As if there weren't enough to celebrate this season, we're adding some extra celebration worthy news about a new brand at The Organizing Store. Please join us as we extend a warm welcome to Lexington Company and get ready to fall in love with this All-American style brand, just as much as we did.
We discovered Lexington Company while traveling in Europe several years ago as we took in the sites, sounds and local shopping of Salzburg. Walking along the cobblestone streets, we stumbled upon a wonderful home store that had all the characteristics of Pottery Barn, with a side serving of European flavor. We browsed the shop like kids in a candy store, admiring all the things we couldn't find in the US. It was in this shop in Austria that we first fell in love with Lexington and its classic All-American, east coast style. We knew that others in the US would love it as much as we did and enjoy bringing the New England inspired brand into their own homes, as well as their vacation homes.
What was it about Lexington? The presentation, the displays and the merchandising were magnificent. Beds were layered and dressed, luxurious bath towels were stacked, tables were set, gifts and accessories romanced the collections, in an effortless sort of way. The textiles had a luxurious hand and every piece included a signature detail, including the signature Lexington rubber button closures on the pillowcases. Each piece was extremely beautiful and uncomplicated in every way. I knew right then that we had to have the Lexington Company brand for our own stores and I dreamed that one day we would.
I wasted no time. On the first day back in my office, I began researching the company and before you know it, I was having conversation with the Lindhe's about potentially working together to offer their brand in the US. The timing wasn't quite right, but I think it's safe to say, we had a good feeling about each other. Both companies were family owned and operated and we had a passion for fine products, the All-American East Hampton style, the beach and a love for good food, wine and family and friends around the table. A perfect match in many ways, most especially when it comes to family and entertaining.
Fast forward to today and Lexington Company launches at The Organizing Store as a category leader with nearly 500 products across the bedding, bath, tabletop, home decor and gift categories and with presence that excites us inside and out.
Meet Lexington Company: Founded in 1997 by husband and wife team Tommy and Kristina Lindhe, Stockholm-based Lexington Company is an international lifestyle brand named for the town where the American Revolutionary War began. The brand which centers on American history, New England style and traditional craftsmanship is the vision of CEO and Creative Director Kristina Lindhe and widely known in Europe for its American-inspired home decor and fashion. The Lindhe's saw an opportunity in the US for a relaxed luxury brand in America and the first US Lexington store was opened.
Influenced and inspired by the relaxed, sophisticated and elegant lifestyle of the Hampton’s, Lexington Company’s collections focus on the classic American cottage style of New England. With the Lexington Collections, it’s easy to combine colors and styles for your home in the city, the countryside or for the beach.
