thomas paul bedding preview

I’m always excited for pre-fall previews because they’re a reminder that new design is just around the corner. After all the spring shows, the design market gets a little quiet (understandably, since everyone just debuted their new lines), and I find myself itching for new things this time of year. Thomas Paul has a new bedding (and pillow and shower curtain) line coming out, so I wanted to share a little preview. I’ve seen a lot of neutral bedding for the past few months, so I’m excited for the bright bits of orange and deep blue. I’ll update with details as soon as the collection is for sale, but for now, you can check out the rest of Thomas’ line here. xo, grace

  1. Octopus Bedding. Want. Now. Reminds me of the Octopus curtains at Anthro… in fact, I think they sold out! Sad, I say!

    In. LOVE.

    Makes me want to go back to bed.

  3. Just found your blog the other day and I am OBSESSED with it! These color palettes are amazing, thanks for sharing!

  4. Ellen says:

    wait, are those pillows directly inspired by Lance Wyman’s 1968 Olympics design?

  5. Haley says:

    These are beautiful! Just the bedding I’ve been dreaming of.

  6. Holy awesome! I’m with Fresh Cut Spaces – that octopus bedding is amazing!!! My mind is also a little blown by the whale pillows. That is inspiring me to build a diptych silk screen…

  7. Alison says:

    I’m white-bedding-obsessed, but I might be rethinking that stance with these brilliant prints. :)

  22. Rich says:

    Fantastic bedding! I especially like the Octopus and the one with the Whale on the Pillows and ships on the bedspread.

  31. Marie says:

    I LOVE the ship print, unfortunately with his pillows going to 100$ I don’t think I could afford it! :(

  32. Daise says:

    These are cool design, is this cotton, and a touch of photography. I would love to purchase them.

  33. Francesca says:

    I’m crazy for the ship bedding!!!!

  34. I am in LOVE with the whale and ship design!! I cannot wait for this line to go on sale!

  35. TP says:

    Thanks to all for the positive comments, the bedding collection will not be available at retail until October. As for the bed, it was a prop house rental, so not really sure of the provenance.

  36. jo says:

    ohhh the octopus bedding…..but between our anthro octopus dishes and tp octopus shower curtain this would be too much. or AWESOMER.

  37. Heather says:

    Love this…now onto browse the website for more items I surely don’t need but definitely want!

  38. Christina says:

    I must have that lion pillow. Immediately.

  39. Tari brand says:

    When will they be available? Can’t find the bedding anywhere!

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      Not till fall ;)


  40. Pamphilia says:

    Love everything except the Octopus, which, I fear, is long past its sell-by date, right up there with birds and twee things. I totally want the spanish galleon!

  41. Justin Watt says:

    I’m guessing that the bed frame in the photos is a rental:
    (which only makes me want it more)

  42. Lisa says:

    Octopus is my fav, but I really love all things TP!

  43. Helen says:

    If you love something ignor whether it’s “past it’s sell by date” in someone elses opinion.
    If an object/design is as well executed as this is, it’s always going to be gorgeous. Love it use it. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

  44. Carly says:

    Can you buy these? Preferrably the octopus one. But where?
