If you're planning a little summer soirée, but finding that your table setting feels a little stale, add these linen Bandana Napkins ($24 each, $92 for set of four) to the mix. They're designed and made by Studiopatró, an SF-based textile company that produces bright and elegant home designs. The brand tells us that these new napkins, with a pattern of dots inside a border, were inspired by traditional bandanas. "It is also reminiscent of the circle and diamond shaped punched openings of a kitchen colander," says Studiopatró's founder and designer Christina Weber. The 22-inch squares make for generously-sized napkins and are available in three different colors—Indigo, Slate, and Willow. Bonus: Your party guests can wear them as bandanas if that's what they'd prefer.
