Modern Customizable Bedding from Inmod
I think the last exciting thing to happen to modern bedding was the introduction of Amenity's exquisite and covetable nature-inspired duvets, which were at once so simple and so fresh that it was almost like seeing a bed for the very first time.
Inmod has recently launched a collection of customizable duvet covers that I have to declare just as exciting. In fact, dare I say, it's the most brilliant thing I have ever seen. As of now, they offer 13 different designs that take their cue from a lot of popular textile motiffs (cherry blossoms, abstract shapes) and then gives the buyer complete control over all detailing. As an example, you can choose the color of the cherry blossom embroidery and a separate color for the stem--the design itself then goes on the background color of your choice. Swoon!
Their design tool is really very user friendly, showing each customized change as you make it, and also simulating how your design will look in a room setting. I fiddled around with a few different combinations to try to figure out pricing and found that it varies based on the fabric (the choices are cotton, a linen and cotton blend, silk dupioni and a silk taffetta). Naturally cotton was the most inexpensive with most designs being just under $200 and so on until the last fabric (silk taffetta) which was usually well over $400. It is definitely very comparable to other modern bedding designers...and all with the added glamour of being your very own creation.
Inmod's new duvets are a very innovative and just superbly executed addition to modern bedding--in fact, I urge you to rush over and play with it yourself. Enjoy!
