MCM bedding that doesn't suck...
Posted: Tue May 26, 2009 8:18 am
or cost an arm and a leg.
I just bought a new bed and I am building a platform for it. What I have discovered is the bedding options out there are ugly. Even the expensive stuff isn't too thrilling.
Anyway I have checked IKEA, Target, Dwell, Fold Bedding, Crate & Barrel and I am unimpressed. I might consider some material to make a duvet cover if it's the right color and pattern. Specifically, I am looking for a duvet cover, pillow cases, and bed spread.
My newly finished master bedroom has light blue-turquoise-ish walls, black floor and beams, and a white ceiling. my bed frame color is undetermined. I am thinking of a cover in either orange or chartreuse, but I am open for anything that works.
I like this duvet here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/spins_lps/ ... otostream/
anyone got suggestions, post them up! thanks

I'm surprised you didn't find anything decent at Tarjay. They usually have some really nice bedding options, with fun retro colors and patterns.
Check out CB2.com... they sometimes have some decent patterns.

i do like the duvet there.
I have found lots of swell retro stuff at Target also. The time to max out is back to school-they do a lot for the dorm room set.
I've also made quite a few duvets from retro fabric. Uphostery fabric in a standard brocade actually gets pretty soft and nice after you wash it a bit.
Slim and I had to put aside our partially finished quilt top of old hawaiian shirts, but I'll get back to it sooner or later.
I tend to prefer the duvet thing, while Slim likes blankets. I have to say that vintage blankets look pretty great. Think pendleton, hudson bay, or even scandinavian.
I have purchased blankets as gifts from this great mill in Minnesota. They are a tremendous value. Some of the designs fit a mod room pretty well....
If you follow vintage blankets on Ebay, you may be pleasantly surprised.

A few trees for you to bark up.
Really good looking stuff and fairly priced. Have never worked with them so can't offer much there.
Great quality and very reputable
As for Target, they have a Panton style pattern in stock currently in two colors. We got both. The sheets aren't the softest but after a few washes they feel fine. The blankets are cool though.
Here they are:

We liked the sheen and pattern. They weren't expensive. It was a year or 2 ago, though. Not sure if they still carry them.

Might be a little too wild, but have you tried

Another way of creating a duvet cover is to buy a couple of flat sheets in a pattern and quality you like and sew them together, using a few short pieces of velcro on the opening end. Fairly easy and quick if you know your way round a sewing machine, and the sheet edges are already finished.

I wondered why my picture was getting so many hits.

After I saw this thread I knew there was another bedding company that had some good patterns, but it took me a few days to remember. Ok so it finally dawned on me when I glanced at the tag in my PJs...
Garnet Hill has some good sheet patterns:

Have you tried http://www.inmod.com/design-your-own-bedding.html
? I'm looking for a duvet also and it's the closest I've come to finding anything I like.
BTW, if anybody comes across an asanoha pattern duvet, pillow, well...anything, let me know please!!!

Overstock had this, which sort of looks like what you were looking at.

Hey Joe, don't know if you found something yet but I came across some in my search that you might like (I still haven't found any asanoha patterns!)

I think the Coffee Circles Duvet Set [Coffee] and Rhombic Duvet Set [Aqua] are pretty nice...but not the colors I'm looking for.
I'm also looking for an appropriate shower curtain...I might give up and go w/ this Ikea one in grey http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70104805

Overstock sends way too many e-mails...
I'll have to fix that but at least it isn't mailed hard copies.
My bedroom is crazy enough with patterns on the walls but
some of their bedding seems good. They sent this yesterday...
Many other ones i had not seen earlier.
I have to use solids but nice to know that you can just get shams.
Prices are good and i bet will be even better in Jan.
