Monograms are a distinct way to add personalization to your home.  Monogrammed linens, bedding, pillows and other home accents are classic and provide a subtle way to mark future family heirlooms or to just personalize items for a classic look.

The monogram originated as a royal seal, then was simply used by artists to identify their work.  The Victorian era marked the monogram as a symbol of aristocracy.  Thus embroidering monograms on linens and engraving other household items became a sign of prestige.
