Coral & Tusk Completes Your Nursery

Pillows, Artwork, and Doodads

coral and tusk!

You never considered yourself an oversharer — and then you went and had a baby. (Yes, you did just describe the minutia of Señor Snooze’s bedtime ritual to a stranger on the subway.)

So it’s no surprise you’re contemplating every last detail of his room with anyone who will listen.

Strike up a conversation with Brooklyn-based Coral & Tusk. No one does sweet-meets-sophisticated artwork, pillows, and doodads better. The latest collection stays true to founder Stephanie Housley’s look of storybook-style illustrations embroidered onto yards and yards of earthy linen.

This season she turns to the American West for inspiration, with drawings of foxes, deer, bears, tepees, and feathers. The aesthetic is highly versatile — equally at home in rooms that read contemporary or vintage, minimalist or layered, boy or girl — which allows you to repurpose the wares as your taste evolves.

And that’s no minor detail.

Available at John Derian Dry Goods, 10 East 2nd Street, between Second Avenue and Bowery (212-677-8408 or johnderian.com); online at coralandtusk.com, $20-$104.
