It is fascinating to observe how the different background of their designers has such an obvious and powerful impact on their works and the Natori bedding is a great example for that. That is because while Vera Wang was a designer with Steve Madden and then moved on to become famous on her own for her wedding gowns designs, so are her bedding sets a luxurious exploration of the innovative ways in which the classic can be explored as new. And because Josie Natori is a Philippines native she understands the beauty that each ancient culture possesses and she is able to bring that to life in her Natori bedding collection.
That is to say that the Natori bedding sets are inspired by the beauty held in many of the ancient civilizations and so they are a beautiful exploration of the essence held by each one of those cultures.
We would like to take a look together first at what we consider the most beautiful Natori bedding sets of which the Samarkand set is the newest and perhaps the most beautiful. It is inspired by the ancient city of Samarkand, the jewel of the Silk Road and one of the first moments in human history when several cultures came together to create something of extraordinary beauty. The Samarkand bedding set pays homage to that ancient city and is every bit as beautiful and luxurious as you would expect. It is in fact a T300 thread count mixture of cotton and silk. And for the price you will receive a comforter, bed skirt and 2 standard shams in the Samarkand Natori bedding set.
However the most famous Natori bedding to date is the Sumatra set which is inspired by the Uzbek suzani patterns that their ancient civilization created. They are actually the direct descendants of the Sumerian civilization so the appeal this bedding set has on its owner is very strong and has its roots in the very birth of mankind. The only problem here is that you will need to assemble this set piece by piece as it is only sold like that.

But before you go on the hunt for the Sumatra bedding you might want to look at the Potala palace inspired Natori bedding. Potala Palace was the forbidden city of the most spiritual civilization on earth that lived in Tibet until the Chinese invasion forced the Dalai Lama and all the religious hierarchy to fly to exile. Since then the palace has become a museum which is a petty reward for the destruction of such a noble civilization but it had allowed for a deeper exploration and it is the inspiration for this beautiful and shattering bedding set. However here too you will have to pick out your favorite pieces to create the entire Natori bedding set as we have only featured the duvet here.
The beauty of the Natori bedding is that it is based on a philosophy of comfort and everything else stems from there.
