10 Easy Pieces: The Modern Monogram

June 28, 2023

Last month I was helping a friend compile her wedding registry when the topic of monogramming came up. To us, two women who prefer an understated sans serif script to prim calligraphy, the traditional monogram evokes a lost era of conspicuous spending and His and Hers linens. This led me on a search for the modern monogram, embroidered and printed in a distinctively contemporary typeface, and with a sense of subtlety. Here are 10 eye-opening discoveries: tableware, bedding, and household accessories that take a new approach to the bespoke.
