Today’s latest theme is as clean and fresh as you’d expect a theme named Linen to be. It’s also an impressively adaptable theme with an array of options that make personalizing it simple and easy. If you’re publishing articles in a magazine, pages for a business site, or your own personal blog, you’ll find Linen’s elegant style perfect for you. And it’s yours for the lifetime of your blog for only $68.
Just like the other premium themes from The Theme Foundry Linen is packed with features. Linen beautifully highlights posts with featured images by sliding them across the home page. You can add thumbnails to each post and upload your own logo or custom background. You can even customize the typography with a selection of seven accent fonts and eight different body fonts!
Read more about Linen’s features on the Theme Showcase and preview it right now, live on your blog, from Appearance → Themes.

I really, really like this one! Thanks.
Apr 28th at 9:05 pm
Nice theme … but still gonna stick to Mystique.
Apr 28th at 9:12 pm
Apr 28th at 9:13 pm
How seasonably appropriate!
Apr 28th at 9:15 pm
I am really happy with this one! I will say I have not liked some of the previous themes coming out. Yet, I do think it is a bit pricey, perhaps you could explain to me if there are some hidden features that make this the price it is?
Apr 28th at 9:34 pm
It’s a nice looking theme … I have to say that these premium themes are way too rich for my pocket though.

I was just admiring this theme on the Theme Foundry site. I love it’s simplicity and elegance. It’s the first paid theme that’s appealed to my sense of style. Congratulations on adding it to the menu of possibilities.
Apr 28th at 10:26 pm
It seems every new theme requires payment. Not the best way to treat loyal WordPress bloggers.
Apr 28th at 10:44 pm
Looks way too nice to be paid for. Consider dropping the fee on this one please!
Apr 28th at 11:04 pm
Τhis is exactly what i want for my blog.
Please give us a free magazine style theme with Featured Post Slider!
None from the free themes have something like this.
Apr 28th at 11:31 pm
Thank you for constantly coming up with different theme options — the diversity of options on WordPress is amazing!
Apr 28th at 11:57 pm
Nice ‘n clean!
Apr 28th at 11:58 pm
Wow, this is gorgeous — just wish it were free! So many new free ones to choose from — I think I’ll stick with one of those!
Apr 29th at 12:03 am
Nice. Eventually I’ll take the plunge and buy one of the slider themes.
Apr 29th at 1:50 am
I like the lighter themes – I find you have too many dark themes. But something with a unique header space and small-print fonts are nice. Something classy.
Apr 29th at 2:06 am
Pretty, but I’d stick to my present theme.
Apr 29th at 2:33 am
I was just lamenting to myself how limited the fonts are for the .com blogs like mine. This is intriguing. Can one have a trial spin?
Apr 29th at 3:08 am
Just getting started will soon try it out.
Apr 29th at 3:37 am
Easy theme again.
I like it!
Apr 29th at 3:43 am
Very fresh and crisp.
Apr 29th at 4:46 am
It’s very plain and simple.
Apr 29th at 5:45 am
Apr 29th at 6:04 am
Look like WordPress.com has been pretty aggressive in rolling out new theme recently.. this is GOOD!
Although most of the users may not be willing to pay for a theme, but sometime it may be an exception too, just to make the blog look per what you need!
Apr 29th at 6:15 am
Great work! But looks similar to previous ones. can we have some more colorful choices?
Apr 29th at 6:27 am
Apr 29th at 9:16 am
Not so new really. But it’s always nice to have one more option.
And, yes, more dark themes, please!
Apr 29th at 9:44 am
It’s really clean, simple, functional, and the best of all it reminds me summer.
Apr 29th at 10:56 am
Is there a way to see what you mean by sliding posts and thumbnails (and the different fonts) without buying this first? I have tried previewing it, but I don’t know what you mean by these terms.
Apr 29th at 11:02 am
I love the simplicity of it. Unfortunately, it’s not free. I’m looking forward to new free themes.
Apr 29th at 11:33 am
I really love this new theme – Very fresh and clean and I would switch over to it in a heartbeat … But I wish it wasn’t $68 – It’s a bit too simple for that amount of money.
Apr 29th at 11:41 am
It looks nice, but it’s not exactly what I’m looking for.
Apr 29th at 12:43 pm
I like it…too bad i don’t have spare 68 dollars. Maybe next one could be for free?
Apr 29th at 1:08 pm
Really like this one but feels a little too minimalist for sixty eight bucks. I don’t know, but really do like it.
Apr 29th at 2:19 pm
Looks great! Does this work on self-hosted?
Apr 29th at 6:08 pm
Sorry but it’s not really my style.
Apr 29th at 6:45 pm
Slick. Good work. Price is a bit steep though.
Apr 29th at 7:18 pm
I like clean. =)
Apr 29th at 8:36 pm
I like to change themes every once in a while, and having to pay for a theme is not worth it for me. I hope that WordPress continues to submit free themes and hope that paid themes are not going to become the trend or the rule rather than the exception.
Apr 29th at 11:30 pm
Nice! I would like to see a bit more color though.
Apr 29th at 11:37 pm
This is really nice.
Apr 30th at 12:55 am
Nice and simple. Thanks.
Apr 30th at 2:59 am
I like this theme. Well-designed, clean and (most important for me) good choice of fonts and font sizes. Don’t see what’s so linen-y about it, but I guess that is the designer’s creative license.
Apr 30th at 5:29 am
Crisp and clean. I like it.
Apr 30th at 7:44 am
Looks great-cleanly uncluttered.
Apr 30th at 8:39 am
It is amazing.
Apr 30th at 2:42 pm
An extremely professional look, but without being staid or formal. My favorite feature is that you can easily customize type fonts. It is so cool to be able to harmonize type fonts with content.
Apr 30th at 3:14 pm
If this were one of the free themes I would be ALL OVER it! I love clean, crisp themes, they don’t take away from the content. Great work!
Apr 30th at 3:14 pm
Linen.. looks simple and clean.. I’m waiting for the free edition.
Apr 30th at 3:41 pm
Looks great, but I want to see more free themes.
Apr 30th at 7:21 pm
I like it, very professional.
Apr 30th at 10:00 pm
Glad to see continuing process on the themes. Looking forward to seeing what is coming up for both my free and self hosted sites.
May 1st at 3:32 am
Would be great if free!
May 1st at 7:30 am
I hope you all will be releasing more colourful themes.
May 1st at 7:13 pm
Beautiful theme, hope there is going to be a similar free one soon.
May 2nd at 1:09 am
This is definitely for photography showcase blog, which is great for me in the future.
May 2nd at 12:30 pm
It’s just cool and simple, love it!!
May 2nd at 1:11 pm
I love this, but i am not willing to fork out that much money. We need more free themes!
May 2nd at 3:54 pm
A little too simple for my taste, especially with the price tag!
May 2nd at 4:51 pm
I really like it!
May 2nd at 5:15 pm
I’d buy it if I get the option to dry clean. Otherwise I’ll stick with my blanket.
May 2nd at 5:17 pm
I like black blogs.
May 2nd at 5:36 pm
Interesting. But I like the one I have now.
May 2nd at 6:30 pm
Now that’s a very pretty theme! Just a pity I’m not writing regularly enough to get myself a $68-theme… yet.
May 2nd at 6:46 pm
I was expecting a free clean simple theme with large custom header image.
May 2nd at 6:47 pm
Thank you! I like it!
May 2nd at 8:41 pm
The most beautiful theme ever. Worth every dollar. Thanks Foundry!
May 3rd at 2:36 am
I love it! Very impressive!
May 3rd at 5:36 am
If I didn’t love the theme I’m using right now to bits, I would use this for sure! x
May 3rd at 7:37 am
I love this theme and am actually considering plopping down the moolah for it. Good job, WordPress!
May 3rd at 4:45 pm
I like the minimalist ones like this one, I find they are the best for applying your own logos.
May 3rd at 5:37 pm
I like it, clean and Simple. Well done and easy to read. The most important quality is readability!
May 3rd at 9:37 pm
Nice and comprehensive information for everyone. My compliments for WordPress!
May 4th at 9:33 am
Nice! Simple and clean. Great job
May 4th at 6:24 pm
Oh my. Yes yes yes yes yes. Everything is right with this theme.
May 5th at 8:07 am
OK. I caved. Bought the theme and installed it yesterday. It looks AWESOME! Thanks so much WP.
May 5th at 11:34 am
Linen – appropriately named.
May 5th at 4:00 pm
It’s nothing different than from some of those already available.
May 5th at 5:20 pm
I actually like it.
May 5th at 5:23 pm
Awesome and clean but I think it’s priced a little too high.
May 5th at 10:46 pm
What does that say on it? Singing sand?
May 6th at 3:28 am
Nice and simple.
May 6th at 8:48 am
Yes, definitely very well thought theme which catches the eye at the first sight. Reading content is incredibly good as well, 9 out of 10 from me as in it could always be better.
May 6th at 3:34 pm
It’s clean, simple, professional, and I love both the ‘Read More’ function on the articles and the slidebar at the top.
May 6th at 5:30 pm
May 7th at 8:07 am
This is almost the same as Duster, which is free.
May 7th at 5:42 pm
I like the sliding option. Good work!
