Serena & Lily is an upscale linens and homewares company based in Sausalito, Calif. The company originated in October 2003 when Serena Dugan and Lily Kanter met and shared a desire for sophisticated options in nursery design. Eight months later, they released their first collection of nursery bedding with Serena’s original fabric designs, offering consumers fresh and unexpected looks for the nursery. The designs quickly became the go-to choice of tastemakers and celebrity moms alike, and created demand for the duo to apply their signature color and pattern to children’s bedding. The company has since evolved into a lifestyle luxury brand that offers unique home décor for every room in the house, including bedding, furniture, rugs, lighting, baby gifts, paint and fabric by the yard. In 2009, the company launched its online Bazaar with one-of-a-kind and limited edition items that give a house a soul.
