Cardboard Chic
By David A. Greene / Published by Dwell

From the Netherlands, of all places, comes bedding that gives you the experience of sleeping under corrugated cardboard, while still providing the high thread count you can't live without.

Snatching political correctness from the jaws of awesomely bad taste, Le Clochard donates 40%  of the proceeds from their poverty-chic linens to SZN, a foundation for homeless Dutch youth. Made from 144-thread-per-inch Pakistani cotton, these no-iron quilt cover and pillowcases are perfect for a king-sized mattress or your favorite park bench. (Newspaper raincoats can't be far behind)
