Colin King's latest collection with Cultiver proves linen bedding isn't just for summer.
Breathable, lightweight, refreshingly crisp—linen bed sheets have long been our go-to summer bedding staple. But thanks to interiors stylist Colin King's new bedding collection with the Australian bedding brand Cultiver, we're realizing we don't need to relegate our favorite bedding to off-season storage once the temperatures drop. Crafted in Portugal, the new line reimagines white, airy summer linens in rich colors (think aubergine and royal blue) and heavyweight (320 GSM) linen. The result: cozy yet elevated bed covers we'll want to snuggle up with all winter—and keep within arm's reach all summer, just in case the AC get a little overzealous. Basically, we won't sleep without them.
“My vision for this collection was to create something timeless and versatile, with hues that transcend seasons and trends," King says. "Cultiver’s signature heavyweight linen has a heavy drape and thick texture, making it the ideal top layer of the bed throughout cooler months while serving as an alternative to a duvet in warmer months," he explains.
Invest in just one Heavyweight Bedcover ($575) that will serve as the star of the room, or mix and match the Repose Cushion ($170) with the Solace Throw ($280) for a pairing you can change over time. No matter which colors you choose, King assure us that we can't go wrong. "With tonal and complementing hues, I designed each piece in The Stylist’s Collection to layer seamlessly together, while also standing alone as a hero piece, so you can have the perfect bed covering year-round," he says.
In addition to meticulous attention to color coordination, King considered the fit and proportions of these pieces in a way only a seasoned interiors stylist would. The oversized bedcover drapes over pillows and pools onto the floor for an elegant visual effect. The cherry on top: these bed toppers are machine-washable and don't require a cumbersome insert. They may just tempt you to break up with your duvet cover.
