In 2010, Holly Stuart decided that dressing the table was as much fun as planning the meal and began crafting beautiful hardboard placemats by hand in Illinois. From the beginning, her pieces played with popular block print patterns like Greek Key, ikat and dots in bright colors. Word got out about her beautiful and functional table dressings so her business expanded to coasters, trays and more to fulfill the increasing demand.
Today, Holly Stuart Home’s line of happy table dressings are handcrafted in the United States. Each piece is backed in black, trimmed in gold or platinum, and protected with three coats of low matte clear polyurethane. Her pieces are easy to care for; should they get dirty, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth. Her designs are also regularly featured in Oprah’s O Magazine.
