Western Table Runners

A table runner is a long, narrow, decorative cloth typically used on a dining table (but they do have other uses, too, and we mention a few of these below). They can be use alone on a bare table, or in conjunction with a tablecloth. They can be subdued or bright, plain or fancy. They can be used as a stand-along featured piece, or they can tie in with the rest of the room to finish out a theme. Below are table runners for sale on Zazzle, Amazon, and eBay.

About Table Runners

As we said above a table runner is a long, narrow, decorative cloth typically used on a dining table. They can be laid across a bare table, or across a tablecloth. They are used as decoration, either as a stand-alone piece or to finish out a theme.

The traditional and still common use of a table runner is to lay it in the center of a rectangular (or square) dining table, allowing it to run lengthwise across the table from one end to the other. The ends of the table runner are usually allowed to hang over the edges of the table anywhere from 6 inches to 15 inches: It varies with the size of the table and the "look" the user prefers.

Table Runner Tips

Here are a few tips on how you can use a table runner.


Table runners typically drop off the ends of a dining table anywhere from 6 inches to 15 inches. The drop varies with the size of the table, and the look the user prefers.

...Or No Drop

There's no rule that says a table runner had to drop off the edges of the table. A table runner is a decorative element, and as such you can decorate with it as you like. A shorter table runner that doesn't drop off the edges of the table, or even that ends significantly before the edges, can look great, too.

Highlight A Centerpiece

Speaking of using shorter table runners, you can highlight a table centerpiece by using a short table runner just underneath the centerpiece.

Round Tables

Table runners are often associated with being used on square or rectangular tables. However, that doesn't mean you can't use them on round tables, too: Just place two table runners shaped like an "X" across a round table.

Other Uses

Table runners look great on other pieces of furniture besides dining tables. Try them on bedroom dressers, across the top of entertainment centers, or anywhere you would like to add a little decorating flair.
