Discriminating interior designers have long called on Tony Ciavola, owner of the local high-end table linens company Mia Tavola, to customize their clients’ linens to match china, wallpaper, upholstery, or architectural details (he offers 130 color options and custom embroidery). Now, Ciavola can do the same for you through Design Shoppe, which carries several of his designs and also offers custom services. After all, shouldn’t your linens bring something to the table? Prices range from $15 for an embroidered medium-weight linen coaster to $640 for an embroidered 70-by-120-inch linen tablecloth. Mia Tavola at Design Shoppe, (2009 N. Fremont St., 773-883-6004; miatavola.com) - E.L.
