About the Designer
Architects Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Ronn, are deeply rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition – which they honor and refine. According to Jonas and Kasper good design meets real needs and satisfies all senses: A classic, recognizable shape with a new, original twist that calls for attention. A surprising, little detail, or a new material enticing you to touch the product, smell it, or enjoy the sound when you put it on the table. Norm brings function and beauty together, always adding that little extra in pursuit of timelessness and soul.

A Wool Alternative That Doesn't Skimp On Design or Class
Lilac from Vancouver, BC– Verified Buyer
With our mix-and-match brightly coloured dining chairs, it was important that we had placemats that didn't push the look of our great room into chaos. We ordered 8 of these minimalist style placemats. We like the luxury and look of wool, but need a wool-alternative and I am happy to report these are perfect- not cheap or yucky looking. The rectangle shape of the placemats offer enough space for dinner plates AND glassware which makes it sooo much easier for our guests to "respect the wood". However, on our smaller table which is 3.5 feet in diameter, the placemats are a little big and in order to fit four people together at our round table, the placemats must be overlapped on the corners (they layer easily and don't curl or flip up because they have a good, solid weight). On our rectangular dining table, the fit just fine. I was worried from the photos that the white stitching would be flimsy, but these are well-made. Crumbs come off well, dried food flakes off easily without evidence.
Not what I expected, but durable and great!

I was looking for a traditional felt placemat, and I ordered these before fully reading the description! These are made of synthetic and not wool, and while they have the appearance of felt, they feel a bit different - a bit rougher and kind of springy. What I do love about these is that they are pretty easy to clean - you can wipe them with a cloth, or even use a textured sponge to get out bigger messes. I've had them for 2 months now and they still look as good as new. Great value for the price as well!
Nice thicker placemat

The felt is pretty thick so it maintains its shape well. The placemat is a nice size too. Clean modern appearance with a more casual feel due to the material, soft corners and stitching on the edge.
Nice modern placemats

We liked them so much we bought the woven basket to go with the placemats.

They are hefty but the color is rich and they look nice against natural oak table.
