Words by Jen Nurick.
We may be biased in thinking that the focal point of the bedroom is—no prizes for guessing—the bed, and the rest of the room the proverbial planets that orbit around it. If this is true—and we think it’s true—how can we harmonise both? To maximise your bed linens, it’s important to consider the setting in which they are used—do your bedroom accessories complement or dull your bed’s potential to shine? Below, a curation of 7 design disruptors to keep in mind for ideas, in order to keep your Bed Threads in good company.

It would be remiss of us to compile the ultimate list of design disruptors to know without including interior design whisperer to the fashion and celebrity set, Ryan Korban. Working across both public and private spaces, Korban’s signature is indelibly stamped on the homes and flagship Soho store of Alexander Wang in New York. With a rolodex that includes the likes of James Franco, Kanye West, and wife Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic, Korban’s monochromatic use of colour has become somewhat of a visual cue, with marble accents and black and white photography—born of a fascination with Helmut Newton—helping to give the designer’s aesthetic away. Korban’s Instagram reads like a family-friendly fifty shades of grey, making it a meticulous mood board for the luxurious bedroom decorator interested in making the most of their Bed Threads.
Founded in Copenhagen in 2017—the home of the effortlessly stylish—ceramics-driven company Raawii produce vases and other objects of desire that are equal parts interesting in shape as they are dressed in brilliant colour. Each collection, drawing on a wealth of inspirations from Cubism to Minimalism, delivers multifunctional geometric vessels that make for perfect bedside partners. Available in a range of primary and pastel colours, with variable sizes to store jewellery, display flowers or stand alone, contrast a Raawii vase against our ink or rosewater set or opt for a complementary colour to bring together a monochromatic look.
A graduate from prestigious London fashion institution Central Saint Martins, with hours clocked at Bottega Venetta, Louis Vuitton and Maison Margiela, Alex Foxton is the clothing designer turned painter to keep in mind as you furnish your bedroom. With a concentration on masculinity and the physique at the fore, Foxton deploys subversive colours to paint the male form anew in washes of yellows, pinks and purples. Although we wouldn’t blame you for opting for a singular colour scheme, draw on Foxton’s palette when selecting your Bed Threads to see how well our colours harmonise together and customise your bundle for a painterly bedroom that’s anything but ordinary.

A Central Saint Martins alumnus, Helle Mardahl’s eponymous line of decorative lamps and sculptural accoutrements combines form with function to deliver one of a kind pieces to pair back with your bedroom. Born out of Copenhagen, Mardahl’s offerings reimagine everyday objects like rocks and eggs that are then cast in glass that is handblown in Copenhagen, meaning no two pieces are ever the same. Mardahl’s practice evolves each object through inventive use of colour, asymmetry and a speckling effect, rounding out the chicest alternatives to the boring bedside lamp that would do nothing to draw attention to your chosen linens—especially our charcoal or fog offerings that would synchronise perfectly.
Obsessed with the late Italian architect—and founder of postmodern design collective Memphis Milano—Ettore Sottsass, 26-year-old collector Raquel Cayre has amassed a cult following for her 80s and 90s themed Instagram feed littered with interior design from yesteryears. Intermixing works by Sottsass alongside unique spaces, furniture and objects, Cayre’s Instagram account is both homage to Sottsass and host to unadulterated appreciations for interior design across the decades. The references may be old but the aesthetic is certainly not outdated, making Cayre’s personal project a refreshing starting point for the stylish homemaker curious to see how the diversity of Bed Threads transcends time and place.
