I may be on my own here.
I am alternately interested in and repulsed by table skirts. They seem like the most ridiculous thing ever invented, but I can’t help feeling that there’s potential in them somewhere. What are they for? So you don’t see the table legs? A bit Victorian, no? Showing leg is not acceptable but being topless is okay? I mean why would you use a table skirt and then not cover the top of the table?
