50s, 60s, 70s Must-Have Vintage Table Mats at yay retro!

Vintage table mats are in our opinion a vital component to any vintage styled home as they are central to any meal time, and exceedingly useful in between to pop things on. Whether you opt for metal and cork backed 1950s mats, melamine table mats from the 1960s or linen place mats from the 1970s, vintage mats are stunningly designed.

We love kitsch floral mats from the 50s which often feature flower patterns or even photographs of flowers. Right now yay retro! have two marvellous boxed sets in almost new condition from makers including Worcesterware. Both would make fantastic gifts and are ideal for making a statement in your 50s styled modern home.



1960s Flower Power melamine table mats are exceedingly hard to find due to their popularity. However at the moment we have a simply divine and stunning set made by Helenware in our online vintage shop which are as new in their box! With huge turquoise daisies these are incredible and won't be around for long! Why buy contemporary copies, when you can have genuine vintagewares?

In the 60 & 70s Irish linen place mats came into being. What we love about these is the bright colours and Scandi style patterns. Our favourites are the bird designs by Old Bleach, and we have a complete unopened set of table mats and napkins in this design at the moment - marvellous! Next to these we have a wonderful boxed set of linen table mats by Liddell which come with napkins and napkin rings,. What's great about the fabric table mats is that you can use them in sewing projects making cushions and bags and much more, so they are popular with those looking for vintage fabrics too!
