We’ve long admired the heirloom-priced, subtly luxurious
Windowpane Tablecloth, available at March in San Francisco and made by heritage Italian linen house Society Limonta. So we took note when we spotted a similar tablecloth in Kara Mann’s collection for CB2. Great minds think alike?
Above: The Large Italian White Windowpane Tablecloth, which measures 26 by 71 inches, is “made of pure froissè linen and has a border of windowpane lace to blend the romance of vintage embroidery with modern form”; $1,365 from March. Above: A detail of the windowpane lace border. Above: Chicago designer Kara Mann, known for her minimalist but luxurious interiors, has a new line with CB2; we couldn’t help but notice her Eyelet White Tablecloth, made in India and available in two sizes: the 60-by-90-inch size is $99.95 and the 60-by-120-inch size is $129. Above: “I love the simplicity of it,” Kara Mann says. “It’s linen. It’s not like you have to press it or send it out for dry-cleaning. Just throw it in the washing machine, dry it for about 10 minutes, and put it out. It doesn’t need to be fussy.”
