Coral & Tusk Homewares

The arrival of Brooklyn based interiors emporium West Elm inspired us to seek out some more great homes destinations online – many of our recent discoveries including the brilliant San Francisco based March (seriously go and drool at their gorgeous homewares) don’t ship to the UK but one of our favourite New York labels, Coral & Tusk, does. We first discovered Stephanie Housley’s charming embroidered textiles, cushions and clothes at John Derian’s Manhattan store but the Brooklyn-based firm has a far wider selection on their own site including embroidered cushions, curtains, napkins and stationery. Housley is a textile artist in the truest sense of the phrase and her designs – which are all first drawn by hand before being embroidered onto cotton or linen – are inspired by travel, nature and a good dose of humour. They are the kind of finds that will become part of the fabric of your home for life. Perhaps the most shippable are the embroidered pictures which you can buy framed or unframed – any of these charming embroideries would work brilliantly in a child’s bedroom – there is also a fabulous embroidered alphabet too.
