and then air dried but the backing shrank about an inch in every direction, so they don't lie flat. I see that as a minor inconvenience however because they are so gorgeous and of obviously high quality in every other area. Even with this issue, I would definitely buy these again! I love them!
So happy to get this!

I've been wanting and admiring this runner for a long time but didn't want to splurge on myself. My daughter gave me the runner and placemats for Christmas after I emailed my wishlist on several sites. I was so happy to see she had chosen this. It is just as beautiful as I'd imagined. Such a unique and lush pattern. I'm anxious to put it on my table after I take my Christmas setting off in a few days.

Sep 9, 2010 | Posted By Claudia Bliss from Anderson, SC United States
I ordered the Garden of Delight table runner and place mats for our new table. I loved the colors and tapestry weave of these items. They are an excellent quality and like nothing I've seen elsewhere. I also love the nature theme design----and believe it or not, they coordinate perfectly with a 4' painting I have in my dining room. All in all you can count on being very happy if you decide to get them. Only thing I wish--would be the yellow color a bit stronger....but they are great!
Mar 2, 2010 | Posted By Jennifer from Minneapolis, MN United States
I bought the runner and 2 sets of placemats - they are gorgeous! The colors and pattern are lovely and the workmanship is wonderful. PLUS Made in USA!! I'm ordering another set of placemats.

This is gorgeous. I'm using it to spruce up the top of a non-recessed radiator and it looks fabulous!! - especially with candlesticks and ornaments.
