Modern-twist has brought art to the table with these gorgeous silicone placemats. Collaborating with a wide range of independent artists, they’ve created an incredible selection of mats made from silky food-grade, hand silk-screened silicone. Meaning they’re great to the touch, won’t crease or rip and are free from any harmful chemicals. The best thing about the mats is that they’re partly transparent, meaning that you can see the natural grain of your tabletop through the design. The non-intrusive graphics are intended to enhance the beauty of your table while providing subtle visual interest that doesn’t interfere with dishes or other tabletop items. Available in botanical, nature-inspired and other beautiful patterns, the eco-chic mats all follow a minimalist aesthetic, and are designed for optimal functionality with an easy-to-clean, non-porous, germ-free surface. Modern-twist placemats are available from l’Emile et Son, Parkhurst, Joburg l-emile-et-son.com. They are sold separately for R130-R210 each, meaning that if you can’t decide on one design – you can mix and match them all!
