In the Lap of Luxury: Anichini Napkins

IN THE LAP OF LUXURY: ANICHINI NAPKINS -- At Studio of Style, we never set the table the same twice in a row -- and that means that we're always on the lookout for napkins that can change along with the mood, the food and the vibe we're trying to capture when we want to create an outstanding dinner party.  And with all the dinner parties that go on here in Hollywood, that can be a challenge unto itself -- which is why we were thrilled to discover (and now you know too!) these 24" x 24" "Nobel" hand-loomed herringbone linen napkins from Anichini in 22 delicious colors (15 of which are shown here).  With such a chic rainbow of stylish colors to choose from, you'll be thinking of excuses to have dinner parties just to show them off!  They're sturdy and their classic look and hand-made hemstitch means that they'll always be your go-to napkins for every occasion -- breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and those late-night romantic snacks after a night on the town! Company founder Susan Dollenmaier's love of all things textile was sparked by her grandmother who was a dressmaker -- and she went on to earn a B.A. in Design under the master Buckminster Fuller!  For the past 25 years, Anichini has been offering an amazing array of luxury linens and textiles from around the globe -- many from artisans who create their goods especially for Dollenmaier.  The company has a staggering list of celebrities and royalty who use nothing but Anichini -- and you can be part of that special group of people who know that a napkin is not just a napkin -- it's a way of life!  So get the Capri and Mazarine Blue ones for your boating parties -- and the Fire Engine Red one for St. Valentine's Day -- and Marigold for those summer picnics!  And, let's you want Blood Orange or Burnt Orange for your Sunday brunches??
