Color—we all want to use it, but we fear we may use too much or mix the wrong colors. Sometimes all it takes is one key piece to inspire an entire room. For me, that could easily be a quilt from Plover Organic

I first learned of Plover Organic roughly a year ago and was quickly enchanted with its sophisticated yet unashamed use of color. Reds, blues, greens, yellows—nothing was off limits. When co-founder Marisa Kula Mercer moved to one of the greenest cities in the world, Portland, Oregon, she figured it would be easy to find sustainable bedding. Apparently, that wasn’t the case—at least not anything with personality! With her sister-in-law, Sheila Mulvihill, she launched Plover Organic in 2007 to lots of love from the press and consumers. 

Named after a “short-billed shorebird that has been a cherished inspiration in the arts for centuries,” Plover Organic holds fast to its eco-credentials: 

• All items are made from 100 percent organic cotton, are free from herbicides and are grown from non-genetically engineered seeds.
