John Lewis London Places Placemats, Set of 4
Will give these a miss!
I love these mats - great graphic - but after reading about the poor quality noted by previous reviewers, I'm afraid I will have to give these a miss. And that's a missed sale for John Lewis! Not the standard I expect from my favorite shop!

Peeling already after only a few weeks, don't waste your money.
Bought these placemats for everyday use as they were not flowers or just patterned. They are a great design and bigger than your average placemat which was perfect for us. However after only a few weeks, no more than 4, the very thin paper top of the mat started to peel away. I have been very careful to gently wipe the mats but they have still peeled. Last night my daughter knocked her drink over and although we wiped it up straight away, there are two big white patched now on the mats where the paper has peeled off. Very poor quality from John Lewis and I will be taking them back. These are placemats, they need to be wiped. Very disappointed with the quality but can't fault the design.

Not worth the money!
I am the biggest John Lewis fan going but I'm afraid these Placemats are very poor quality. Very thin, peeling in places and doesn't sit flat on the table.

Stylish and dramatic
I ordered these because I didn't want shiny mats that always look smeary even after they have been wiped. These are smart and quite eye catching and have a good matt finish - larger than I expected that that's my fault for not measuring. It really is a question of how often you want to use them. These are our every day mats, in constant use for each meal. The downside is that the top layer has been stuck on on rather then melded onto the backing and as a result it quickly starts to wear. We've had them for about 6 months now and the edges are beginning to curl already and small patches have come away. I have been touching up with a black pen but they aren't going to last that long. If you want them for occasional use, then I would recommend them, otherwise probably not.

These mats look great and are a good size (larger than normal mats) - only downside is that after a small amount of careful use the corners have begun to ware at the edges (on the top face)...

Easy to clean
Wipe-friendly placemats with a funky design. They look great on our kitchen table and a great alternative to dull floral designs. The placemats are a great size and easily fit a plate, cutlery and glass of wine!

Classic Landmark London Tablemats
If you're not into flowers, muted landscapes & other images that appear on tabel mats, then these are the table mats to go for !! a decently sized square table mat (would take a fair sized dinner plate# in a simple colourway #ivory on charcoal# of iconic London locations in an attractive font. #matching coasters available) Hunted for about a year for the 'right' table mats & now I've found them !!
