DOWN ETC

The bed is the star of the bedroom and it should be dressed appropriately.

As a leading supplier of soft goods to the luxury hospitality industry for two decades, Down Etc designs top of the bed products to do just that.

Since we firmly believe a pillow is the perfect accent for any room, we manufacture pillow inserts in every geometric shape. We are limited only by our imagination.

We also offer all of the towels, robes, slippers, and accessories you could need for the bath, spa, or beach.

We love to work with designers and set decorators to make the perfect bed or bath and to provide the perfect decorative pillow accents to complete the look of every space.
 
Down Etc offers SDSA members trade pricing
(30% off the retail price) plus a giveback to SDSA’s charity of choice in an amount equal to 10% of SDSA member purchases. Contact the Team at Down Etc to receive the appropriate code to use at the time of your purchase or if you have any questions about our products.

In a Few Words...


Which talent would you most like to have?

The ability to do convincing sleight of hand
 

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
 
Career wise, it is definitely the fact that I have never given up. I've had several low points  and have literally gone from top to bottom, and to be where I am now after all that is something I am very proud of. 


Which word or phrase do you use the most?

 

"Okay..." with a legendary side eye
"Good grief"
"The thing is..."



What do you look for on the Craft Services table?

Wiley Wallaby Black Licorice and roasted almonds


Please name a benefit of being an SDSA member.
 
The support and the ability to share experiences with such an immensely talented group of individuals.



 
SDSA Members are hard at work on...
