It’s finally here, the Grande Opening of my shop! Please let me introduce you to my textile invention, the Connecting Table Runners for tables with leaves. They are a practical, beautiful, and original gift for yourself or others and I’m pleased to offer them to all the lovely hosts who care about making a house a home. Here’s a little more of how the dream became a reality.
How I came up with the idea
I always wondered why dining sets were so expensive and how come they didn’t have properly fitted table textiles to match? I mean, when we buy a cute outfit, we want the right accessories to go with it right? So I thought of a table runner that would adjust using buttons (single sided) and magnets (reversible). After many attempts using different connections, I found these two worked the best and were also aesthetically pleasing.
What is the Process?
I source many of the details in US, which supports other small businesses including the gold medallions, buttons, magnets, fabric and labor! Costwise, it is cheaper to find resources outside the US, but I wanted to keep that to a minimum. I feel we have the technology and skills to make them here, so that is the ethical thing to do. I care more about quality than quantity and want this product to be used in homes for years after years, dinners after dinners.
Research and Development
I applied for a Provisional Patent myself after much research and I will determine later this year if I want to pursue and non-provisional. But I find it amazing how this product is so simple, yet isn’t on the shelves anywhere, not even Etsy.
The Perfect Gift
It’s an ideal gift for someone who loves to entertain or for someone who has everything. This is a go-to option for people who don’t enjoy shopping as it comes beautifully packaged and the receiver will really be thrilled to have something so unique and useful. I offer three different styles for Holiday and Everyday including a Reversible Thanksgiving Gold and Christmas Crimson, Beach House Table Edition in Sandy Beach with Mother of Pearl Buttons, and a Farm House Table Edition in Dusty Blue and Ivory with Agoya Shell Buttons.
