Called "Heritage 1833," the new line recreates many of the treasured styles of France’s rich textile tradition, starting from the year Garnier-Thiebaut (GT Linens) was founded, combining classical references with custom finishing touches, such as ladder-stitched hems and mitered corners, for the more sophisticated table.

With wonderful arabesques and scrolling botanicals in soft, mellow tones, the Heritage designs echo the themes of time-honored patterns. In "Milady" Çristal, for example, a natural linen weave is strewn with acanthus leaves, surrounding a center medallion that shimmers with a crystalline sheen, recalling architectural motifs of famous French gardens.

In a sumptuous mood, "Josephine Perle" features a scrolling pattern of tiny flowers, framed by an arabesque reminiscent of a luxuriant flowerbed. Woven of cotton damask, with two-color threads, the graceful pearl-grey design has a wide border.

Delving into the historical design of France's gardens, "Belle-de-Jour" creates an opulent pattern of interwoven flowers and leafy twigs. Fashioned of lustrous cotton damask, the classic design, shown in luminous sapphire and violet colorways, gleams as with the reflection from a garden pond. All of these new patterns, which come with four matching napkins, can set a formal or elegantly upscale-casual table.

Known worldwide for its vividly-styled table linens, in intricately woven motifs, Garnier-Thiebaut brings this unique design creativity to the new Heritage 1833 collection in stunning patterns that interpret classic French living ways for today's restaurant dining pleasure.
