Following in the footsteps of modern business success stories like Casper, Everlane and Warby Parker, Snowe is a new home goods brand that cuts out the middleman in an effort to lower the cost on luxury products and make the shopping process a hell of a lot easier. Working with factories in Portugal and Italy, Snowe makes dining, bedding and bath products out of top-end materials like Limoges porcelain and Egyptian cotton, all cleanly designed and either white, off-white or gray, meaning they’ll fit in with nearly any home aesthetic and stand the sartorial test of time.
Snowe’s dinnerware in particular gives similar products a serious run for their money. Their 16-piece dinner set made from Limoges porcelain (a hard-paste porcelain imported from France, then kilned at 1,400 degrees Celsius) for four runs for $240, while similar competition from JL Coquet costs as much as $140 for a single plate. Snowe’s bedding is a luxury bargain, too. Their Italian-woven, 500-count sheet sets ($265+) made from Egyptian cotton cost hundreds less than similar high-end sheets.
Snowe Home proves that luxury and affordability in the home need not be mutually exclusive. For those who want high-end quality without the high-end price, it makes a whole lot of sense. snowehome.com
