When we think of classic, timeless bedding that offers super soft comfort and oh-so subtle style in abundance, we naturally think of Parachute. So when we heard that they had created a new collection for Crate&Barrel, well... to say that we were excited, is a pretty big understatement.
Just launched and available exclusively at Crate&Barrel, the new collection features a wide range of bedding and towels, all with their unmistakable laid-back Californian luxe-casual feel.
The new collection takes its inspiration from Parachute founder Ariel Kaye's morning walks near her home in Venice Beach - with a palette of crisp whites, soft grays and soothing seaside blues made from premium-quality materials. 'These tranquil shades are perfect for creating a bedroom oasis,' she says.
The range features gauzy quilts and shams made from 100% Turkish cloud cotton - named as such because dressing your bed in these is like sleeping under a cloud.
The brand’s garment-washed, brushed cotton sheets and duvet covers make for a gorgeously soft pairing with the super light and airy waffle linen-cotton bedding and bathrobes.
Coordinating pillows are covered too - with a choice of feather down or hypoallergenic fillings tucked inside cotton or linen shams available in a range of sizes, including an endlessly huggable body pillow.
To round the collection off, there’s a collection of spa quality towels and bathrobes, noted for their plushness and superior absorbency.
'Creating a home that’s restorative, functional and unique has never been more important, says Ariel. ‘I’m excited for people to fall in love with this responsibly-sourced collection.'
Scroll down to discover our top five picks of the new collection, bound to bring a subtle west coast springtime feel to your bedroom and bathrooms this season.

Hello there, I’m Ginevra Benedetti,
Associate Editor on the Homes Content Team at Future.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been writing about interiors for the past 16 years on the majority of Britain’s monthly interiors titles, such as Ideal Home, Country Homes & Interiors and Style at Home, as well as Livingetc and of course, Homes & Gardens.
This naturally feeds into writing for wonderful websites like HomesandGardens.com and IdealHome.co.uk.
Over the years, I’ve interviewed some of the most talented designers in the business and I’ve pretty much written about every area of the home, from shopping and decorating, appliances and home tech, wallpaper and fabric, kitchens and bathrooms, even extensions and conversions.
I never tire about reading or writing about interiors, from classic timeless designs to innovative smart tech - the subject is always evolving, just as our homes do, year after year.
