Sumptuous new Boxwood Linens was conceptualized to fill a long-neglected niche in the local monogram market. The fine linens and embroidery boutique was opened by sisters Lindsey Amiralai, Elizabeth Webster and Linda Webster with partners Bret Duhon and Mimi Wadsworth, sibling co-owners of down-the-street Boxwood Interiors. The original concept expanded from bedding and bath basics to include bibs and crib sets for baby; bedroom, bathroom and tabletop goods; and luxe loungewear, cashmere capes, silk boudoir pillows and quilted slippers. Duhon designed the space, hanging chandeliers from exposed rafters above shelves brimming with overstuffed pillows, crisp bed sheets and bath towels from D Porthault, Julia B, Libeco, Kumi Kookoon, Kassatex and Allegria. In boxes along the back wall are 16 custom monogram styles (and counting), all designed by the sisters in consultation with Lauren Pendleton of Boxwood Interiors. (Turnaround time for in-house monogram service is just five days.) While the overall effect is bright white, there is plenty of room for gilded flower studies by artist Tommy Mitchell, Alexandra von Furstenberg accessories and laundering soaps and scents from The Laundress. Even the tufted headboards are for sale, borrowed from the environs of Boxwood Interiors. Sweet dreams, indeed. Boxwood Linens, 1839 W. Alabama St., 713.528.1501, boxwoodlinens.com.
