One of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of working at AREA is seeing what combinations we can come up with. I've spent many a pleasurable hour in the LA store with a customer or designer, exploring blends of colors and textures to match myriad needs.
We thought to inspire you with some AREA staff favorites and give some insights on choosing coordinates. This time we have picks from Stina of the LA store, and myself.
The soft color of PERLA porcelain with its typical smoothness and irresistibility mixes with superb LIAM graphite alpaca that is the essence of charcoal grey wool (this color is not dyed, but a naturally existing shade). VIENNA linen, part constructivism and part early 20th century Viennese inspired, adds personality and comfort.
This combination illustrates an all-important feature of AREA bedding: the purposeful mixing of linen, cotton, and wool. The idea is to delight all the senses at once while being practical in everyday use.
ANTON is dry, cool, and organic, perfect for sleeping in comfort, especially in combination with SALLY, which is loose with a light drape and unmatched breathability. ELIAS is our newest, heaviest linen yet, with so much texture and weight that in addition to being a luscious pop of color it has an organic-natural feel that can't be found anywhere else.
This tactile combination creates a sleeping experience that exemplifies what AREA brings to the bedding world: an integration of innovative independent design with natural fibers and long-lasting beauty.
