Luxe to the max
This really is a trunk show: Manrico, which claims to be the first manufacturer of cashmere bedsheets, doesn’t skimp on the details. For customers who purchase 10 or more sets of the lightweight luxury linens -- which start at a whopping $5,200 for a basic king-size set that is packaged in a leather box -- the Manhattan-based textile company throws in the two-part storage case, shown here, which normally sells for $14,500. By comparison, the white and brown blanket with a star motif on the top shelf and the dark brown blanket beneath it seem like bargains at $4,900 and $2,900, respectively. Manrico offers numerous options for customizing its machine-washable and dryer-safe sheets, shown hanging from the sides of the trunk, including piping and border details and color-matching to paint chips.
