Don’t forget about Dad...


Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, June 21st. From the recommendations to the wrapping to the shipping where required, we are more than happy to help you prepare for this Father’s Day responsibly and conveniently. Just give us a call (or stop by).

Instead of sharing gift ideas, we wanted to share this message we received from Rana Taghdisi of Home Treasures. For those unfamiliar, Home Treasures is the self proclaimed largest manufacturer of fully bespoke luxury Italian linens (in the United States). It’s one of many smaller, family operated suppliers that we have carried at The Linen Tree for many years.

The Snooze Report | Vol. 3
June 12, 2020

To say that 2020 has been a year of change is an understatement. Over the past weeks, we have been challenged yet again to stop and reflect how we go about our daily lives, and how often we take what we have been given for granted. We can do better, and I hope that each of us will strive to be better every day. I know I will.

In my personal experience, I have been asked my fair share of questions, despite being born and raised in the USA: Where are you really from? You don’t look like you’re from Texas… What religion are you? Where were you born? The truth is, and what matters most, is that my family and I are so grateful to be able to call Texas our home, and thank all of you for your continued support for our family: Saeed, myself and the artisans who handcraft Home Treasures’ products every single day. We hope to do the same for you, so please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know how we can be helpful.

During this period, I have taken the opportunity to reflect on my own blessings, including my father, Saeed, who many of you have grown to know personally over the past 32 years. The picture above was taken around my second birthday, a year after Home Treasures had first opened its doors. Despite the amount of work, stress, and frustration that he faced at the time—which as entrepreneurs, we have all certainly experienced these past few months—there are some key lessons by which he lives by: ones I have been lucky enough to take in from working with him these past 5 years.

  • Always respect others, no matter how much you may disagree with their opinion
  • Never be too proud to admit when you’re wrong; I’m sorry goes a long way
  • There’s no such thing as failure, just life lessons, without which we’d never grow up
  • Celebrate the daily wins, no matter how small
  • With Father’s Day just around the corner, I just wanted to share. I’m sure you all have your own learnings, which have been passed on to you by loved ones or through your own experiences. Remember, each of these is something to be thankful for every day, particularly the days that are most challenging.

    With all my best,

    Loloi Rugs ~ 2020 catalog



    “We believe in the thoughtfully layered home. That the best spaces come together with intention. That craftsmanship is something worth committing to. That a good rug does more than tie the room together – it sets the home apart.”

    Loloi’s approach is simple: design rugs, pillows, and wall art for today’s homes, and bring it all to life with centuries-old craftsmanship. We mostly stock their dec pillows at The Linen Tree, but there is also an extensive array of rugs that can be ordered, as well. Below are a few choice shots from the most recent catalog (followed by the full catalog itself).

    Introducing Giza 45 Seta (and more)


    New for the Spring, Sferra has introduced Giza 45 Seta. Featuring a nearly 50/50 blend of Giza 45 Egyptian Cotton and exquisite silk fiber, Seta’s two-toned sateen weave lends an especially sumptuous finish. Is it the ultimate in Giza 45 bedding, or the ultimate in silk bedding? You decide.

    Other new additions include Dorato, a limited edition duvet cover / sham which is backed in Giza 45 Seta, and a limited edition ‘Unity’ throw blanket. The Unity throw, a special collaboration between actress Lucy Liu and Sferra, features a 100% silk print on the front, and reverses to cashmere. Sferra and Lucy Liu will combine to donate 15% of all Unity sales to the Tory Burch Foundation, a non-profit organization advancing women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship. There will be a limited production run of 100 throws.

    Both the Giza 45 Seta and Dorato collections are exclusively made to order (allow up to three months for delivery). The Dorato collection must be ordered ASAP to guarantee availability; at last check six of fiteen had been sold.
