Elizabeth L. Barbatelli

What does E. Braun & Co. of Beverly Hills offer that is different from other linen purveyors?

We provide a made-to-order and atelier-style service to our clients with a carefully curated collection of luxury bed, bath and table linen essentials, catering to their style and interior design needs. We offer a range of fine linens, throws, and accessories from high-end artisan crafters which we design ourselves or curate from some of the world’s most prestigious brands. In fact, we recently added fine French Limoges and hand-forged Austrian silver service to our collection.

While we are the purveyors of luxury, we service the yacht from the master stateroom to the staff/crew quarters with varying qualities ranging through the highest quality available in Egyptian cotton, silk, and linen. From classic and refined to artistically designed embellishments, we complement the finest in interiors, furniture and fine art. Our collection of table linens features designs from the world’s rarest European embroidery and applique to casual and whimsical placemats and napkins perfect for any occasion.

We offer a vast array of Egyptian and Giza cotton terrycloth towels, hand-tufted rugs, quilted mats, and linen guest towels, with nearly every option available, from mattress pads to down pillows and beach towels to bath towels.

When our E. Braun & Co collection does not offer what is appropriate for a particular project, Liz often researches, designs, and sources to meet the needs of the complete superyacht experience.

What can a client expect during the process?

Our process of working with a client is a particularly personal and one uniquely tailored to the client’s needs and the experience they are aspiring to enjoy or provide to their guests on board.

First, we take inventory of the overall design aesthetic, size, and sensibilities that the client has for their yacht. We may look at photos or renderings of the interior and review fabric swatches to get a clear sense of the textures, patterns, artistic embellishments, and colour motifs. Then, the fun begins and we put together a unique collection stateroom by stateroom, main salon to entertainment decks to dining salons suited for their lifestyle, and complementing the design of the yacht. Whether we are outfitting a new build, mid-design, or re-furbish, we complete the experience with an extensive presentation of design concepts and selections that include linens and accessories to turn their vision into a reality.
