Browsing the offerings of Anichini, the luxury bedding and linen company based in Vermont, is an easy outlet for your naptime aspirations. The exquisite fabric of each pillowcase, bath set, blanket, throw, tablecloth, napkin, and set of bed sheets or hospitality linens boasts high thread counts and earns even higher style points. Anichini was founded in 1986 by Susan Dollenmaier, who earned her BA in Design under the legendary Buckminster Fuller. Dollenmaier’s goal was to create locally made luxury sheets using Old World techniques, with little or no environmental impact. Anichini is now one of the world’s most prestigious textile and home furnishings brands, raising the bar on the definition of "luxury" with textiles that are the ultimate in opulence and craftsmanship. The color palettes are soft and elegant, and patterns are inspired by exotic regions like Persia and ancient Asia as well as Dollenmaier’s own stash of antique linens (many of which she found in flea markets near her home). It all adds up to an inspired product that’s at once local and global.
Anichini may be based in rural Vermont, but the luxe linen company is far from provincial, as a gander at its Tafetta Shot quilts and pillows reveal. The deep colors are luminescent, and the coverings? Pure silk. The Maldives duvet set comes in the hues of a Tuscany landscape, while the Aladino sheet set is the blue of the sky on a cloudless day.
Don’t sleep through this blowout event, which features the latest luxury linens, cashmere blankets and silk-screened pillows, all at deep discounts. Also on offer are finds like needlepoint benches by Dransfield & Ross, towel sets from Matouk and organza silk curtain panels by Anichini.
