Kristina Lindhe, Lexington Company
Linen, stone, sea and sand as well as a laid-back East Coast lifestyle are some of the sources of inspiration for our classic collection created together with the Lexington Company. We interviewed Kristina Lindhe at Lexington to hear more about her and the collaboration between Lexington and Boråstapeter.
Tell us about yourself – who is Kristina Lindhe?
I am the founder, CEO and creative director of Lexington. My passion is our products, I’m so proud of everything we do! Our roots in American East Coast style, combined with our Swedish origins and the fact that quality is a constant focus for us are all important to me.
Tell us about the Lexington Company success story
The company was founded in 1997, and we started out with bed linen. Our inspiration was the classic man’s shirt, in terms of both design and quality. Everyone is familiar with the delightful feel of a freshly laundered shirt, made from quality fabric with the right fit. We wanted to bring that exact feeling to our bed linen – after all, you spend one third of life in bed, so why not do it in beautiful bedding? The bed linen you use makes a big difference to the experience.
After bed linen came terry towels, tablecloths, napkins and a whole host of other products for the home in the Lexington style. Much later we also introduced clothing, at the request of our customers actually – if you like a particular style, you want the complete look!
I believe our style is easy to recognise, easy to like, and we ensure a high level of quality in everything we do – it feels sustainable and stands the test of time. I believe those are our principal success factors.
