This week, luxury stationer Dempsey & Carroll launched a collaboration with Sister Parish Design, the company founded by Parish’s granddaughter and great-granddaughter to continue her aesthetic into modern day. For Dempsey & Carroll, Sister Parish Design has devised two boxed sets, the “Desmond” and the “Serendipity,” two patterns that recall the cheerful, preppy-chic work of Parish and Hadley. $60 each, dempseyandcarroll.com
