Cozy Up to #PetsInUnison

Our bedding was made for you and your animal companions — here’s how!

Nothing beats a good catnap — especially if it’s in Unison bedding. But seriously … cats, dogs and other furry friends really have found themselves at home atop our soft, Portugal-cotton sheets lately. And it’s inspired us to slow down, cozy up and enjoy life at a more leisurely pace — just like our animal companions.

Pets love to snuggle in the same places we do. We like to call them #PetsInUnison! Just check out these great snaps from Instagram of animals kicking back on beds adorned with Unison’s signature graphic pop. We hope these four-legged friends inspire you to relax more in comfort and style.

A Real Taste of Summer … at the Unison Store!

Check Out our Recap of our Rare Bird Preserves Tasting

overhead

We’ve been baking a lot these days. Chalk it up to easy-breezy summer: Longer days give us the extra time we need to whip up pastries, cakes and cookies — and eat them all before bedtime.

We think baked goods pair so well with fresh preserves. As luck would have it, we happen to know one of the savviest purveyors in the Chicago area. Elizabeth Madden, owner of Rare Bird Preserves, makes small batches of fruit preserves by hand in her quiet little kitchen. (But don’t be fooled — they end up in hugely popular mega-retailers like Whole Foods.) And she recently came out to our shop to sample her goods and get everyone excited about summer baking possibilities.

We wanted to share photos that recap this delicious event. Let’s start with those glorious preserves — crafted by and hand jarred by Elizabeth herself. She cracked open so many varieties that our heads were spinning. Lemon blueberry. Peach lavender. And more. She spooned dollops atop scones from Chicago baker Scone City. All we have to say is … match made in heaven.

If you want to re-create the magic in your own kitchen, we’ve got everything to get you equipped.

First, those bowls: Our Falcon Prep Set, made from enamel, takes you straight to egg-beating paradise. Use it to sift flour and mix any number of other things.

If you prefer glass, these mixing bowls will do you right.

Finish the prep work with our rolling pin and pop everything in the oven with our graphic mitts. Voilà — baking bliss!
