Thinking about taking a break from entertaining now that the holidays are over? Not so fast. There are plenty of reasons to throw a dinner party in January, namely the introduction of Rebecca Atwood's first-ever table linens collection. The Brooklyn-based designer and artist who launched her eponymous homewares label less than three years ago with a group of one-of-a-kind throw pillows, has since expanded her rapidly growing offerings to include wallpaper, fabric by the yard, artwork, and now, table décor.
The inaugural collection includes 100-percent linen runners, tablecloths, and napkins done in six patterns—ranging from hand-dyed shibori styles to nature-inspired prints (many of which are made to order, making custom sizing easy). When conceiving of the new line, Atwood was influenced by the dining experiences in her childhood home on Cape Cod.
"My mom always insisted on cloth napkins and table linens, and we used family silver and china on a regular basis," she says. "These small details really took something from just a meal to an experience. Expect to see similar results when using Atwood's linens on your own dining table.
