Coastal Quilts by Haptic Lab

If you’re fond of one of the several coastal areas in the United States, you’ll want to take a look at Haptic Lab’s new Coastal Quilts. Gold polysilk is appliquéd onto a pale blue soft cotton, representing the familiar places near the sea. Puget Sound, Penobscot Bay, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Cape Cod are available now, with more following throughout the next several weeks and months.

Hopewell Quilts + Pillows

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Hopewell’s quilts and it certainly won’t be the last. Have you taken a look at their recent collection? There’s quite a few modern pillows and quilts, so if your bed, sofa, or wall needs a little kick in the pants in terms of color, you’d best take a look and see if something catches your fancy.

Tokyo 2 and New York 1 Bitmap Blanket

Gah! I know that Cristian Zuzunaga’s Digital Sunrise Blanket might have been a little too much color and pattern, but don’t let that dissuade you from considering some of the other knitted blankets in the collection. Tokyo 2 Bitmap Blanket is the one above, and New York 1 Bitmap Blanket the one below. Both are a little less crazy with their limited color palette, yet they’ll still prove that you can be brave when it comes to textiles. Perhaps one might fit the bill for a lightweight summer blanket for your bed? You may also purchase these blankets (amongst other items) directly from Zuzunaga’s Design Studio (€240 ex.VAT), but be advised you’ll need to pay for shipping/customs.

Digital Sunrise Blanket

More pixilated textiles, though this time it’s turned all the way up to an almost obnoxious color play of red, yellow, blue, green and black. Spanish artist and designer Cristian Zuzunaga is the man behind this silk and superfine merino wool blanket, and, if you’re a fan of vivid colors and strong patterns, you’ll want to take a look at the other items in his Bitmap collection, for there’s a fair share of clothes and other textiles sure to infuse your wardrobe and home with one heck of patterned punch.

Cross Blanket

Polar vortex, pshaw! No cold will bother you when you’ve got this Cross Blanket from Pia Wallén wrapped around you. Especially because in Swedish folk art tradition, the cross is a strong symbol for hope, so you’ll be doubly optimistic whenever you wrap it around yourself (note: the smaller size could be appropriate for a little one’s crib/bed). Or, if you really want to spend some dough and have the larger, wool version, the original Crux Blanket is available as well.

Meg Callahan Quilts

Holy. How nice is it to see some super modern graphic patterns applied to quilts? Matter has three of Meg Callahan’s quilts entitled ‘Spine’, ‘Ada’, and ‘Harrah’ on their website, and while the prices aren’t listed, we’ll assume they’ll not be what most of us would call affordable. They are, however, what most of us would call amazing. The Spine and Ada quilts use digital printing and industrial machine quilting while Harrah is an entirely hand stitched patchwork.

Scholten & Baijings’ Comforter Cover and Pillow Cases

Hello, hello. Does this mean we don’t have to settle for boring bedding? Yes, if you don’t mind the $228 price tag, which actually isn’t too bad considering what quality bedding cost nowadays. You might recognize Scholten & Baijings’ color and pattern work from their delightful tea towels, blankets and pillows, but now they’ve branched out into the bedding arena, thank goodness, with what I can only call an excellent shot at success.

Paint Chip Quilt in Blue

Here’s a very nice handmade quilt on Etsy, and although it’s a smaller size (crib/throw), it’s proof that quilts can be quite modern if handled the right way. You can request a custom quilt with specific colors from the seller; expect prices to run from $300 to $1000 depending on the size.

100% cotton.

Vertigo Bedding

I’m sort of loving the black and white stripes of the new-ish Vertigo Bedding. There’s something so simple about building on a base of black and white… with this duvet, you just need to add an extra pillow in a nice accent color, maybe a throw at the end of the bed for softness/texture, and ta-da, your bedroom is finished off. Also, the same stripes are available in a wallpaper (Vertigo Wallpaper), which I plan to post soon.

Bedtime Story Pillowcase Set

White pillowcases seem so boring when competing against David Shrigley’s version. With these you’ve got a built-in bedtime story for whenever your brain just doesn’t have the energy to make up its own, which is probably often, am I right? I’ve long liked Shrigley’s stuff and certain items seem to be the perfect sort of gift for those that appreciate hand drawn text and such. Also, if you like the look of these pillowcases, don’t forget about the Miranda July pillowcase set, which is equally delightful.

Commune Nap Bag

If you’re lucky enough to not bat an eyelid at the price of this Nap Sleeping Bag, good for you. For the rest of us, we’ll take note of the wonderful idea of having a sleeping bag specifically for taking naps or picnicking on, especially one with stripes and plaids such as this one, and file it away for a future DIY project.

FunQuilts

Also, be sure to note their smaller reversible 30″ x 40″ Many Hands Blankies ($75.00, shown below) made by developmentally disabled adults.

Miranda July pillowcase set

Which pillow would you rather sleep on?

“Here you will dream of endless kissing” and “Here you will dream of people you admire exposing your fraudulence” pillowcase set. The wondrous and wonderful Miranda July, a stunning new voice in, well, film, art, performance, literature…While she is finding it difficult or rather unnecessary to confine herself to a single genre, her work is instantly recognizable by an unmistakable charm and humor that can inject the everyday with a surprising magic.

Third Drawer Down, 2009, edition of 1000, 100% cotton.

How about this ‘urban’ bedding from CB2? Like it or not? I’m leaning towards ‘like’.
