Lovely, local linensAuthor:Mary Jo Bowling
What happens when one of California’s top interior designers collaborates with the local creator of luxury homewares? Something beautiful.
Julia Berger, founder of Julia B., and interior designer Suzanne Tucker, principal of Tucker & Marks, partnered on a line of linens that are inspired by signature Suzanne Tucker Home textiles as well as details from antique documents and linens. The resulting five designs are perfect for spring.
Berger—who was raised in Tokoyo and San Francisco and recently opened her studio and headquarters in Healdsburg, California—and Tucker—a design icon who is based in San Francisco—have worked together on projects before, and share a love exquisite craftsmanship, fine textiles and elegant design.
In practice, that appreciation translates into home goods crafted by hand, by artisans. For example, the embroidery and appliqué on the pieces uses centuries old French techniques that have been passed down from one generation to the next. The linens themselves are 100 percent cotton or linen, and made by the highest-quality mills in Europe.
While the linens are of heirloom quailty and crafted with hertiage methods, their motifs are crisp and contemporary—in other words, sophistication without stuffiness. The linens are available on the Julia B. website and through dealers who carry the line.
