Anthro's Latest Home Collaboration Is A Seaside Dream

Once in a while a collection is so expertly curated and cohesive it conjures up a classic film or novel. Anthropologie's latest collab does just that. Made in conjunction with L.A.-based boutique Lost & Found, it reminds us of the dreamy, sentimental story The Sea, The Sea by Iris Murdoch, a 1978 Booker prize-winning novel that takes place on the English coast. The muted indigo linens, black stoneware, and green glass ahead just as deftly illustrate an afternoon by the shore.
Summer textiles can often be about flashy, in-your-face colors, but these Shibori-dyed shades and natural jute textures give a table a classy and relaxed vibe. Click ahead for our top picks for that next chill dinner soiree. Or, just pack one of the tablecloths (and that book) for a solo day in the sand.
