When it comes to versatile textiles, designer Sandy Chilewich's eponymous studio creates innovative products for both domestic and industrial settings. Originally introduced to the international design community in 2000, Chilewich's woven textiles have redefined the way people cover their tables and floors. From placemats for an outdoor tabletop to floor coverings for a busy hallway, the Dwell Store features many of Chilewich's best-selling products.
The Mini Basketweave utilizes two yarns over two, instead of the traditional four over four found in the signature Basketweave. The result is a subtler, quieter texture and pleasingly uniform surface. Made from durable woven textile and flexible commercial-grade backing, the Mini Basketweave Woven Floor Mat is perfect for everyday use in the home or outdoors.
This placemat is designed to provide a bright accent on a dining table or kitchen counter, while functioning as a durable mat to protect surfaces from spills. The mats are made from intricately woven vinyl and terrastrand, creating a strong, weather-resistant mat that can be used both indoors and out. Sold as a set of four.
The Skinny Stripe mat blends slim bands of color for an alluring pattern that gives a sense of movement from a distance. Made from extruded yarns, the mat features a tufted texture that adds visual interest. A strong vinyl backing makes the mat an excellent choice for high traffic areas.
The Mini Basketweave Oval Placemats are made from durable woven textile, making them an ideal mat for everyday dining, indoors and out. The oval shape complements both round and rectangular tables alike. Sold as a set of four.
