Coral & Tusk Gets a Super-Sophisticated New Look
The Brooklyn-based brand debuts a collection of globally inspired pillows, duvets, and textiles that are miles away from their cutesy standbys.
Coral & Tusk, the eight-year-old, Brooklyn-based label known for its whimsical embroidery designs (sparkler-carrying foxes, sweater-wearing rabbits), goes sophisticated with its debut Wayfarer collection. The new range—which includes decorative pillows, duvets, table linens, and fabric by the yard (available for any custom upholstery jobs you may have; i.e., that vintage chair you’ve been meaning to recover)—stays true to the brand’s roots with elaborate embroidery techniques featuring metallic and sequin embellishments, but the motifs take a decidedly refined turn.
Wayfarer’s intricately detailed geometric patterns on custom woven-linen fabrics draw inspiration from founder Stephanie Housley’s extensive travels and pay homage to global traditions. “For this new collection, I was exceptionally inspired by the textiles, garments, yurts, saddle blankets, and general aesthetic of the Berber people,” says Housley.
C&T will continue to expand on the range this spring. Look out for new colors, including ground fabrics in black/charcoal and orange/fuchsia.
