Catherine Roehm's entertaining advice with Anichini linens

In the article What Oscar de la Renta And Bill Blass Taught Me, Carolyne Roehm, Architectural Digest‘s special projects editor, speaks of the entertaining advice she received from two special mentors in her life, Oscar de la Renta and Bill Blass. Anichini is honored to have been one of her choices for the table.

“This particular (place) setting also echoes my love of the great Dutch flower paintings of the 17th century, with their rich shades and the romantic groupings of flowers and fruits. Roses, hypericum berries, and ripe peaches echo the tones in my favorite Greek dishes, as do the red candles; white Anichini napkins pick up a detail in the china. With this setting I served cream of red and yellow pepper soup, which enhances the color story and happens to be delicious, too.”

Featured are Anichini’s Grazuole napkins, whose classic design resembles a 19th century heirloom. They are 100% linen, hand finished with an intricate embellishment of drawn threadwork. They are nearly the last of their kind.

Anichini Cashmere Blanket in Architectural Digest

Architectural Digest showcases Michael Hirtenstein’s remarkable redesign of a lower Manhattan apartment building originally designed by architect Enrique Norten. Working with Architectural designer Thomas Juul-Hansen and decorator Amy Lau, Hirtenstein consolidated five separate apartments into a showstopping three-floor spread that totals 8,600 square feet, with an additional 5,500 square feet of outdoor space.

“Michael is obsessed with tactile quality and dimensionality. You can see it in the exquisite fabrics and window treatments, which are like couture creations,” says Lau, who has worked with Hirtenstein on three previous residences. “He definitely likes bling, but the bling here has restraint—it’s a subtle knockout.”

For the bed, they chose ANICHINI’s cashmere, hand loomed in Nepal and available in three weaves and 160 colors, it is the most exquisite cashmere in the marketplace.
