Rated 5 out of 5Â by Karebair So much better in person! Can dress up or down.
For those of you who've only seen this table runner online, it is shinier in person, giving your table just a bit of bling. It isn't over the top at all, in fact I plan to use it on my table throughout the year. I like the juxtaposition of natural fibers versus the metallic strands interspersed.
This runner looks great in the Anthro stock photo on the wooden table, yet looks great IMO on a more formal dining room table. I can see this used with a big bowl of apples in a more country setting, or as you can see it can also look elegant under a silver & crystal epergne.
The only possible negatives are that you must spot clean it, which I'm sure is more of an issue with its coordinating placemats. Also, while this doesn't bother me, you can see that the runner doesn't lay completely flat at the sides, it ruffles somewhat.
If you like it online, you'll love it when you open the package. It is classic Anthropologie - beautiful with a twist.

As the other reviews have stated, this product is exponentially more attractive in person. I discovered it in-store and fell in love - it's woven design and texture and soft neutrals mixed with pink sorbets could be boring but are offset by the intermingled metallic thread - it gives it a much needed edge.

As other reviews have described, this table runner is so much more beautiful than the pictures show. It is a variety of neutral fabrics weaved with a silver metallic material every other row, which gives off a simplistic but glam vibe. The edges don't lie completely flat to the table as it is made of relatively thick material, but this hasn't been an issue for me. I ran a line of candles down the middle of mine and the light shimmering off the metallic portion gives it a nice cozy feel. Again, don't let the pictures on the anthro website fool you - much more spectacular in person!
