Creating a Holiday-Ready Guest Room with John Robshaw

Good morning, chic readers! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas already this year–and we couldn’t love it any more. I found out today that there is less time than usual between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I absolutely had to get on my holiday shopping stat. (Plus, all the music and movies and twinkle lights have begun and are getting to me!)

One of our favorite things is gathering all the family together for Thanksgiving and Christmas and, to that end, we are creating a guest-ready bedroom so our visitors can rest in style.

We are love, love, loving this gorgeous John Robshaw bedding that is nothing short of guest-perfect. (Okay, let’s be real: It’s us perfect, too, and we’ll be stealing it back stat!) The coverlet is soft to the touch and oh-so-cozy, the comforter inside this duvet is soft, fluffy and gorgeous, and the fabrics are absolutely to-die-for.

As with everything in design, it’s the details that make these textiles not just beautiful but extraordinary. Hand block painting, hand block stitching and the finest down and feathers available set these linens apart and are one of the facets of John Robshaw’s vision for his spectacular brand.

We could barely resist climbing into this bed ourselves once we had made it.

But, well, we couldn’t bear to wrinkle the softest, most luxurious sheets. The detail is simple, elegant and so inviting.

Now we feel like our guest room is ready to go for anyone who wants to join us for the holiday season!

But the great thing about John Robshaw’s Collection is that the colors, patterns, style and variety mean there is the perfect selection for every space. His degree in fine art from Pratt and expertise in block printing are evident in every beautiful item.

And we love how pieces from John Robshaw ‘s collection can be mixed and matched to create a completely custom look.

They are never fussy, never overdone, but these linens are pure luxury all the way.

The only problem now is that your guests might want to stay a little too long… ‘Tis the season, right?

Looking Forward to Fall with John Robshaw

 

When you look at my textiles, it’s as if you’ve been on the world tour alongside me. — John Robshaw

We think it was perhaps that one, beautiful thought that first made us fall in love with John Robshaw Textiles.

 

 

If you’re a long-time Design Chic follower, you know that we love homes–and products–that tell a story.

 

 

John Robshaw’s road to the creation of his handcrafted textile line has been just that: a story. 

 

 

His journey to India began with a mission to find natural indigo dye for his paintings, in the wake of studying traditional block printing in China and earning a fine arts degree at Pratt.

 

 

What he found, instead, was a love of fabric-making, a fascination that would change the course of his life.  

 

 

When he founded his eponymous company that love of exploring new cultural influences and techniques didn’t end.

 

 

Robshaw continues to travel the world, finding inspiration for his new collections.

 

 

“I want all the colors, techniques and designs from each culture to blend,” he said. “I redesign them and mix up the processes. I edit them, learn from them, make them my own, but retain their essence.” 

 

 

A focus on hand stitching, hand painting, hand block printing and hand quilting are all hallmarks of the exceptional textiles that the company produces.  

 

 

And that commitment shows. 

 

 

Each and every piece from John Robshaw’s collection bears the mark of that excellence, from the towels that are as beautiful as they are functional,

 

 

To textiles that positively transform a bathroom, 

 

 

Each artfully designed piece is a showstopper. 

 

 

John Robshaw makes setting the table a special event, and helps create memorable celebrations with the people we hold most dear. 

 

 

One peek at Robshaw’s travel journals, and it’s easy to see where he gathers his inspiration–and why every piece in his gorgeous collection tells a story.
