Summer’s Backdrop: Block-Printed Table and Bed Linens by Studio Ford

The linens I’ve been noting for summer dinner parties—and summer bedrooms? That would be Collection IV, the latest line of handmade textiles from Studio Ford, based in LA (and frequent collaborators with Commune). The collection is inspired by the tradition of overshot weaving; popular in the US at the turn of the 19th century, it’s easily recognized by its repeated geometric patterns, but Studio Ford’s take is made using the block printing techniques that sparked their own beginnings.Take a look at some of the subtly colorful, subtly patterned—and, often, reversible—quilts, tablecloths, and throws.Photography by Giulio Ghirardi.Above: The block-printed percale Toledo…

How to Build a DIY Deck Lounger

Recently, my husband and I realized our dream of putting in a swimming pool, which we surrounded with a composite deck. And since we ended up with lengths of leftover decking, I saw an opportunity to put them to use by building a pair of lounge chairs. The design I came up with has backrests that fold down flat, angled legs for a modern look, and a long, slatted seat so we can put up our feet while watching the kids.
