Eleanor Beard

The Eleanor Beard studio was founded in 1921, by its namesake in the small town of Hardinsburg, Kentucky. The Studio developed into the premier provider of couture linens for bed, bath, table and person, catering to those who appreciate the handmade and hard-to-find techniques used by the studio. Leontine’s founder Jane Scott Hodges, much like Eleanor Beard, celebrates the notion of sustaining a truly American art form and making it part of discriminating homes across the world. In 2002, Jane Scott Hodges became the proud owner of Eleanor Beard Studio.
