D. Porthault The Art of Luxury Linens
Inspired French luxury for the home
D. Porthault The Art of Luxury Linens takes a peek inside private homes and gardens to see why D. Porthault (pronounced Por-tó) has been the favored French luxury linens brand for nearly one hundred years. For the first time, interiors are revealed that showcase the prints and embroideries ~ inspired by art and nature ~ that continue to make D. Porthault famous.
Elegant bedrooms, sophisticated dining rooms, cheerful outdoor spaces, sweetly decorated nurseries and salles de bains highlight the hand-crafted artistry of D. Porthault’s bed, table and bath linens.
Tour old-world, classic and contemporary decors in the US and France as you read the story of the Porthault company and explore its design and production ateliers.
Includes a foreward by Architectural Digest editor-in-chief Amy Astley and a preface by D. Porthault owner Joan Carl.
