The design world is full of copycats. I never thought simple stripes could really be imitated, but as I'm finding out, it's been done. DwellStudio's Draper Stripe Chinois Blue and Ash Sheet Sets ($260), both simple gray-and-white striped sheets in subtly different colors, are paired by the textile company with saffron yellow bedding pieces. The palette is nice, and has been popular since it was introduced, but I wouldn't call it innovative — or more importantly, worthy of copying.
But one retailer that I'm sure you're all very familiar with has produced some very Draper Stripe-inspired bedding. And, it's much cheaper! Want to see it?
West Elm's Stripe Print Sheet Set ($79-119) is an unmistakable imitation of DwellStudios' bedding. Seeing as it's made of "silky-soft 300-thread-count cotton percale," and a queen set is a whole $160 cheaper, I see no reason not to go with West Elm's version. They're just stripes for God's sake!
It's also a great pick for gender-neutral bedrooms if you're trying to dress your bed for two!
