Pimped Bedding

Ghetto Fabulous Comforters Make You Feel Like Money in Bed

— February 4, 2009 — Lifestyle
These bed sheets are not for the conservative!

While this is not technically a set a clothing for pimps, you would have to be into “pimp-chic” or be very special (in a tinfoil-hat-wearing kind of way) to allow these items into your home. That said, even I am shocked but the sheer tackiness of these items—all you need now is a mirror on your ceiling, and it is almost like a DIY Brothel.

They’re fabulously kitschy, however I DO have to say some of the covers on WakeUpfrankie.com, such as the Key Lime, mirrors and Rhinestone comforters do have some appeal
Trend Themes
1. Ghetto-fabulous Bedding - New bedding designs that are tacky and kitschy disrupt conventional bedding designs and offer new decorating opportunities
2. DIY Brothel - Mirror-covered ceilings offer a new way of decorating ceilings that is relatively cheap and could disrupt the DIY design industry
3. Pimp-chic - The pimp aesthetic is moving into run-of-the-mill bedroom design and will disrupt traditional home interior decor
4. Tacky Luxury Style - The fusion of luxurious style with tacky designs creates a new kind of luxury style, and offers great potential for disrupting the luxury home goods industry
Industry Implications
1. Bedding - The bed linen industry can open up its range of offerings by incorporating tacky and kitsch designs.
2. Interior Design - Interior designers could venture to include unconventional design features such as ceiling mirrors to bring in new trends.
3. Luxury Home Goods - Luxury home goods companies can experiment bringing in some irreverent designs that could capture the attention of a niche market.
