Trip to Blauen
A few weeks ago, Blauen invited me to visit their atelier. So fun to peak behind the scenes of my vendors. Blauen is an old world baby bedding company. With European roots, it is perhaps the most luxurious and fine baby bedding company that this world offers. It is known for a very, very traditional look that is often times embellished in fancy lace and trims.
Located in Long Island City, amidst the many warehouses and art studios, Blauen’s home is sun filled and clean. Every item is lovingly made by seamstresses that have worked there for many years. It is so wonderful and unusual to see how proud the employees are of their products.
Boxes of trims and laces are nicely organized and are ready to use…
I saw many finished products…
I wanted to design a crib set for the shop in a way that was alittle more modern. I wanted to use Blauen’s sensibility and update it a bit. So I picked some fabrics for inspiration and thanked the lovely people.
The bedding arrived and it is just beautiful!
