20 Round Tablecloths for Summer Entertaining

Shopping for a round tablecloth? Today’s post is for you! While many retailers carry tablecloths of the rectangular variety, it’s not always easy to hunt down a round covering for your favorite table. Below we’re sharing some of our top picks for round tablecloths, as well as plenty of inspirational photos to guide you as you select the perfect piece for your dining room, breakfast nook or patio

Purchasing a Round Tablecloth

When shopping for a round tablecloth, choose a quality piece that’s easy to clean. We’re talking machine washable, folks! We love the classic look of offerings by Restoration Hardware. The three tablecloths that follow all come from Crate & Barrel, and their classic simplicity is hard to beat. First up: the Beckett Natural 90″ Round Linen Tablecloth, crafted from pure, natural linen:

This Fete Pewter Grey 90″ Round Tablecloth is made from soft cotton, and the color beautifully offsets any vibrant meal you bring to the table! This one can even be thrown in the dryer if you tumble dry low:

Another dryer-friendly piece: the Blue 60″ Round Umbrella Tablecloth. We love the way it can wrap around your umbrella pole, making it easy to place and remove. A 60″ diameter is an ideal size for many an outdoor table:

Our next two featured tablecloths come from Williams-Sonoma, and they bring a fresh dose of pattern to today’s post. Say hello to the Berry Meadow Print Tablecloth in Blue, which has a diameter of 90″ and is sure to add Provençal style to the dining area of your choice:

Another botanical piece with classic style: the Floral Blossom Round Tablecloth, woven in Turkey and available in grey and red (as well as blue). With fabric this soft, you just might be tempted to pick up all three…

Custom Solutions

Looking for a specific style of round tablecloth that’s a bit hard to track down? Don’t forget the power of a custom solution. In fact, a little fabric paint can help you transform a light-colored round tablecloth into a true focal point for your dining room. Not feeling crafty? Another option: having a piece custom-made from the fabric of your choice, like this custom dotted tablecloth below. [photo by Jonny Valiant for Katie Lydon Interiors]

Tablecloth Styling

We now shift gears from shopping and customizing to design inspiration, starting with simple, crisp tablecloths in equally crisp settings. This dining area with a view is draped in neutral tones. A tablecloth in cream is a fitting choice for the space. [photo from Ryan Street & Associates]

When a checkered floor is involved, a classic white-on-white approach is a stunning answer. Especially when the tablecloth is topped with a vase of vibrant flowers. [photo from Lonny]

Round Tablecloths for Accent Tables

Round tablecloths aren’t just for dining tables. In fact, there are many reasons to introduce a tablecloth into your living area as a covering for an accent piece, such as a side table. For one thing, it adds a dose of elegance, and it can cover even the most basic of tables, instantly upping the style factor. [photo by Ricci Shryock for Zoe Feldman Design, Inc.]
