Linen has both been around forever, but up until recently was mostly reserved for sofa or furniture upholstery, clothing, and curtains. As people have become increasingly more willing to invest more money in their sleep, brands—including Brooklinen and Parachute Home—have been incorporating the softer-with-time natural textile into their bedding collections. But for UK-based brand Piglet, stonewashed linen is their signature (and only!) offering. The direct-to-consumer brand recently launched in the US and hopes to make us all linen converts with their gorgeous, naturally effortless and durable home goods collection.
“I started Piglet in early 2017 in response to the changing ways that we use our homes,” the direct-to-consumer brand’s founder Jessica Mason, tells MyDomaine. “I have always loved interiors but felt that none of the pristine, polished homes presented by other more traditional brands reflected the realities of my home life. I wanted to create homewares that would be effortless, durable, super low maintenance—I can’t imagine ever wanting to iron sheets—and that would look beautiful even on an occasionally unmade bed.”
She started with 100% French flax bed linen duvet covers and pillowcases in a few calming colors, and quickly expanded the brand to include much more bedding, sleepwear, and table linen after Piglet gained a cult following in the UK amongst lovers of high quality basics. Most recently, they released an accessories collection of 100% linen throws and cushions.
Crafted from Piglet’s signature soft linen, the cushions and throws feature a natural crinkled look that adds dimension to any home. Available in an untreated natural linen or a soft cream color, the basics look chic styled alone or paired with Piglet’s bedding colors. The cushions are 25.5in x 25.5in and the throws are available in multiple sizes to perfectly drape over different beds and sofas. The good news is that people are loving the expanded collection. The bad news? The cushions sold out almost immediately.
However, if you aren’t into the perfectly imperfect look of linen—creased and crumpled and pretty much impossible to iron out—you should avoid Piglet completely. For those of us who bask in the glory of their beautiful and luxuriously messy look, we see them as symbols of loving use.
