Pine Cone Hill looks to the '40s and '50s for inspiration
Michele SanFilippo -- Home Textiles Today, March 8, 2004
Pine Cone Hill introduced several new looks this spring inspired by the fashions of the 1940s and 1950s. New offerings include Palm Beach Lily, Corsage, Daisy-Mae Eyelet and Polka Dot sheeting and blankets.
The Palm Beach Lily quilt began as a piece of vintage wallpaper whose lilies were recreated in aqua blue and pink colorways. Coordinating accessories in a soft yellow, white and pink woven ticking add a tailored accent. Delicate Daisy-Mae eyelet, coverlets, shams, bedskirts and shower curtains continue the party dress theme.
Also new this spring are the colorful collection of Corsage quilts in shades of citrus, pebble and pale pink. Bold graphic roses reverse to seersucker ginghams in the quilts' colorways. Hannah, a new floral stripe sheeting pattern, also serves as a companion to Corsage pink.
The new Cape Cod Toile quilt offers soft blues and pinks in a conversational toile of sailboats, cottages and lighthouses. The quilt reverse to an aqua, blue and white ticking that is also available in bedskirts, as well as standard and euro shams.
Continuing with fashion from the 1940s is the new Polka Dot pattern in pink, blue and multi colorways for sheets, duvets, bedskirts and shower curtains. Reversible cotton fleece Dot blankets come in color combinations of white and pink, lime, periwinkle or yellow.
