Rich Fulop is the co-founder of Brooklinen, a direct-to-consumer bedding company that is solving the problem of finding great bedding. Frustrated and unable to find high quality sheets at an affordable price, Fulop knew there had to be a better way. He and his co-founder headed to Asia and Europe to source the best materials and created a product that they are proud of. We covered them back when they were in their Kickstarter phase, and now they're all gown up! Due to high demand, they are having trouble keeping their products in stock! Watch the video and maybe you'll be convinced to get Brooklinen in your bed...

About: "We are a startup based in Brooklyn, NY and we are going to help you sleep a little better at night. Our mission is to bring you luxury hotel quality bed sheets with designs that are versatile enough for any home, at a price that won’t break the bank.

Consider us your personal sourcing agent. We take the time to curate perfect fabrics and develop designs for our customers to eliminate the hassle and mystery of buying your sheets. Our no-nonsense approach emphasizes quality and affordability rather than wild designs, celebrity endorsements and fancy labels.

We’ve partnered with factories around the world that manufacture luxury bed sheets that retail for over $500 a set. We work closely with them to produce small batches of our simple and sleek designs. By selling directly to you and cutting out extra costs, we offer incredible products at a fraction of the price."
