Variations on a Theme: A Linen Collection in Six Shades of White, from Flaneur

March 12, 2019

When it comes to bedding, I gravitate towards white, every time: it’s timeless, easily cleaned, and effortlessly makes the bed look fresh and crisp. But anyone who’s looked through white paint chips knows there are almost limitless shades and hues, with subtle differences that can set completely different tones. It’s with that in mind that Flaneur, the custom-dyed linens company, launched an all-white collection: “an exploration of bedding colors that go beyond conventional bleached whites to dynamic and relaxing effect.” Which would you choose?
