Hungarian Red

Just a few more months & it’s the Roundtop-Marburger show again. Woot! I’m always excited but the problem is, I haven’t even done the blog posts I’ve been wanting to write since the Spring show. Well, a few days ago in Twitterland, this amazing designer was talking about Pandora de Balthazar, which of course is the must go to shop to find the best of the best as far as European linens are concerned. It brought me back to memories of touching their linens with vintage Hungarian red embroidery.

A little history: It started in the 2nd half of the 19th century. The material is linen or coloured yarn, flat stitching. The most popular motifs are flowers and meadows.

My snapshots doesn’t do them justice. Ready to shop? Here you go

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
