Go Green Buy Vintage

Following my marriage to a wonderful Texan, I am now living in Houston. Once settled, I set about trying to emulate the treasure hunting weekends I so enjoyed back home in London. Friends and I would set out in search of American linens - not as easy as one would expect! Much to my surprise, it has been easier to find good quality European linens and textiles. My closet is full to bursting with the most exquisite antique and vintage linens and textiles dating from 1880 to 1950, together with pretty silk and velvet ribbons plus a beautiful collection of mother of pearl and diamante buttons. These linens have inspired me to design and create a collection of home furnishings, accessories and gifts. The collection is now available and consists of an abundance of pillows in all shapes and sizes, luxury travel pillow shams, table runners, lampshades, cutlery linen wraps, heirloom stockings and much more. This is one of the most beautiful collections of home furnishings, accessories and gifts I have created under the Eliza label; unique designs and each piece hand crafted. Eliza Interiors and Design aims to deliver products that will enrich the human spirit and to integrate social and environmental responsibility at all times. Remember, next time you go shopping, Go Green Buy Vintage...
