Leontine Linens, purveyor of fine handcrafted linens, opened their flagship New Orleans showroom in 2005. The business was expanding, having acquired Kentucky based linen company Eleanor Beard. The design concept began with a desire to incorporate the history of Eleanor Beard, told through the contemporary lens of Leontine Linens. Leontine Linens’ signature purple was woven throughout the space, from a “stitched” painted wall logo, to crystal chandeliers, to color washes over historic images from original Eleanor Beard catalogs. The design team provided custom millwork and display design, including sculpted high-gloss headboards and shelving units, as well as furnishings and artwork design.
