Stationery Reborn

One might say that Christmas has come early for me this year, thanks an exciting new collaboration that I can’t wait to share with you.

I’ve been a fan of Snow & Graham, a Chicago-based producer of fine stationery, wrapping papers, calendars and other fantastic paper items, for years. In fact, when it comes time to purchase a card for a friend, I normally head straight to Sam Flax on the Westside or Paper Source in Virginia-Highland to, more often than not, find myself leaving with a fabulous new Snow & Graham product. If you’re a stationery nerd and design fanatic like myself, I’m sure you can relate. The motifs are unfailingly fresh, fashion-forward and elegant, and the paper and printing quality is always tops.

Happily, it seems that Garnet Hill shares my penchant; the company will debut a number of pretty new products featuring Snow & Graham’s signature graphic designs for the 2010 holiday season. These include sumptuous supima flannel and cotton percale bedding and cheerful doormats now, and in the future, Garnet Hill plans to extend the collaboration even further by introducing lots of additional home and fashion items with the telltale Snow & Graham touch. Even better, two of the patterns used in the current collection, Tweets and Cocoa Cups, are already my favorites. Keep an eye out for the introductions below (and more!) when the collection becomes available at on September 15.
