Carole Shiber Designs creates hand-painted placements and table linens that add joy and functional beauty to any seasonal moment. The original and premiere collection, Carole Shiber Designs is the boutique line of placemats, runners, coasters and sculpted “bowls” and napkins that are artfully cut, sewn and hand-painted on fine linen and cotton. Each design brings a bit of magic to your home, yet comes with a generous helping of practicality ~ all placemats and coasters simply sponge clean.
“I’ve been setting the table for just about as long as I’ve been able to reach the top of it. But it wasn’t until the Spring of 1989 that I became passionate about it. Surprised by the simple beauty of a placemat and napkin set I made for a friend, I was inspired to see what else I could bring to the table.
One year later, I was hand-painting over one thousand placemats and napkins for a very big store in New York City from a wooden table in my bedroom. I quickly found I couldn’t fill the orders fast enough. Fortunately, New York is blessed with talent and I quickly found a handful of local artists, who continue to bring so much of their own exquisite talent to my designs, artfully rendering each piece a unique work of art.”
