Paris-based designer Bruno Lamy discovered the age-old tradition of hand-block printing while traveling in India. When he returned home, he began using the technique in his studio to depict the flora, fauna, and fruit of Provence on vibrantly colored linens and bedding. Couleur Nature's collections feature the traditional workmanship of fine French linens—think matelasse, hand-finishing and scalloped edging—and include everything from shams and quilts to tablecloths and napkins.
We've gone through our coffers and picked some hidden gems in a huge range of categories — from furniture to accessories — to serve as a little design inspiration for 2012. Now's your chance to pick these items up at wallet-friendly prices.
