It is officially Autumn (as of Sept. 22), and yet it feels like we are weeks deep into the season with the many projects and preparations keeping us busy at TL at Home.
Last week, I returned home from a 2-day trip to NYC to attend the Home Fashions Market, where we met with many of our partner mills from Portugal to explore beautiful new product options.
Next month, we’ll be heading to High Point Market (Oct. 22-26), which is going to be especially exciting this time around because we’ve moved into a fabulous new showroom – Broad Hall – with our national sales management partner CODARUS. To usher in our bright, new space (on the 3rd floor), we’ll be hosting a special event, “Brunch in Bed with TL at Home,” to welcome the designer community to market.
(Don’t miss it! We’re giving away Vintage Velvet scarves as gifts to our guests!)
All the while, we’ve been developing new collections for the New Year, working on photo shoots and laying out our 2023 Color Catalog.
Amid the buzz of activity, I got to thinking about TL at Home’s mission statement. Up until now, it has been an unwritten yet understood tenet centered on our “Made with Love” motto.
It’s time to put on paper our pledge and promise to you, our valued customers + colleagues. Please see below.
As always, with love,
TL at Home: A Tradition of Luxury, Quality and Service.
Fifty years and counting of crafting luxury bedding from only the finest fabrications, customizing to our clients’ specifications, and delivering livable luxury that cares because it is “Made with Love” – from fiber to finish.
“Light, airy and breezy.” These are attributes kindred to Designer Kara Miller‘s approach to designing + decorating.
They are also words that she uses to describe her affinity for TL at Home‘s luxury bedding, and why we are her go-to for her clients’ bedrooms.
“First and foremost, we love the quality of TL at home’s bedding. It has a very soft hand, and it ages well. We also love the flexibility of being able to dictate the colors I need. They offer a beautiful array of colors, and we always find the perfect one we need for what we are working on at that time.”
Kara Miller Interiors is expanding its relationship with TL at Home via a new endeavor, “that we are about to launch, in the next few months.”
Without revealing too much, Miller excitedly shared a few details.
“We will be offering some of our favorite picks to a larger audience. People often ask us where we got this or that, so we’re developing a new website to reach a broader base of customers and give them access to some of our favorite things. That, of course, includes TL at Home and some other brands we also love.”
We’re happy to report the summer markets (Dallas, Atlanta and Las Vegas) were better than expected. While traffic was a bit off, orders were high! We’re very encouraged by our customers’ collective BIG thumbs up for our new Summer 2022 intros – in particular, Georgie, Alice, Maria + Rumor.
More personally, I’m preparing to send my younger son off to college in the Fall. He’ll be attending Colby College, where he plans to study computer science.
Looking ahead, we are also in the midst of preparing to move into a new showroom in High Point, NC, with our national sales management partner, CODARUS. Renovations are well underway, and we are excited to welcome you! Be sure to make plans to see us during Market, Oct. 22-26.
As always, with love,

So says owner Shandon Whistler, adding: “We do not do e-commerce.”
If a customer wants something from the upstairs home textiles and accessories boutique, “they can call us up on the phone, and we will send it over – anything they want that we offer.”
It’s the way Shandon successfully runs her longtime business, based in Indianapolis, IN. “We like to do one bed at a time, one table at a time. We’re very intentional about what we do.”
She goes on: “At Parkside Linen, we are considered experts at making beds. We create a sleep system for our customers from the mattress up, literally.”
Parkside carries Vispring mattresses, which are handmade in England, as the foundation of their sleep assortment – “and then we go from there,” she explained.
That means a robust offering of “wonderful down bedding products from many different sources” PLUS a variety of luxury linens.
TL at Home is proudly part of the product mix.
Shandon raves about TL’s bedding selection, which she described as broad and “all good! I can’t say enough of TL at Home. It’s a company that offers great products and the greatest service. That is their hallmark. If they don’t have something you need, they’ll help you find an alternative. They care and work hard to solve your problem.”
And our sampling, she stresses, “is wonderful! For a small store like ours, nice samples are hugely important, and Shari offers great samples.”
Thanks so much, Shandon! We ♥ ParksideLinen, too!
Our Noah Atlantic duvet cover + shams and coordinating Noah Atlantic tassel pillows grace this beautifully appointed master bedroom of a private luxury home in Avon, CO.

Kudos and thanks to our local CODARUS sales manager Robin Dorn, who handles the three-state region of Colorado, Montana + Wyoming, for helping us collaborate with LKW on this project, and many others in her territory.
*Noah Atlantic is not in our current line. But it is available for custom orders.
And thank goodness for that!
Turning the page on a fickle year filled with starts and stops, we are fixated on forging ahead. We’ve become experts at adapting, adjusting, overcoming….When hiccups happen, we don’t hold our breath – we inhale, exhale and…prevail.
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2022 is the year of the 🐅Tiger🐅 – a symbol of strength and courage.
So empowering 💟
…Which brings me closer to home: 2022 also represents a major milestone for me, as it marks my 10th ANNIVERSARY as the proud owner of TL at Home. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Whatever this year may bring, I’m ready and willing.
With 💜 love,
