Lit House is a concept for a brand new kind of home decor. Inspired by classic novels and children's stories, it transports beloved worlds off of the printed page and into your home. 

Reilly Toile

This modern take on a French toile is inspired by John Kennedy Toole’s classic, A Confederacy of Dunces. The story is set in New Orleans, Louisiana and follows a cast of characters, including Ignatius J. Reilly, the “Don Quixote of the French Quarter.”

The colorways were inspired by Ignatius's love of food.

The artwork was drawn by hand in pencil to create a warm, classic look.

Jungle Kingdom

This pattern is inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s collection of stories that comprise The Jungle Book. Featuring the flora and fauna of the Indian rainforest, this pattern will show a bit of your wild side.

Inspired by shifting colors throughout the day, the colorways range from deep blue, to dusty teal, to electric green. The animals and plants were drawn in pencil for a kid-friendly approach to the mysterious jungle.

Featuring French architecture and a certain ribbon-brimmed hat, this pattern evokes the world of Ludwig Bemelmans’ classic series, Madeline

The colorways are sophisticated yet kid-friendly. A combination of pencil and digital drawing was used for a look that is classic and tactile.
