When internationally eminent songstress, director and actor Barbra Streisand recently posted a Happy Birthday message to her beloved Coton de Tuléar Samantha, observant Instagrammers noticed a certain detail in the image. Streisand’s sweet little white companion, making her best puppy-dog eyes beside of white peonies, was also posing atop a wonderful rosebud-dappled carpet—made in Langhorne’s very own Wilton Jacquard mill.
Longtime Langhorne customer, interior designer Marcy Monheit of Rydal, PA, brought the photo of the lucky dog, nicknamed “Sammie,” to the Morrows’ attention.
“I’ve been buying from Bill [Morrow] for years and years and years,” said Monheit. Although the East Coast designer’s tastes tend more toward Langhorne’s Leopard, Zebra, Cosmos, Herringbone and Stria Cuillere lines, she instantly recognized the classic floral pattern of Ms. Streisand’s carpet. “It’s one of the Langhorne carpets my mother’s interior designer used in the house I grew up in,” she said.
The pattern is part of the Nantucket line, currently available through custom order. The Morrows are unsure how, exactly, the work of their heritage mill came to inhabit one of Ms. Streisand’s homes. But they would like to extend a formal invitation for the diva herself to come visit their headquarters anytime—including when she’s in town for her August 20 concert at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Naturally, Sammie is invited, too.c
