Tell us about your business.

Antage Bleu was started because, like so many people, what I wanted in the market place didn’t exist so I felt the need to create it. I’m a creator by nature, a business developer, retailer & choreographer by trade & a lover of linens & interiors by heart. It’s been the perfect storm— culminating in a very challenging, exciting & rewarding company. Van Gogh said it best, “I dream my painting & then I paint my dream.” Fashion, architecture, antiques, & vintage motifs all intertwine to inspire my vision but it’s the fabrics & textiles that drive the design. I touch, feel, fall in love with the fabrics, an idea pops into my head, I sketch my vision, we fine tune it & bring it to life. My hope is for Antage Bleu to evolve into a lifestyle brand, meeting the needs of the AB Girl by expanding into furniture, décor & apparel while staying true to the Antage Bleu mission & aesthetic. Linens are the core of the company, but we have some incredible products just waiting to come to life.

What makes your business stand out?

The ABCs of Antage Bleu ... ATTENTION TO DETAIL. Box pleats, oversized ruffles, mitered edges, bone buttons, color blocking, designer fit and finish. We are not the average linen company; Vintage Drama & Modern Luxury are our middle names. BEAUTIFUL FABRICS. Irish linen, French twill, Italian wools, American jacquards, organic cottons. We are addicted to the most luxurious & decadent fabrics. CONSCIENCE PRACTICE. We are committed to being made in the USA, using natural fibers, being papered, not plastic, heirloomed not fast fashioned, lean, local & committed to green enterprise. DOCTOR'S ORDERS. For us, safety is paramount. We are dedicated to exceeding the American Academy of Pediatrics regulations and recommendations. Our bedding goes above & beyond by saying yes to industrial strength elastic encompassing the entire crib sheet, hidden zipper enclosures, hypoallergenic fill, natural fibers & American craftsmanship & saying no to bumpers per the AAP.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Where there's a will, there's a way.
