Our Jungle inspired spring collection was designed with decorating in mind! We’ve added our own embroidered spin to classic motifs found in timeless interiors. From big cats to lush greenery to vibrant animal patterns, Safari Style has long been a staple in traditional and eclectic interiors alike. To celebrate the launch of our new decor driven collection, our Head of Fabric Lynsey Erin Hirth painted dream house scenes featuring our new designs in artful interiors.
June is officially in full swing and the long days and warm weather have us ready to attend backyard BBQs and host our own outdoor gatherings. We debuted our Desert Collection last fall and we’re ready to finally set our summer tables with our embroidered linens of colorful cacti and desert dwellers. We put together a few tips on how to set a table fit for a solstice soiree complete with a tequila cocktail recipe!
We absolutely love to entertain here at Coral & Tusk and from throwing studio shindigs to large dinner parties, we wanted to share our our favorite ways to celebrate with friends and family. For our fall festivities, setting a beautiful table helps to create an inviting space for good conversation and delicious food.
Choosing the menu and the atmosphere of the party is a perfect place to start because it makes the larger decisions for how to set your table fall into place. For any table setting, we like to first spread out the table runner or table cloth and keep layering until it feels good! Begin with your linens, then decide your dinnerware setting layout depending on what you’re serving. If you’re sharing appetizers and drinks, keep it simple and buffet style with dessert plates, vintage cheese knives, serving spoons and cocktail napkins.
After our amazing team Wyoming Adventure, we wanted to share Coral & Tusk’s new Outpost and exciting new fabrics and upholstered pieces with the rest of the West at the Western Design Conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming! This 4 day conference is an incredible exhibit of furniture makers, fashion design, and an amazing large scale Designer Show House where interior designers and architects create individual rooms of a house, all within the conference space. Wanting to venture into more upholstery and debut new ways to use our embroidered fabric by the yard, we really wanted some “WOW” factor for the booth!
Designer and owner Stephanie Housley got inspired by the gorgeous master bedroom makeover that Emily Henderson designed where she used Rebecca Atwood’s marbled fabric to upholster her bed in. We decided to tackle this gargantuan upholstery project and since we have an amazing builder on the team, our Director of Operations Aggie Armstrong, we enlisted her to make the wood structure base along with other structures to hold our fabrics and pillows for the conference. The amount of upholstering knowledge we had done between was minuscule, and did we mention the 3 day time frame we had to accomplish it?

For the bed, Stephanie had a vision of what she wanted in her home to be able to use after the Western Design Conference, a versatile yet striking combination of our Quill Slate Striae Linen and a new custom colorway, Quill Fog Striae Linen. This combo is a perfect starting point for layering many of our bedding and pillow options.

Shown on right: Lynsey, who heads the Fabric Division wanted to sew these fabrics together to look engineered in a perfect mirror, so straight pins were key!!

Here’s Aggie with the bed frame completed! Now we’ll take this apart to upholster each section piece by piece with the fabric we’ve just sewn together.
