Miss D'Place is a Canberra based business created by two sisters who have a passion for colour, design and entertaining. They design and make fabric placemats with colourful, bold and modern designs.
The business started as a result of frustration at the limited range of tableware available in the wide world of shopping malls. Nothing seemed to reflect either of the sisters’ personalities or the modern and fun feel that they wanted to express. "Nothing to do but sort it out themselves" they decided.
Each placemat is handmade out of 100% cotton fabric, backed with brightly coloured, complementary cotton fabric and interfacing used in between for added strength. The designs are digitally printed onto the fabric.
Miss D'Place's placemats are for people who love something a bit different and who want to create a beautifully styled table for their next dinner party or to give a splash of colour to their table.
In the future they hope to expand their range to include tablerunners and table cloths.

Where do you get your inspiration?
"Our inspiration comes mainly from nature for the designs and then playing with shapes and rearranging lines until new desired shapes are created. The colours are selected from keeping up with current trends while ensuring that the colours selected are bright and cheery."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"The retro inspired design is a favourite as we have a love for all things retro."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Working with fabric is fantastic and seeing your designs printed onto it a great feeling. We would like to try screen printing our designs soon."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"Rugs would be a great surface to design for. There is such a great range of materials and finishes that give a design a completely different look."
