I have been obsessed with monograms for years -- and monogram bedding is all the rage with every other catalogue store getting into the mix. Despite the ubiquitous presence of the monogramed pillows on a bed, I think this the classic look that will never truly go out of style (I have monogrammed pillow covers that I have had for 15 years). Recently I attended a trunk show featuring Leontine Linens and I have to report that their products feel as good as good as they look -- gorgeous and beautifully made. I think the monogrammed pillows are great, but I am not a huge fan of large monograms on duvet covers and bedspreads.
Leontine has both embroidered and appliqué monograms and trim, here is some of their lovely work:
