I am extremely pleased with the quality of the Tava collection. The natrual rattan make is top quality. I use mine as a placemat more than a charger because I don't like table cloths and the honey stain color looks great against my table. I wish I got these on sale though. They were more than I wanted to spend, but sometimes you just have to go for it.
I am so happy with these chargers. I purchased them to use more as placemats for decorative use but also as chargers. I like having chargers on the table during meals that can easily be wiped off instead of risking a stain as I might with cloth placemats. These are sturdy and beautiful. I did purchase the matching napkin rings but we are currently using the gorgeous spring butterfly napkin rings. I love the way everything looks together! We have mahogany and espresso stained furniture and, the havana seagrass barstools. I couldn't be any happier! One thing to note for those sensitive to smells, is that the stain on these chargers has a bit of a smell definitely not bothersome to us and we feel like it will fade. This would not deter me from purchasing again.
