We’re getting so excited for an upcoming textile event with Chairloom and Apartment Therapy to reupholster furniture and wanted to share some how-to’s and inspiration for Upholstery 101!

Our embroidered linen fabric is a great choice for stools, chairs, settees, and basically anything you can imagine recovering! A couple years ago we even took it upon ourselves to build and upholster a whole BED, you can follow our step-by-step DIY here. We’ve upholstered dozens of chairs over the years that we’ve used for studio hangs, napping spots for 100 + pound dogs, and to enjoy in our own homes with daily use. You can also consult with your upholsterer and ask if they recommend backing the fabric, which is a standard way to reinforce the fabric for extra strength.

We’ve been inspired by Hygge & West for years, admiring their wall paper designs and following their collaborations and partnerships. Founders Aimee Lagos and Christiana Coop have an amazing eye for design, interiors and pattern. We were so excited to hear that they were coming out with their own book, Hygge & West Home: Design for a Cozy Life, and absolutely ecstatic to have Stephanie’s home in Wyoming be a part of it. Stephanie’s cabin is in excellent company, alongside Aimee and Christina’s own homes, Julia Rothman, Malene Barnett, Ana Gasteyer, Angelina Rennell, Glenn Lawson, among others! Published by Chronicle Books, it’s now available to purchase in most places where books are sold. Hygge & West Home is a must-have resource if you are interested in design and interiors. Grab your copy today and in the meantime scroll through to see a few sneak peeks of Stephanie’s home and interview!

Happy World Oceans Day! 

World Oceans Day is a day designated by the UN for celebrating and bringing awareness to our oceans. It is also a day for action! Oceanic animals and the sea itself have long inspired us, from our very first pillow design, Very Hungry Whale, to our name, Coral & Tusk. In honor of World Oceans Day, we’d love to take a moment to appreciate all the reasons why oceans are both inspiring and important and also talk about a few things we can all do to help keep our oceans healthy.
