  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

The best money I've ever spend on furniture was for a Hästens frame bed. Infinitely better than the one from IKEA it replaced. There are other fabic options than their white/blue standard - I ordered mine in a solid dark grey.

would hit


You'll probably prefer how the third slide appears on Hästens Danish site here, compared to the English/American one linked above :satisfied:

I currently have Simmons World Class Beautyrest with the pocketed coils just like in Hästens, then topper is Hästens BJX horsehair and I don't sleep any better than on Ikea topper thrown on the floor. It is 50% in our heads and 50% our body temperature. If I sleep in a cold well ventilated room I sleep period.

For me a big part of it was getting one with the right support. The one I had from IKEA was too soft.

Someone started a thread on it, but I've heard good things about Casper. They sell mattresses directly to the consumer at a reduced price. Much like the Warby Parker model.

I think that buying a topper is the best way to get the Hastens feel without spending a crazy amount of money for their nicer beds. I don't have a topper from them but I do use their pillows.

I'm not sure why a mattress being all natural matters. I certainly wouldn't pay a premium for that.

I used to have a Tempurpedic and those really off gas so it's can be nice to have something that isn't made out of chemicals. Also a natural bed has a different feel (not necessarily a better feel).

Subscribed. Spent the last 6 years living in a 900 sq ft space, paring down furniture and "stuff"--and am likely moving to a 2000+ sq ft space. Can't wait to junk it up.

The stuff in your 900 sq ft place will probably look great in your 2000 sq ft without the addition of more stuff. Space is the luxury, not stuff.

Finally got my Bearden tables into place. They need large and thicker glass without the bevel, but I love them.

For a single person living alone 900 sq ft really sn't that bad at all. You should be able to fit any of the common furniture you need in such a space without having to give up much. I've managed in far smaller spaces in the past.
