Summer’s Backdrop: Block-Printed Table and Bed Linens by Studio Ford

June 30, 2022

The linens I’ve been noting for summer dinner parties—and summer bedrooms? That would be Collection IV, the latest line of handmade textiles from Studio Ford, based in LA (and frequent collaborators with Commune). The collection is inspired by the tradition of overshot weaving; popular in the US at the turn of the 19th century, it’s easily recognized by its repeated geometric patterns, but Studio Ford’s take is made using the block printing techniques that sparked their own beginnings.

Take a look at some of the subtly colorful, subtly patterned—and, often, reversible—quilts, tablecloths, and throws.
