Are you an Extreme Tucker? This bed-making trend snuck up on me: I didn’t notice it…I didn’t notice it…bam! it’s everywhere! My anecdotal research into our archives revealed a penchant for it in modern and masculine interiors and also predominantly on platform beds, but there were plenty of exceptions. It has a debonaire, tailored quality that avoids being pretentious. It’s the Cary Grant of bed making.

An informal survey of AT editors revealed only one “tucker” in our midst and she is not 100% loyal to this bed-making method. What about you? Is this your preferred way to make up your bed?

(And, one thing’s for sure: this is not the 10-second-bed.)
