These placemats will look very classy with my Lenox dishes with the gold rim. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the horizontal 'bars' are formed by threads and if anything is spilled, the liquid will go right through them onto the table. However, the whole placemat is an open weave, so that is true for the entire surface of the mat! The placemats are not very shiny--they are a matte color which means they are subdued, not gaudy. They are made of a woven plastic-like material so they are washable and durable. Good purchase. I got 8 for $10.00 so I'm very pleased!!!

I ordered 8 of these, four of them had flaws in the weave - the only reason for 3 stars, otherwise 5 stars. Bargain price, so I'll keep for casual use.The gold color has a subtle shimmer and are easy to wipe down.
