Two companies bring the softness and craftsmanship of fine European linens into American homes. Haute Home's Italian cotton and Belgian linens for bed and table are exquisitely hand-embroidered in Vietnam with motifs like bees and sunflowers whose centers comprise hundreds of French knots. Gracious Style has Belgian, Irish, and Czech linen damasks; cotton damasks from Italy; French embroidered tablecloths; and laces from England based on 18th- and 19th-century designs. Custom sizes and an array of monogram styles are available from both companies. Haute Home: $24-$550 at specialty stores; 415-552-5740; www.hautehome.net. Gracious Style: $12-$900 through the catalogue, 888-828-7170, or at www.graciousstyle.com.
