Country Road Napery

Summer simply isn’t summer without long, lazy outdoor lunches or lingering dinner parties. And there is no finer complement to open-air dining than bright, cheerful napery. We can’t get enough of these woven placemats and napkins from Country Road. Made of 100% cotton, they come in a bright mustard that almost bounces off the table. This particular shade of yellow featured prominently in our 2012 Trend Report is a hue to embrace this year. It's a rather unusual colour that somehow manages to be both subdued and striking. Just imagine these juxtaposed with big, bold botanicals as a centrepiece, another trend that’s making a comeback. In fact, we think these cotton creations would look good combined with just about anything. Mustard yellow napery is available from Country Road, Woolworths. The napkins are sold in a set of four for R150 and the woven placemats sell for R70 each. Text: Dayle Kavonic
