New Holiday Table Linen That Will Take You Straight To Summer!

Shopping

You might have guessed it from our tablescaping story last week, but we are VERY excited to get into a long summer of entertaining and dining with friends.

And what’s as good as a friendship in the creative world? A collaboration.

This one between local fabric artisans Bonnie and Neil, and design studio CLO Studios is a knock-out! Inspired by Australian summers and beachy tones, the collection of table linens, cushions and napkins is the backdrop to any bestie dinner party that will happen in the next six months. Bring it on!

If aliens came to earth and we had to describe the quintessential ‘Australian’ Christmas, it would likely include seafood, sandy yellows and oceanic blues.

This collaboration between CLO Studios and textile extraordinaire Bonnie and Neil draws on all those sights, smells, sounds and more with a new holiday-inspired table linen collection perfect for a summer of dining.

‘We thought there was no better way than to celebrate Australian design too,’ explains CLO Studios co-founder, Chloe Tozer. ‘Bonnie and Neil came straight to mind!’

The fabric and homewares designers make all their pieces at their Reservoir showroom (big yay to local manufacturing!), meaning the seaside-inspired pieces are made right here on Australian shores too.

The ‘Summertime’ collection includes eight cushion designs, two tablecloths and two napkin sets – each adorned with beachy stripes, sea-shell prints and relaxing, warm tones. To complement the range of soft pieces, CLO Studios also brought out a range of Fasano Ceramiche plates, with cake stands and painted platters.

How beautiful is the campaign shoot with food by Monica Bestek?!
