Placemats: basically classy dropcloths.

Last night the roomie, K, expressed her shock over my lack of placemats. It's funny because I guess I've just never really thought about getting them. They always just seemed like a bit of an fussy, old ladyish, outdated, just something-else-that-needs-washing, pain-in-the-butt. I also typically have dining tables that, like the rest of my furniture, can take a bit of a beating. It got me thinking though so I decided to troll Esty to see what I could find.
Of course, now I'm a little worried that this could be some sort of decor slippery-slope. Next I'll be buying tablecloths and then what's next? Doilies for the armchairs? Oh the humanity.purposedesign.
