“Our goal was to create a collection that felt designer-informed yet approachable and timeless,” says interior designer Jake Arnold of his latest project, a collection with Parachute that also represents his first-ever product collaboration. “Our aligned sensibilities with bedding made me really excited to dive into products together.”

“My aim is to create spaces that feel impactful yet livable,” says Arnold, a philosophy that has made him a favorite of celebrities including Chrissy Tiegen, Katy Perry and Rashida Jones. Arnold had been using Parachute’s comfortable essentials, which range from bedding to bath linens, to robes, loungewear, bedding and rugs, in his calm and inviting interiors—as well as in his own home—for years. So, when they approached him, the synergy felt like a natural fit with his sensibilities.

“What I love about Parachute is the undone, casual feel of the bedding,” enthuses Arnold. “The way the line is layered and styled makes making a bed super easy but always chic. Less is more and messy is good when it comes to my ideal Parachute look.”

The limited-edition, eleven piece, mix-and-match collection that resulted from their collaboration is effortless yet elegant, combining the laidback ease of Parachute’s California modern sensibilities with the wit and whimsy found in Arnold’s native London. Forged in a rich palette anchored by the soothing contrast of deep brown, light buff and super pale pink and brightened by a touch of burgundy, it’s plush with textures, from sturdy linens to soft cottons, boucle throws to velvet pillows, that adds to the allure of a capsule that ranges from a vintage striped duvet covers and pillows, to pinch pleat curtains and a box pleated bedskirt. Threaded with the unexpected cheek of a bold botanical print, which crawls over a bolster and robe and imbues the collection with a touch of “grandma-chic”, the overall impression is classic and timeless yet indisputably of the moment. 

“What I love about this collection is that it’s dynamic. You can use the full bedding set and style it as is or mix in elements with pieces that you already own,” says Arnold. We can’t wait for bedtime!
