Who says designer pieces have to stay in your wardrobe? If you like to decorate your home with the finest fashions, then you will adore impressing your house guests with Prabal Gurung’s new table linen collection. The designer has created a customizable, monogrammable 8-piece dinner party set with a romantic story behind it. To bring this vision to life, Gurung partnered with a dear friend, Hill House Home founder Nell Diamond.
“My wonderful friend Nell has always epitomized what it means to be a welcoming and gracious host,” the designer shared. “There is no one I’d rather collaborate with to make my dream dinner table a reality.”
The delicate floral-patterned dinner party set is crafted from pure linen and is comprised of a set of eight hand-embroidered placemats, eight customizable napkins and eight customizable cocktail napkins.
On Instagram, the brand shared the collection was created “to celebrate the art of the dinner party while bringing unique individuals together to form an intriguing dialogue prompted by a stimulating conversation starter with poet Christina Rossetti’s 1877 poem ‘An Emerald Is As Green As Grass’ hand embroidered into each setting.”
Nell Diamond revealed that the poetic inspiration was shared among the design team. “Rossetti has always been a favorite poet of mine, and she is an incredibly powerful example of what Prabal calls ‘femininity with a bite.’ As one of the foremost poets of the Victorian era, she challenged expectations of what it meant to be a woman, an artist, and a citizen through her work,” she shared. “Her poems are at once vibrant, lively, romantic and serious, considered, urgent. This dichotomy felt perfect for our collaboration. With both beauty and substance, the poem is a mirror image for the collection itself.”
The collection is currently available exclusively through custom order on Moda Operandi, and sells for $1,700.
