Christmas Placemat, Red-Gold
Georg Jensen Damask
The iconic motif on the placemat celebrates Christmas as the season of goodwill and is a nostalgic signature design in the damask collection. The placemat is equally suitable for everyday Christmas cheer, Advent celebrations, and Christmas parties. Bodil Bødtker-Næss, who was one the inner-circle of textile designers at Georg Jensen Damask in the 1970s, designed the motif. She was also responsible for the classic Easter design from the same period. The braided Christmas hearts and stylized spruce twigs have represented the quintessence of the Christmas atmosphere for more than 40 years and the design is an essential part of Christmas in many Danish homes. The classic color combination of Christmas red and gold has a special place in the hearts of many Danes and has been part of our collection since its introduction in 1975. With its beautiful simplicity, the placemat upholds the original color combination of the Yuletide tradition. Matching napkins are woven in linen to complete the expression.
