Reminiscent of the soft hues and laid back vibes of Southern California’s beaches, Parachute Home’s bedding collections — designed in Venice Beach — truly exude minimalist serenity. Colors like “bone,” “fog” and “blush” make for soothing layers of luxurious bedding. The bedding is available in percale, sateen and linen. We love the linen.
While linen gets a reputation for being rough and textured, don’t let the out-of-the-box feel deter you. After just a couple washes, the bedding softens right up. Parachute’s linen is crisp yet broken in. Ideal for those who like a casual look with the feel of luxury, this linen is made from 100-percent European flax, and promises to provide you both comfort and durability.
Like being wrapped in soft air, the linen Venice set provides breathable comfort that keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Parachute Home ditches the top sheet, so sets come simply with the fitted sheet and a duvet cover, although you can buy individual top sheets, if that’s your jam.
Eco-conscious sleepers will love that the materials are free of synthetics and chemicals, while the down comforters come from humanely treated ducks.
Casper is known for its mattresses, having pioneered the small package design thanks to a latex memory foam that allows the bed to fold up into a box the size of a bag of golf clubs, that you can have shipped to you and slip through your door with ease. Now, they’ve moved onto bedding, and we’re so on board.
The sheet sets come in three fabrications: Supima, linen and airy cotton. Casper has honed in on soft, washed-out colors for a simple, dreamy look. The 100-percent premium Supima (shown here) is the perfect balance of soft, crisp and airy.
The linen bedding comes pre-washed for broken-in softness, which is a game-changer for those who don’t want to hold out for the cozy feel. We especially love Casper’s grippy elastic, securing ties and blue labels to help you make the bed with ease and efficiency.
Casper’s 100-percent cotton shell duvet insert is a cloud of coziness we highly recommend. It’s made with ethically-sourced down fill, and is constructed with sewn-in chambers to keep the down in place. Here are the best ways to freshen linens, without chemicals.
