Historically based but evolved for the way we live today, Alexa Hampton’s work equally emphasizes luxury and comfort. Daughter of design legend Mark Hampton, Alexa Hampton echoes her father’s elegant aesthetic, but tailors it to modern proportions. Her home décor collections for Stark Carpet and exclusive pillow collection for Gilt are grounded in tradition and mix well with a variety of settings—in short, they’re forever pieces.
The fresh, classic designs, of Matouk linens, bedding, towels and sheets has always been synonymous with high style and uncompromising luxury. The roots of the company’s aesthetic, as well as its craft, are deep, running all the way back to pre-war Europe and even Damascus, where the company’s founder, John Matouk, was born to a family of jewelers. Matouk took his appreciation for workmanship to Italy, where he studied the linen business, and gained expertise in intricate lacework and hand-applied details. When he made it to New York, in 1929, and began selling trunks of singular fabrics to society’s movers and shakers, Matouk, as we know it today, was born. Today, the company is known for bespoke designs, classic appliqués, and its top-flight collaborations like Lulu DK for Matouk, a new bedding line in conjunction with Lulu de Kwiatkowski, founder and chief designer of Lulu DK Fabrics & Wallpaper.
