Savvy Tastemaker: Vicki and Rich Fulop of Brooklinen

Savvy Tastemakers: Vicki and Rich Fulop of Brooklinen

 

“Crisp and classic, these sheets are a sure fire hit with the guys and the gals.”

—Refinery29

A few weeks ago I received a set of Brooklinen Bedford Navy Stripes Luxe Sheets in the mail. I was initially intrigued by the brand after Will Nathan mentioned it in his Savvy Tastemaker interview—the clever name and the blue and white striped bedding was enough for me to give them a test run. I love how crisp and buttery-smooth they are!

I was such a fan of their quirky cool brand, that I reached out to the co-founders, Vicki and Rich to be part of the Savvy Tastemaker series. Read on for everything bedding and Brooklyn.
