While fashion has been crushing on tennis for a while now—think: pleated skirts, sporty socks, and Stan Smiths—the preppy look is suddenly serving a new spot: the home. Instead of Alex Eagle Sporting Club, Sporty & Rich, Tory Sport, and Death to Tennis, brands like Pieces and even IKEA are scoring points in the tennis department. 

As the U.S. Open begins—and as Wilson opens a pop-up museum and store in New York’s SoHo—we’re seeing grassy greens and tennis whites everywhere, too. Even this past week, Hay posted a one-of-a-kind couch called The Aftermath of a Garden Party by Icelandic artist Loji Höskuldsson. The vibe? The brand’s beloved Mags sofa embroidered with tennis imagery, among other poetic motifs. It’s official. The sport is here to stay.
