Sultry. Sale.

It’s sultry in Portland, steamy in Beverly Hills and, well, cool and foggy in San Francisco. But, August for us, is about our Annual Sultry Sale, and this year we’ve got quite a lineup.

If you’re on our mailing list, you’ve received our colorful postcard featuring Caravan. Printed on Italian linen (in Italy, of course!) are big, beautiful elephants.

Italian Inspiration.

Last November, while strolling through Florence’s Uffizi Galleries, we were struck by the pattern on a picture frame.

Through the magical combination of technology and artistry, we had this pattern translated into a hand-embroidery pattern that now graces an Inspiration Bed at our San Francisco store, Samuel Scheuer. We call our newest creation Uffizi.

Fully hand-embroidered on Italian white linen, our Uffizi bedding is available only by special order and takes approximately eight weeks to complete. Also available in ivory linen, and on white or ivory cotton percale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, in honor of the frame that inspired our Uffizi handwork pattern, the painting within the frame is by Francesco Botticini, ca. 1470 and is called The Three Archangels and Tobias.

And, this is how it is made: by hand, always.

Beyond Luxury Linens.

Meadow Monogram

Being hand-embroidered, as we speak, is our new traditional-modern monogram. Traditional because it’s script with floral touches. Modern because the letter is oversized, the towel is hemstitch-free, and the hand work is done on natural Italian linen. In stores now.
