What are the most popular Calvin Klein Bedding Collections for the 2012 Season?
Posted: Jul 26 2012
Calvin Klein bedding has to be one of the most popular and sought after designer bed collections. With a taste for modern texture patterns and muted background colors, the Calvin Klein sets are one of our most popular best sellers. If you are looking for a closeout Calvin Klein set Swanky Outlet has the resources to try and help our customers locate the linens in order to complete their current collections. Since Calvin Klein collections are sold by the piece instead of as a set, most people generally purchase either a comforter or a duvet cover first and possibly the calvin klein pillow shams to match. Those are the basic bedding essentials to start your collection. Once the client is ready to complete the set then other Calvin Klein pieces can be added to the current collection such as a bedskirt, european pillow shams, a bed blanket, and some decorative throw pillows. Choosing between a comforter and a duvet cover is basically a personal preference. Generally the duvet cover is easier to remove and launder without any hassle. The comforter is going to be a little more cumbersome and require a larger capacity possibly commercial washer and dryer to clean.
We are going to highlight some of the most popular best suited Calvin Klein collections from the 2012 season. Over the last few seasons Calvin Klein has introduced lesser inexpensive lines of bedding which include comforter and duvet cover sets that include a set of standard or king pillow shams. Most calvin klein higher end bedding is all sold separately with some shams costing up to $150 each.
1. Calvin Klein Bamboo Flowers
The Bamboo Flowers by Calvin Klein has a blue asian inspired look to it and consists of either a comforter or a duvet cover as the main bedding centerpiece. The comforter and duvet covers come in the full size, queen size, and king sizes. The Calvin Klein Bamboo Flowers comforter and duvet covers are 100% combed cotton with a luxurious 220-thread-count, vat dyed for longer-lasting color and softness. The full and queen size comforter or duvet cover are sold pretty much as the same size which is 88 x 92 and runs about $350 retail price. The king size which some use on their california king bed is 107 x 92 and runs about $400 retail price. All of the calvin klein bamboo flower shams are sold separately. They consist of the standard and king size pillow shams which have the same pattern as the duvet cover and comforters. Standard size pillow shams are 20 x 26 while king size pillow shams are 20 x 36. There are two different types of european pillow shams associated with the bamboo flowers collection. One of the euro pillow shams is the same pattern as the duvet and comforter and the other one which is a little harder to locate is a blue textured silk called the Kinu pacific sham. The corded blocks bed blanket or coverlet is a must have to drape at the end of the bed or cover up for a little relaxation time. Last but not least, the decorative pillows that finish off this collection are fabulous made of silk organza pattern to contrast really well with the bedding. The bamboo flowers collection by calvin klein has been by far the most popular and best selling bedding set for the past several seasons.
2. Calvin Klein Oxidized Paisley
With the lovely brown overtones and soft luxurious feel, the the oxidized paisley was one of Swanky Outlet designer top selling bedding sets. A great description online about the set is "Overlapping paisley prints in muted earth tones mix with rich textures and intricate prints to create a new look of modern elegance." The oxidized paisley collection consists of your choice of comforter or duvet cover in the original oxidized paisley print pattern and matching standard or king size pillow shams with the same pattern but are sold separately. The oxidized paisley european pillow sham also known as wood has a stitching texture in the brown tone with back french envelope closure which is a sure signature of most calvin klein euro shams. The bedskirt is the solid classic sateen bear color made of 280 thread count of supima cotton with an 18 inch bedskirt drop. The sheets that coordinate with the oxidized paisley consists of two options between the solid sateen bear color or the printed texture look of the camel pattern. This collection offers both a coverlet and a bed blanket based on personal preference. I have always been a fan of the calvin klein basketweave blankets which come in a vast array of colors. The one that coordinates with the oxidized paisley is the solid brown bear color. I was really impressed though by the dash chenille cotton coverlet which is super soft and also durable. The icing on the cake with this collection are the decorative throw pillows which include the 18 inch square known as pony and the breakfast pillow as well.
3. Calvin Klein Mercury Flower
The mercury flowers collection was very popular in the early spring and summer months. The comforter, duvet cover, and shams have a pale and delicate pattern of watercolor blossoms. This beautiful is made from 220 thread count combed cotton percale. The european or euro pillow sham is a very lightweight pucker texture of silk in a light blue tone. The blanket is the classic basketweave in the color blade. The options for the sheets include the print pattern called spring and the solid color called solar. The solar color is also the same in the bedskirt that has an 18 inch skirt drop as well. Two decorative pillows complete this lovely collection.
4. Calvin Klein Double Neutral Weave
If you are looking for very classic subtle muted colors such as nudes and pale neutrals. The collection emphasizes the nude and neutral lines in the duvet cover and standard or king pillow shams known as the double neutral pattern. The sheets and pillowcases can either have a dramatic contrast with the sprig floral pattern or a blending of darker nude solid color called straw. The straw solid is the color of the bedskirt with an 18 inch skirt drop. The euro pillow sham is another tone of neutral called butter made of silk. The classic basketweave blanket that coordinates with the double neutral weave collection is called steel. My favorite decorative throw pillow is the 18 inch square with the hanging medallions attached to it.
5. Calvin Klein Acacia
The calvin klein acacia bedding collection has always remind me of a darker bamboo flowers style duvet cover. The duvet cover, comforters, and standard or king pillow shams have a gorgeous fern pattern on a darker blue, hint of gray, or muted plum purple mix background. The brown tint Mink blanket by calvin klein is a little heavier to me than the classic basketweave pattern, but it is made of 100% cotton and is super soft. This blanket really brings out the fern print in the collections main pattern. The european sham is almost a plaid style yarn dyed silk face with a color called plum. The sheets and pillowcases can be purchased in a textured print pattern called nightshade or the solid color also know as the color quarry which is a form of gray and they fit mattresses up to 18 inches deep. The bedskirt is also the same quarry color with an 18 inch bedskirt drop. The woven pleats silk accent throw pillow is 12 x 16 and known as spaced pleats.
