LA-based startup Parachute is giving away a complete bedding set to one lucky Remodelista reader; the winner will get a queen-size Percale Venice Set–a flat sheet, duvet cover, and two pillowcases–plus two Pillow Inserts (just launched) and a down or down alternative Duvet Insert. To enter, sign up for emails from Parachute and Remodelista by entering your email address in the box at the bottom of this post by Thursday, October 7. The winner will be chosen at random and will be notified via email by October 9. The contest is open to readers in the US and Canada (except Quebec); see Official Rules for details.
Parachute was one of the first Internet-era companies to rethink the high price tag of luxury linens (see Eat, Pray, Love: Luxury Linens for Less). For founder Ariel Kaye, the impetus was a trip to Italy’s Amalfi Coast and a “perfect Italian sleep experience” that she sought to re-create at home.
Parachute got its start manufacturing highest-quality cotton bedding in a family-owned factory in Tuscany and has since expanded its offerings to include a complete line of sheets, duvets, duvet covers, pillows, and blankets in cotton, linen, and cashmere. The company continues to work directly with factories, eliminating third-party distributors, all to keep quality high and prices low.
