Grey House Linens can trace its roots to my home just outside of New York City, and in particular, to my mom. She loved to entertain, and taught me that a beautiful table creates the tone for every event. My mother impressed upon me that good food and good company deserve a fabulous table setting. The lesson is timeless Unfortunately, anyone who has searched for beautiful tablecloths knows that the selection is limited, and cloths for large or unusually-shaped tables are nearly impossible to find. If I couldn’t find a tablecloth that I liked or that fit my own table, clearly this was a niche that needed to be filled. Driven by frustration with the existing marketplace, a passion for beautiful textiles, and the help and support of talented friends, Grey House Linens was created. I’m fortunate to have access to some of the finest textile design houses in the country and to have my linens crafted at Drake Mills in Paterson, NJ, a city with a history of textile production that dates back to Alexander Hamilton. It’s extremely satisfying to provide my clients with gorgeous, bespoke table linens that reflect their personal design aesthetic, from traditional and classic to contemporary and modern. It’s my mission to become your source for exceptional table linens, supported by outstanding, personalized customer service.
Design Consultant and Pattern-Maker Meghan Wright plays a critical role at Grey House Linens. Her mother, also a textile designer, helped instill in her a passion for textiles and home furnishings at a young age. Meghan completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, where she learned her craft from the artisans who shape the industry. In conjunction with working for a major NY area textile design and manufacturing firm, Meghan is delighted to be a part of the Grey House Linens creative team.
Design Consultant Elise Blatt grew up understanding that the heart of the home was the family table. Her career choice came by way of a book her mom gave her in high school titled Career Choices for Women. Starting at A, she landed on architecture, negating the need for the remainder of the book or the alphabet. Elise obtained her Bachelors degree in Architectural Design at Miami University in Ohio, and studied historic preservation in the graduate school at Columbia University. Combining her studies and experience in architecture, interior design, and historic preservation, she founded Studio Square, her award-winning firm located in Montclair, NJ. Her attention to detail is reflected in the kitchens that fill her extensive portfolio. Elise brings her aesthetic and talent to the design team at Grey House Linens.
