Myrica Bergqvist (Sweden)

Now, let’s step away from etsy finds for a bit, and look at these stunning acrylic beds from Swedish designer, Myrica Bergqvist, available in several colors and four key styles.

A modern interpretation of the past, Myrica’s designs add just the right touch of ‘wow’ without transforming your bedroom into the set of Marie Antoniette. In addition to headboads, Myrica also creates lighting and home accessories. If you’d like to locate her work, visit her stocklists online. This is Lady Babsy, available in black, white, or mirror.


Queenie, available in clear, white, smokey brown, smokey grey, black, red, mirror. Also shown in top image as a double.


Sir Elton, available in black, white, or mirror. The final headboard (not shown) is Miss Nouveau.

Au Lit : Antique Style Beds – Tres Chic!

I dream of living in one of those pre-war city apartments with soaring ceilings and ornate crown moldings. If I ever do, I’m purchasing a French antique style bed like the ones shown below from new designers Nicole Gale and Jane Jones of Au Lit. I love the green bed with the butterfly print in teal, and the other one with the large graphic palm leaves (sigh), it’s captivating. Now I really want to go to Brimfield in May and comb the market… Just imagine something like this in your bedroom…

Dwell Bedding *New* at Design Public

I’m sure you’ve already heard about the new bedding from Dwell (I love the Chinoiserie collection), but did you know that it’s now available at Design Public? Well, okay – not exactly. But it will be around mid March. For now, you can browse the collection on their website, check out the prices, create a wishlist, and even leave your email address beneath items you’re interested in and Design Public will contact you as soon as they are available. So everything you see here can be yours, around mid March. Tempting, now isn’t it?

Luxury Lab Linens *New*

I was thrilled when Caressa Allen, designer and owner of Luxury Lab in California, wrote in about her new line of bedding. She describes her linens as “clothing for your home” and “art for your bed”. I’d describe this bedding as one part sugar, one part spice.

With bold rocker style graphics, this bedding screams California cool – I imagine Luxury Labs being a huge hit with celebs and hip urban dwellers that are done with sweet bird and branch motifs and want to strike a more femme fatale chord.

I love this somewhat seductive bad girl/boy bedding for many reasons, but one that stands out is that most of these patterns would appeal to men, so if you’re a couple, you won’t strip your other half of his manhood with another sweet floral pattern. Duvet sets (complete with two shams) run at around $285.- complete.

Luxury Lab is fun, flirty, sexy (but subtle), and much thought was put into the design process, materials, and staying as environmentally friendly as possible. I mean, even a girl with crossbones on her shams has a conscience.

Thanks Caressa for introducing us to your rockin’ line!

Psst: I did my homework and discovered that Ana of OhMyGooshness recently interviewed Caressa. Get the full scoop here. Great job, Ana!
