Linen Sizing Chart

Creativity can make many linen sizes fit a myriad of tables and décor situations. Sometimes you just want to know what standard size cloth, fits the commonly used tables.

  • The number of guests that fit varies by how much elbow room you want and the width of the chairs.
  • Chairs with arms and wide seat chairs should go by the lower seating number.
  • The only way you can be sure, is to place the intended use chairs around a table and see how tight they are.
  • Here’s our test on how close chairs can comfortably be placed – set the chairs around a table so the seats are right at the edge of the table. There needs to be at least 2 inches between the front seat corners of side-by-side chairs. Many hotels have the chair corners almost touching – we think that is too tight.
  • Standard tables are 30” tall.
